Kristen Begor and the rest of the diggers came yesterday and removed probably 50-60 plants, potted them, and then took them all home to water and maintain for the Garden Club sale, which will be in mid May!
The Garden Club is a group of gardeners, old, young, experienced, newbies...... and all in between. It is a place to learn and to pass on information, enjoy gardening with others you have that and other things in common with.
I used to be a Garden Club member perhaps 35 years ago, and loved it. Lately, in recent years, I have been contributing by donating plants to the Plant Sale in May.
We had already had Kim Young come in March to pull the ocean of bleeding hearts that fill my woods where I have thrown them over the years. She pulled them before they began to grow. Then, she took them home to break into little pieces, then place in a pot with dirt, water and wait for the sale. Bleeding Hearts are so fragile that they are impossible to pot when they are flowering in season.
Yesterday was a day to come and get all of the other things they wanted..... Coral Bells, Gold in a Basket, Vinca, Forget-Me-Nots, Spirea, Hollies, Japanese Maples, Vibernum, Lecothae, Climbing Hydrangea, and Rhododendruns.
Today, Kristen came back alone to pick up some white Astilbe and another plant we couldn't remember the name of. She wanted my help, so she wouldn't take the wrong plant. I love helping the Garden Club in Wilton.
