Garden Gleanings - Meeting tonight at Hong Hong

Posted Friday, March 28, 2008, at 5:33 PM

The new garden group is meeting tonight at the Hong Kong restaurant on Madison Street at 6:30. I'll be bring aloe vera cuttings, some airplane rootings and another succulent plant to give away.

We forgot to get the announcement in the paper, so bring all your friends.

Wow, I am definitely too late for the garden group meeting. How often do you meet and do you have to be an expert? I live in a dark apartment and would love to grow something other than philodendrons but nothing lasts very long without a lot of light. Any suggestions?

Hi leChat!

Right now we are meeting every other Friday night to talk about all kinds of gardening topics, and no, you do not have to be an expert!

This is my first year raising a garden, and there are a few others who are first-timers. There are also some very expierenced gardeners there. Everyone is SUPER nice, and Steve was more than generous with his cuttings that he shared with us tonight.

We talk about everything...composting, flower gardens, house plants, vegi gardens, etc.

I know for certain that you will not have a problem recieving suggestions on plants that can survive in your enviroment. Good luck!

Thank you so much. I will try to put it on my calendar for an upcoming event.

Sorry I missed the meeting. Issues and whatnots...I'll be there next time and will bring a cutting of ivy from my mom's place. I swear it grew three inches over the weekend.

I was wondering where you were! LoL Aren't you the one that got free horse manuer (sp?)? I wanted to ask you more about that. Where did you get it again, and who did you contact?

Heehee, it's free from me! We have a few horses, so it's kind of like the berry patches...pick your own!

Steve...will you e-mail my e-address to Mary?
