IGC CHRISTMAS AT SHANNOPIN COUNTRY CLUB
October 23rd program "boss" Kate Coleville headed us to the Tree Pittsburgh greenhouse at 34 62nd street in upper Laweranceville. As you may recall Joe Davish, from Tree Pittsburgh, came to our May meeting and gave us a crash course in tree planting and pruning.
Time to bend over and close down the park. In fact the work has already begun. Digging up the annuals, trimming the perrenials and finishing up Oct 29th.
The smell of Autumn is in the air, the leaves are falling and our
gardens are producing their final display. Time to get outside and
enjoy the season! If you have the chance, now is a good time to divide
your perennials for the Plant Sale! Plant them in pots, label them and
then bury them in the ground. In the spring you will know exactly
what you have!
Kate hosted another successful outing, this time to Tree Pittsburgh. I
hope you were able to join her. It is amazing what an unwanted piece
of property and some ingenuity can produce!
We have been invited to share in Greybrooke’s Golden Anniversary
Celebration on Nov 13th. Be sure to let me or Greybrooke know you
plan to attend. They would like an RSVP by Nov 8th.
Share the Season,
From the President:
