Meeting: April 11, 2010, Sunday: 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm, Missouri Room,  Missouri Botanical Garden

At this meeting we will finalize our plans for the plant sale, May 22, 2010 at Missouri Botanical Garden.

We will also be discussing our upcoming field trip to Cottage Gardens April 24, 2010 in Piasa, IL. Many members have been to Cottage Gardens in the past.  It always proves to be a fun time. The owner, Chris Kelly and her husband Bill have a fantastic selection of beautiful and unusual plants. They have something unique and interesting for everyone!

As always, refreshments, door prizes and new members are welcome at our meetings.

Spring has finally arrived! Watch for all the new signs of life in your garden.


We had a cool day, ordered by Dorie, and had a fantastic time. We shopped at Cottage Gardens, 2 other nurseries, had lunch, and then visited Iron Works ‘N More. The rented van was packed with members and we had a couple of extra drivers. It was a terrific turnout! Everyone came home with several plants, pots, iron, and was well fed. A special thanks to everyone who drove.

Plant Dig: April 8, 2010, Thursday, 8:30 am. We will meet at Stephanie’s.  Bring your garden gloves,shovel and any extra pots you have.


A small group of hort members went to Stephanie’s home and dug up many beautiful plants from her yard for the Plant Sale in May.  The weather was cool but cooperative, great for digging!  We all enjoyed the delicious snacks and water from Stephanie. A special thanks to Stephanie for letting us come to her home and to everyone who chipped in with their time and help. I think our Plant Sale is off to a good start!
