Open gardens and plant exchange
Members of the Lake George Community Garden Club will be gathering Wednesday, June 8 at a member's house to take a tour of an exemplary home garden, share planting tips and socialize - and the public is invited to participate.
To be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., the gathering is to occur at 748 Ridge Road in Queensbury. Plans call for refreshments to be offered, as well as master gardeners to be on hand to provide advice. New gardeners will receive a plant to take home - while supplies last. For directions or details, see: www.lakegeorgecommunitygardenclub.org
New garden venture
Adirondack Native Plant and Herb, a nursery run by the Riordan family, is now in its first full year of operation.
Located at 264 Diamond Point Road, the enterprise is run by the Brendan and Dawn Riordan, and it's truly a family affair. In early April you'll find mom, dad, and their three children planting herb and vegetable seeds in the greenhouse.
The Riordans sell their young plants to gardeners in May and early June, then offer field produce beginning in late June.
Everything is naturally grown with no chemical pesticides, they pledge. Stop by for good prices and the widest variety of herb and vegetable plants in the area. The farm stand is closed on Sundays.
