We have our regular monthly meeting on Wednesday, March 18 and our speaker is Teresa Watkins from Sustainable Horticultural Environments. Her topic is ‘I promise you a rose garden.’ She will talk about how to plant and maintain a rose garden here in Central Florida.
The rose is one of the most famous and beloved of all flowers, William Shakespeare wrote: ‘What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.’ Roses were grown in China about 5000 years ago and are a favourite flower for Valentine’s Day and other special occasions.
Details of Garden Club’s Spring Pine Straw sale will be available shortly, look out for them on our website, on the Front Porch and in the Friday Flash. Once again, supply is limited and will be sold only via the website around the first week of March.
