Blueskin Garden Club

The Blueskin Garden Club held its monthly meeting on Thursday 14 June
2007 at the Waitati Hall. At this meeting the following office
bearers were elected:
President: Lyne Carlyle
Secretary: Lyn Hastie
Treasurer: Glenys Clements
There are 8 committee members.
Our guest speaker was Gwen Pullar from Waikouaiti who gave a very
informative and interesting talk on old roses. Gwen shared her
passion and knowledge of Heritage Roses with us. She discussed the
different varieties of old fashioned roses, where to plant them and
how and when to prune. We all went home determined to plant at least
two in our own gardens and promised to visit her in the summer to view
her garden when it is in full bloom.

The raffle winners were:
Lyn Hastie - 1st
Rowena Park - 2nd
Margaret Meder - 3rd

The winner of the Best Bloom was Lesley Smith and the winner of the
Best Vegetable was Daphne Henderson.
A sales table was also held, and the meeting finished with a cup of
tea and home baking.

Our next meeting is to be held on Saturday 7th July in the Warrington
Memorial Hall commencing at 10am, when we will be having a felting
workshop. Bring along a lunch to share.
