    Lancaster Garden Club

    2019 Fall Bulb Fundraiser

    The bulb sale is back! Once again the Lancaster Garden Club is selling spring-flowering bulbs as a fundraiser to support our mission of education, conservation, and community beautification. Just look at all the garden eye candy in our LGC 2019 Bulb Catalog.pdf!

    As in past years we've included a variety of beautiful and unusual tulips and daffodils along with some hard-to-find specialty bulbs. They're all gorgeous, of course, but many of them are also deer, rodent, and rabbit resistant (yay!), drought tolerant, and good naturalizers. Who doesn't love that? All are top size, high quality bulbs for big, beautiful blooms next spring. Whether you stick with your favorites or try something new this year, we think there's something for everyone!

    Putting the Garden to Bed:  a presentation covering fall gardening activities including terrific tools of the trade,  planting bulbs, dividing and transplanting perennials,  and tips for preparing gardens for winter weather.  She also covers working to remove invasive species, with October being the best time of year to treat woody invasive plants like bittersweet, Norway maples, buckthorn, etc.  There is still time to do some transplanting although a little late for many perennials.   

    Suzanne Mahler has been developing her 1.5 acre property for 40 years and is an avid plant collector with extensive collections of woody plants and perennials including more than 300 daylily cultivars and 250 varieties of hostas. She has been sharing her passion for gardening for more than 30 years, having spoken at the Boston, Rhode Island, and New England Spring Flower Shows, Art in Bloom at the Museum of Fine Arts, the Environmental Protection Agency, and garden clubs and organizations throughout the New England area.  Suzanne is past President of the New England Daylily Society, an Overseer for the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, Horticulture Chair for the Garden Club Federation, and works part-time at a local garden center.

    What's A Pomander?


    HOW TO MAKE ORANGE AND CLOVE POMANDER BALLS

            Take firm oranges and stud them with whole cloves. That’s it!

           You can also use a toothpick to make pre-made holes; this is helpful for children because the cloves can hurt their little hands (and ours).

             Be creative and arrange the cloves in diamonds, circles, or other patterns. As the orange dries, it will release a delicate, spicy fragrance.

        REGISTRATION NECESSARY SO WE KNOW HOW MUCH SUPPLIES WE NEED FOR THE POMANDERS
