Garden Club: Don’t plant flowers too soon

Staff report

The February meeting of the Richwood Garden Club was held at the Richwood village administration building on Tuesday, Feb. 7. The meeting was called to order by Marilyn Coleman.

The roll call was answered by revealing the ladies first love. Six members were present. The devotions were given by Coleman. Ruth Goedecke gave the treasurer’s report. Ruth Webb read the minutes.

Thank you for dropping off your house plants. We repotted 27 house plants for our 65th annual Mother’s Day plant sale to be held the Saturday before Mother’s Day in the empty lot next to the Richwood Gazette building from 9 a.m. to noon. The ladies voted to have a silent auction again.

Linda Forrider provided refreshments which were enjoyed by all. Coleman petitioned the village to provide plants indoors to beautify the administration offices. The village acquiesced. When you visit the administration offices enjoy watching the plants thrive in the sunny environment.

If you have anymore of your house plants that you would either want to donate or have repotted, drop them off at the village administration building.

Please don’t be tempted to plant flowers and vegetables outside now. The last frost of the season has not occurred. This beautiful weather has prompted friends to start getting ready for yard sale season. We have placed boxes for donations for Trees for Troops around town. As you get ready for your yard sales remember our troops. If you have Christmas decorations that don’t sell, donate the boxes. There are forms on the signs which tell you more about Trees for Troops project. The forms also give you information on how military families of active or retired military can petition for their own tree.

If you are interested in attending the Richwood Garden Club or want more information about projects, go to their Facebook page.
