Athens garden club celebrates 80th anniversary

Athens area.Special guests included Garden Club Council of Athens President Sally Allen and Azalea District of Georgia Club District Director Molly Kimler.The clubs officers attending were Diane Moore, Ina Hopkins, Louise Brockington and Connie McMillan.The club was organized in 1938 by 12 men and women, who were devoted to the cultivation of dahlias and roses, according to club history.As the 1950s approached, the club focused on flower arrangements, preserving flowers and controlling garden pests. The 1970s brought an increased awareness of conservation and ecology, and by the 1990s, the club expanded its focus on birds, orchids, water gardens and other environmental issues.The club has landscaped the YWCO, the Loran Smith Healing Garden, a butterfly garden at Timothy Road Elementary School and this year a duplex in Habitat for Humanity’s Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative.Also in 2017, eight members had their gardens certified as “Backyard Wildlife Habitats” by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.The Rose and Dahlia club and seven other area garden clubs donated funds recently for the purchase of trees to replace those in Oconee Hills Cemetery that were lost during Hurricane Irma.

Love and flowers; perfect match for Hill urban pioneer

Yet when it was time to go to college, she couldn’t wait to flee. She attended Muhlenberg College in Allentown, majoring in communications and comparative world literature. For nearly a decade afterwards she toiled as a writer in corporate jobs. “I dreamed of wearing high heels and suits for some reason,” she said.Then when the grind soured, she yearned to get her “hands in the dirt.” She began volunteering at the Weavers Way farm near Awbury Arboretum in Germantown. She became a ”farm groupie” who would rush home to work in the fields until the sun went down. She convinced Weavers Way farm staff to grow flowers and sell their yields at the Headhouse Farmers Market in Center City. She also dreamed of beginning her own flower farm and enrolled in a two-year program at Longwood Gardens to study “the science of flowers.”In 2009, the year she collected her first yield, she was hired to create flower bouquets and arrangements for her first wedding. By 2015, she was booking 40 to 50 weddings per season and was touted in Martha Stewart Weddings as among the nation’s top floral designers. Demand for her services grew, and at one point she contracted to handle 75 weddings per season but found that number stretched her seasonal staff of six too far.“That was too much to manage,” she said. “Now we focus more on quality than quantity.”For her wedding designs she uses only in-season flowers grown on her farm. You won’t find roses and gardenias, constants in wedding bouquets, in Love’s arrangements because they don’t grow well in Philadelphia’s humidity and heat. Her bouquets and centerpieces reflect what’s being harvested at the moment.Love writes joyfully about flowers on her website, penning lines like “I fall head over heels for each new bloom that comes into season in the fields” and “Floral design makes my heart sing. I dream about it at night.”By 2015, Love was booking 40 to 50 weddings per season and was touted in Martha Stewart Weddings as among the nation’s top floral designers. (This bride is holding one of Love’s bouquets.)But on this chilly gray March day at the farm, which is home to two stray felines named Leo and Tigre, Love gets most animated when she talks about succeeding at running a “profitable, sustainable” business and helping other women floral entrepreneurs to succeed. Profitability, she says, is at the root of running her farm; otherwise, it isn’t sustainable.“You have to go past the pretty thing and go for the practical thing to make money,” said Love, who is also the current vice president of the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers. “It’s a constant puzzle.”She eschews buying flowers that aren’t locally grown, comparing them to “strawberries in February.” She laments the ecological tax that the international flower industry imposes on local economies, what she calls “the sins of the global flower industry.” In a long blog post at LovenFreshFlowers.com, she points out that chemicals, water demands, low wages and shipping all place burdens on land and communities.“The international transit process also creates heaps of trash,” she writes on the blog. “The flowers for a single FTD bouquet c...

Bridges Gardening: A is for artichoke

They can also be grown from seed.By now, you’ve realized that artichokes may present a challenge for us in the North: a tender perennial that flowers in its second year. One solution would be to plant rooted suckers to get mature flowering plants in the first season. Alas, they are not available in Canada (I’ve looked). Fortunately, there are varieties that have been bred to flower in their first year from seedlings, such as ‘Imperial Star’ and ‘Northern Star.’ But you may be able to trick the more common ‘Green Globe’ into flowering in its first year (keep reading).Start seeds from mid-February to mid-March. (I realize that this article is a little late; no worries, you can often purchase seedlings from your local greenhouses.) Artichokes do not like to be transplanted, so sow the seeds one inch deep in four-inch pots filled with seedling mix. Keep them in a warm location — a heating mat set at 25°C is useful here. Germination is lowish, around 70 per cent, so get fresh seed and sow extras. Keep the potting media moist but never wet.When planting outdoors, you’ll have to break two gardening rules. First plant them out in early May, before the last frost. Second, plant the crown about one inch below the soil line. The first broken rule tricks the plants into thinking they’ve gone through a winter. The second broken rule protects the crown from damaging frost — leaves may look a little scorched, but new leaves will grow out of the crown. Plant them in full sun. Ensure soil is kept moist (not wet). To prevent drying out, apply a generous mulch layer.These are fast growers and heavy feeders: fertilize once a month with a balanced fertilizer. Pests may include alfalfa looper, cabbage looper and beet armyworm – easily dealt by squishing or insecticidal soaps.Think outside the veggie plot. Whether grown for food or flower, the artichoke has strong architectural value and can add drama and interest to your flower garden as a specimen plant. When growing in rows in the veggie garden, space plants three feet apart. If harvesting for the dinner table, young buds are more tender than older ones. Harvested buds can stay fresh for a couple of weeks in the fridge; cut them with a sharp knife leaving a 1-3 inch stem attached to the bud.Erl gardens in Saskatoon and recently started tweeting about it @ErlSv.This column is provided courtesy of the Saskatchewan Per...

Seedling starting 101 for home gardeners

But even in the sunniest of windows, seedlings are likely to become tall and leggy as they stretch up to find more sun.“I think the biggest challenges for home growers is to get a window with enough sun,” Bahner said. “Leggy plants can still do well, but I would not plant them without support.”That support could be as simple as tying small seedlings to a stake make of a pencil or a chopstick, and larger seedlings to a small stick or a tree branch. The support should be at least as tall or taller than the plant, Bahner said. It’s also possible to “beef up” stringy seedlings when they’re inside by making sure there is some light air circulation coming at them. Gardeners could do this with a fan put on a low setting that is not placed too close to the seedlings.“You don’t want them to flop over,” Bahner said.The right amount of water is also necessary for growing sturdy seedlings. Many people have a tendency to over water their plants, but that can be problematic, the farmer said, sharing some tips about how to strike the right balance. At first, misting or spraying the seedlings with water can be a great way to maintain the right soil moisture. But if you’re going to be gone all day, it may not leave the soil wet enough to make it through the day, and in that case a watering can with a shower-like spout will work fine.“You want the soil damp but not soaking,” Bahner said. “If you are not going to be home with them all day, water them well in the morning. Not at night, when it’s cool and dark, because that will promote fungal growth.”And in a few weeks, when your seedlings have taken off, it can be really tempt... (Bangor Daily News)
