Last Garden club meeting of the year this coming Frdiay, 19thPosted Monday, November 15, 2010, at 8:13 PM
Not ready to call it quits yet. Neither is the dandelion.
Our mints are still looking good and the Datura you gave us espoontoon does not know when to quit. I have numerous seed pods but I think I will cut it back and see if I can have the same luck you did with it coming back this Spring.
Drab rainy days like today gives me time to get caught up on our inside plants. Today I divided and re-planted some jade plant, scented geranium, and re-potted a chrysanthemum Deb's mother won at a Chamber coffee. Looking around me, I have plenty to keep me busy for a few weeks, at least.
This Friday is our last garden club meeting until Friday, January 21. We arrive between 6:00 PM and 6:30 and try to get "down to business" (garden business) by 6:30. Our host for the last few months has been Celebration Assisted Living and we truly appreciate their hospitality.
We can talk about putting our gardens to bed for the winter or caring for indoor plants and flowers. For example, our African violets seem to flower year round, but they need to be re-potted, preened and revitalized. Some plants need to get a rest and winter is the natural time. We have not had issues with insects or diseases, but they can be devastating if not caught early.
