The January 27th Zoom Meeting
David Raines, owner of Rains Tree Care, provided a lot of good information by answering questions directly from Garden Club members or through the chat feature.
Tony LiCausi informed Club members about the proper way to plant a tree..."The hole should be wide not deep".
Veterans Wall of Honor
This just in from Penny Frahm.
The old flowers have been cleared out and pansies planted. Penny goes once a week to weed and clip. She says that this week the pansies were looking pretty nice considering the weather and the compact Nandina bushes are very red and really pretty this time of year. The silly daffodils were trying to pop up.

Daylily Sale - Huge Success
The Daylily Sale was an HUGH success. Customers were extremely pleased with the plants we offered and loved having time slots to shop. They also really liked having the opportunity to talk with our master gardeners about their own gardens.
We sold about 3/4 of our daylilies along with most of the trees and shrubs we offered. A big thank you to all the BVGC members who helped make this an extremely successful sale.
