Every gardener knows about transplanting.  Moving from one place to another.  During this time of uncertainty we are moving our operations from the meeting hall to our website.  You can still look forward to flower designs, information on horticulture, birds, butterflies, notifications on enviromental projects and civic improvement.  Our members will be sharing their pet projects through photos and pearls of wisdom.  

  Work at home---Works for us.

Baby "seed" babies grow from spider plants and succulents by Tess for the IGC Plant Sale may be up for adoption.

Alas the sale has been cancelled but you better believe she will find a loving home for them. 

Chris and Barb did "Succulents in the Library."

Chris and Barb attended a Succulent Workshop in the Shaler Library sponsored by the Shaler Garden Club.  The container and material was provided and as you can see the result revealed their own creative humour.  The fairies in the garden were their idea.  We expect a report in August on how they turned out.

What are "DIGGUMS ?

03/03/2020 22:07

D-I-G-G-U-M-S  =  Plants that can be dug. divided, and dumped into a flower pot where they grow and can be sold 8 weeks later at the plant sale. 

                          ( Netting us a profit of 100% )


The Ingomar Plant Sale is May 9th, 8am till 2pm, corner of Ingomar Road and Perry Highway.  The plants are priceless because many of the varieties started in grandma's garden.  However the price is right. Check with us before you head for the store.     

  The hanging baskets from Schnor's Greenhouse, 175 Schnur Road, Butler, PA have always been a show stopper.  AS we will not be doing the sale this year we hope you will plan to visit their business and support them during this diffucult time .

Update from the IGC President

03/20/2020 21:19
Linda Womsley
Hello Gardeners!
I have just arrived back from a work then vacation trip and am happy to report that my garden appears ready to POP! There have been many years at this time when I've thought digums' ??? This year I have all kinds of options. 
So, as you may have heard, there is a virus out there that spreads easily - especially when there are groups of people together. As part of the effort to stay safe and limit the spread of the virus we will curtail our activities for the month of April and May. 
This means: 
There will be NO April Meeting.
There will be NO Diggums workshops.
There will be NO plant sale the Saturday before Mothers Day. (unless something drastic changes- which is doubtful) See below for more. 
Jessie is checking with Wexford House on Horti-therapy - but assume that we will NOT be doing Horti-therapy in May.
We believe that Jesteads is still open. We will NOT be doing a group trip.
Plant Sale:
We would like everyone to dig and plant their own diggums. If you need dirt and/or pots let me know and we will do a drop off supplies. Once you know what your diggums are let Janet Eck know. 
If you have a craft item you can do at home, please do. 
We will most likely be too late to sell annuals. (We would like to suggest the everyone buy their annuals from Schnor's to help support their loss of income)
Other Cancellations: Just in: NO GCFP convention - email to follow. Also the National Garden Club has cancelled theirs as well. 
Let me know if you have ANY questions or Concerns - or just want to talk.
