Unfortunately, the April meeting of the Mitchelton and Districts Garden Club had to be cancelled due to COVID. However, the guest speaker, Craig Duncan, a representative from Rocky Point Mulching, has kindly agreed to deliver his talk at the garden club meeting on 3rd June at the Enoggera Memorial Hall.
His topic is ‘General Gardening’. Rocky Point Mulching produces all kinds of potting mixes and soil conditioners as well as a range of mulches. When other representatives from the company have been guest speakers they have had products for those present to buy and this was a great help to garden club members.
The meeting commences after morning tea which is served at 9.45 a.m. Visitors and new members are most welcome.
May is the month for planting fruit trees, pruning geraniums, inspecting Azaleas for petal blight fungus which last year would have caused buds to turn brown and drop prematurely. A fungicide treatment commenced this month should control this problem. Mother’s Day occurs this month and a flowering plant would be a long lasting gift.
The club meets on the first Thursday of the calendar month and has vacancies for more members. For more information, please phone the president, Pat, on 3356 1256.
