BLUESKIN GARDEN CLUB (column)

BLUESKIN GARDEN CLUB

By Lynnaire Johnston

The Blueskin Garden Club has a varied programme planned for the upcoming year.

By the time you read this, the Club will have learned all there is to
know about rose pruning, having visited Lyne Carlyle's garden and
wreaked havoc on her unsuspecting roses.

Next up will be a pebble-pot-making demonstration on August 15 at East
Taieri. Learning how to make these gorgeous little pots will no doubt
cause a plethora of them to suddenly sprout up in gardens around the
Bay. As a reward for the hard work of pot-making, the Club will visit
Astonville Nurseries on the return home. This nursery, while small,
has many varieties of plants at reasonable cost.

In September the Club will learn about vegetable growing, just in time
to get their gardens in for spring. This will be followed, on
September 25 and 26, by the annual Spring Flower Show in the Waitati
Hall.

In subsequent months, the Club will learn what to grow in Blueskin
Bay, have a field trip and visit local gardens. We welcome new members
with green fingers or who wish to improve their gardening skills.

For more information phone Lyn Hastie on 482 2896.
