Moriches Bay Garden Club

Plant those perennials


Our meeting last month at Landcraft Garden Foundation in Mattituck was a great success; we were treated to a guided tour.

This garden of approximately four acres recently opened to the public includes lush perennial and mixed borders, container plantings that are changed seasonally. 

There are rose gardens and tropical gardens and much more.  Also, last month Eileen DiRico and Rita Sepenoski represented MBGC at the Judges Symposium at St. Peter’s in Bay Shore.  Eileen submitted a tubular design and an armature design.

This month we are participating in the annual Second District luncheon which is Nov. 15. You can reserve a spot by calling Diane (631-325-1828).   

The luncheon is at Captain Bill’s in Bay Shore; for $50 you will be treated to a luscious lunch, lavish basket raffles, home-baked goods (MBGC is participating with this), individual club designs and vendor shopping.

Meanwhile back in the garden, as we come to the end of the hands-on gardening season, it is a good time to reflect on any changes you might want to make next year.  Local nurseries are having sales on perennials now and you still have time to plant.  The MBGC always likes to promote native plants, so ask about them. 

We are not quite at the end of the pumpkin-picking season yet, so take a minute to check out what I did with my pumpkin.
