DELTA INFORMAL GARDENERS (DIG)

President's Message | september 2016

Plant Something


Hope you’re enjoying your gardens as summer winds down. I love fall with its cooler crisp evenings, nights and mornings. It’s a great time to get out in the garden and catch up on work . It’s also a great time to plant as the soil is still warm and the coming winter rains will help establish root systems. As we’ve learned, plant your native plants now. Plant a tree or shrub or some bulbs. Throw out some wildflower seeds or poppy seeds. For fall color I love the oranges, reds and golds of chrysanthemums. Pansies are also a colorful addition and can last all winter. Fall also brings the Michaelmas daisy full of blue,lavender and rose color. One of my favorite fall bloomers is Cape Honeysuckle with its trumpet-like flowers of bright orange-red. It’s an easy plant to grow and the hummingbirds love it.

Be sure to join us for propagation on Saturdays. Look for time and locations in the Weeder. I look forward to seeing you there.

Come hear Terry’s unique perspective on stunning tricks to make any size yard a paradise. He will discuss tried and true techniques to help you create a magical, amazing, and enjoyable experience in your garden—not only with beautiful landscaping but recommendations for unique smells, sounds, and colors.

Terry is a California Certified Nurseryman. As a young man, he started at Norman’s Nursery in old town Brentwood, where he developed his knowledge and love of plants and landscaping. For Terry, walking through a nursery was absolutely addictive. He developed this passion into his landscaping business. Retired after 40 years, he’s still available for consultations, planning, and recommendations.

This is one speaker you won’t want to miss! Come prepared for an entertaining, informative evening and bring your questions.
