Ingomar Garden Club Annual Plant Sale. May 11th 8am till 2pm Corner of Ingomar Road and Route 19
Hanging Baskets Perennials Vegetables Crafts
The sale isn't untill May 11th, BUT the perennials need to be dug up divided and potted by April 1st. So members start planning now what to bring, collecting pots and planting material. The first "Diggums Workshop" project is April 1st. at Mike Barns Inc. Goodyear Warehouse, ( the finest place to buy tires. ) The second workshop is April 8th. Ample time to bring seedlings started by the members. I'm told some exotic tomatoes for the connoisseurs, along with milkweed for the Monarch butterfly lovers, will be in the mix.
As this is the clubs major fundraiser Crafts are being added as a feature. Here are a few examples. a hand crocheted scraper from sparkle yarn, about 4 inches wide and as tough as nails.
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

Edie Joseph designed the centerpiece for the luncheonGary Gelder, President of the Orchid Society of Western Pennsylvanis enlightened the group on potting media, watering, fertilizing, lighting, correct humidity and last and probably the most valuable information, those orchids that are easiest to grow.
Or the District IX annual meeting is April 2. Also think Trash to Treasure contest. The theme this year is Seasons in Bloom.
Remember no freash material. The arrangement consists of repurposed, recycled, any sort of dried material just so it isn't alive.
Remember to send in $23. for the reservation by March 20th Besides a delicious lunch Dave Orster is the guest speaker.
Welcome to the Springfield Grill
So it was a rainey day however the fellowship and the food was fair compensation. Linda Womsley, our president enjoyed talking "with" rather than talking "to" the members. No repots, no committes, no plant sales. Please check "Garden Articles"
in the upper left column. Irene Rudy has recommendations for seed purchases.
From the President: Happy May,
I hope everyone has found some time to be outside in their gardens! The
weather has been so beautiful, that I didn’t even mind the thunderstorm this
past weekend! While you were in your garden did you dig a plant or two for
the Plant Sale? Thank you to everyone who assisted Irene and the Plant Sale
committee at the Diggum events.
I have heard that our club was mentioned a few times during the awards
presentation at the GCFP Convention. You will find out all about it at our
May meeting. Thank you to Rita Mack who represented Ingomar GC at the
