Bob Warren shows Garden Club how to grow from seeds

FLEMING ISLAND – The Garden Club jumped on its Spring Gardening with an excellent talk from Bob Warren on Planting from Seed.

Do you know the chief advantages of growing from seed? It saves lots of money, and you can pick your flowers and veggies.

So as a gardener, if you want your selection of plants – at a fraction of the cost – look into seeds.

Bob is an experienced gardener. Along with his wife, Carolyn, Bob created a community butterfly garden within Homeowners Association guidelines, which he supplies with vibrant plants grown from seed. Pictures of this garden thrilled his audience and inspired garden club members to start their plants. Part of Bob’s presentation included giving away already-grown plants to garden club members, which is always a bonus.

Besides the meeting, garden club members also got to experience a travel experience this month vicariously. One of our members just returned from a three-month cruise to Africa. She brought her pictures, and we went out to lunch to learn about her trip. Her pictures were also shown at the meeting for members who couldn’t join us at the restaurant. It was amazing, and we shared a lot of fellowships.

Next month, on March 13, at 10 a.m., the garden club will feature Cotton Morlock with a talk on Pruning and Tool Sharpening. Cotton is a Master Gardener and veteran Landscaper. Now is the time to cut those frost-bitten plants back to allow the plants to renew themselves and make room for all the new plantings.

The Garden Club of Fleming Island meets monthly at the Fleming Island Library Meeting Room (except in June and July). Our meetings are free and open to the public. Come join us.
