HAGUE — The Carillon Garden Club will host Dr. Leonard Perry, horticultural specialist from the University of Vermont, at its meeting Thursday, April 18, at Hague Community Center, Route 8 in Hague.
The club’s business meeting starts at 10 a.m. Members and guests are encouraged to arrive early for refreshments and beverages.
Perry will speak on “Perennials: New Introductions and Unused Favorites” at 11:30 a.m. Perennials are plants that come back year after year where annuals need to be planted each year.
“Perry’s program is a perennial favorite and updated regularly with new trial results,” said Betty Rettig, club president. “His talk illustrates and covers the basics of care for over five dozen perennials. Grouped by their main cultural requirements – light and moisture – these hardy (almost all to USDA zone 4 or lower) selections represent some of the newest available, a preview of what’s coming, and some perennials that deserve wider use.”
Hostesses for the meeting are Claire Best, Joyce Cooper and Barbara McLaughlin.
Members of the Carillon Garden Club will be seen soon cleaning up some of the gardens around Hague and Ticonderoga. Many annuals will be added later for summer color.
A plant sale is scheduled for May 18 at the First United Methodist Church in Ti and the club is also preparing for a flower show to be held in September.
For more information about the club, contact Cooper, first vice president, at 585-2640 or Rettig at 585-7247.
The public is welcome and new memberships are encouraged.
