All About African Violets

On Thursday, 7th November, the Mitchelton and Districts Garden Club meets at the Enoggera Memorial Hall, in Trundle Street.  

African Violets is the topic of guest speakers, Althea and Barry Connor. The African Violet is a very fussy member of the plant family and it must have the right conditions to survive.  Althea and Barry will share this information with those attending the meeting on the first Thursday in November. The meeting commences after morning tea served at 9.45 a.m.  Visitors and new members are most welcome.

The December meeting on the 5th will be for members and invited guests only, and will consist of end of year activities such as presentation of prizes to successful exhibitors, celebration of the club’s 55th anniversary which occurred last month, and other entertainment.  This club will then go into recess until the first Thursday in February 2020. 

If you haven’t already done so, don’t delay in sowing seeds for summer annuals and vegetables. Sunflowers and zinnias are a couple of hardy plants to grow. It wouldn’t hurt to scatter seeds of the small marigold here and there in the garden too.  Not only will the marigold flowers attract bees, the marigold plants will deter nematodes attacking the roots of the other plants you are growing.

The hall is accessible by wheel chair and close to public transport. For more information please phone the president, Pat, on  3356 1256.
