We had an­other in­ter­est­ing night at the Gal­ston Gar­den Club in May and it was lovely to see so many peo­ple turn­ing up so reg­u­larly to the meet­ings. We are a lively, friendly club with peo­ple will­ing to share their gar­den­ing knowl­edge, their highs as well as their lows. Great tips are shared to help you with grow­ing plants, iden­ti­fy­ing weeds, and know­ing what that un­usual plant in your gar­den is. It is a great way to en­joy the com­pany and friend­ship of peo­ple who have a love of gar­den­ing whether on acres or a smaller block. Gar­den Club meets on the 2nd Weds of the month at the Gal­ston Com­mu­nity Cen­tre 37 Ar­ca­dia Rd., Gal­ston 8.00pm, new mem­bers are warmly wel­comed.

Our guest speaker for May was Roslyn French who grows Proteas com­mer­cially. Many of you will have seen or bought one of her beautiful bou­quets at the stall on the cor­ner of Old North­ern Rd and Wylds Rd Ar­ca­dia. Roslyn spoke on the prop­a­ga­tion, care and unique­ness of proteas. We all learnt not to pam­per these hardy drought tol­er­ant plants which as cut flow­ers last an ex­tended pe­riod.
