An ex­otic day out

The Northland Age - - Local News -

Man­gonui Garden Club mem­bers en­joyed a day out last month, vis­it­ing the Ex­otic Garden and Mu­seum at To­tara North. After a leisurely stroll round the extensive gar­dens every­one crossed the road to the mu­seum be­fore ad­journ­ing to the Gum Store for lunch.

Mean­while $600 of the pro­ceeds from the club’s very suc­cess­ful sec­ond an­nual flower show in Fe­bru­ary is to be do­nated to the SPCA, Rid­ing for the Dis­abled and Donna Doolit­tle’s an­i­mal res­cue.

This month’s meet­ing fea­tured garden tips for au­tumn and what to plant in May, while the com­pe­ti­tions re­sulted as fol­lows.
