Gardening Group

CFUW Guelph Gardening Interest Group

Joyce Johnson, Convenor

CFUW Garden Group usually meets on the 3rd Monday evening of the month; exceptions to the date are made for holidays and special occasions.  Guest speakers provided presentations, and there were lively questions as many in the group have significant gardening experience. The presentation topics were “Handling 4-legged Garden Thieves”,  “Growing Orchids”, “Shrubs for  Guelph Soils and Climate”.

Our February meeting was the Guelph Master Gardeners’ Conference “A Day in the Garden”.  This was a welcome reprieve from winter, and we all won door prizes!  In November, we met to make Christmas wreaths – always a popular activity.  The next two meeting this year will be excursions – in May to a nursery and in June we will go on a garden tour.

Our relatively large group (26) is manageable as, at any given month,  some members will be absent due to travels or life complications.  We wish everyone a great summer of gardening whether your garden is on a balcony or a half acre!
