The Garden Club extends warm welcome to our newest members, Kelly, Janet, and Jennifer!  We’re so glad you joined us.

Our very own illustrious master gardener Linda gives pointers to members about what to prune off these crepe myrtles: all tiny branches on the bottom 2-3′ of the trunks, all dead wood that is not leafing out, all tiny branches thinner than a pencil, any branches that are crossing or rubbing, any tiny branches growing into the interior of the tree that will eventually become crossing branches, and old seed pods from last summer’s flowers.  Katie shows we mean business!

Here is a diagram and more details on proper pruning of crepe mytles so you don’t get those awful stumps on yours.

You can see what we learned at our Weed ID workshop here.

Our members look over the lovely selection of choice perennials for our silent auction.  All these were dug from members’ own yards!  We had a lovely evening and a lot of fun.  We will have another silent auction at our May meeting — you’re invited to join us!
