Just to catch up with what’s happening in August – We’re visiting the Geelong Botanical Gardens on Sun 13th to view the Salvia collection.
Our oldest member Bill Whitehead 101yrs donated his Salvia collection to the Geelong Bot Gardens many years ago and since then, many more Salvias have been donated, which make up quite an extensive collection.
All welcome to join us on the day.
We have a Salvia garden to visit in Modella near Longwarry, in East Gippsland Sun 27th – full of interesting Salvias and other garden plants.
10th September sees us hosting our Subscribers Lunch, to say thankyou to all those who have subscribed and joined the Group. A delicious lunch, tea & coffee will be found under the oaks at our Display Garden in Nobelius Heritage Park at Emerald .
Then the next weekend, Sun 17th , we will be demonstrating how to prune the various forms of Salvias and of course there will be lots of cuttings to be taken home.
October is a big month for us with the Garden Lovers Fair at Bolobek being held on the weekend of 7th & 8th Oct and later in the month
the Botanic and Rare Plant Fair, on 21st & 22nd Oct, held at the Botanic gardens. if that wasn’t enough, also on that same weekend we are selling Salvias at the Morning Star estate as part of their 5 open gardens in and around Mt Eliza.
Last but not least for October is the Ivanhoe Fiesta at the Community Centre in Ivanhoe on Sat 29th – a great little affair with the whole community getting involved, a community veg and flower garden, us selling Salvias and so much more!
So we have a full diary coming up. I hope you’ll come and join us at some of these events.
