MEETING & TOUR: TUESDAY, APRIL 10, 2018, 9:30 AM

Greetings Gardeners,

Our April 10th Meeting will have a different format. We will begin at 9:30 AM and allow one hour to entertain and mull over all your ideas for fundraising since we will not have a rummage sale this year. The major portion of our funds go to scholarships, donations to the Weaverville Nature Park, beautifying the downtown beds and other local projects.

We will car-pool and depart from the Town Hall at 11:00 AM going 20 minutes North on 19/23 to Mountain Meadows Dwarf Conifer Nursery where owner, Michael Balough, will conduct a tour of his amazing Dwarf Conifer selections.

Kathleen Kasben, Co-Secretary

About Mountain Meadows Nursery:
Mountain Meadows Nursery has been operating for 30 years here in WNC. They specialize in unusual evergreens & dwarf conifers such as Hinoki Cypress, Cryptomeria, Spruce, Junipers, Pines, and so on. Their selection is constantly improving and they are now starting to carry a nice variety of dwarf and miniature hostas and perennials.

Their plant collection has come from arboretums, private collectors, and other purveyors of unique plants. They propagate the plants at their nursery and grow them (normally 5-10 years) until the time they are sold.​

Postponed Due to Weather: Join The Garden Club of Weaverville for Our March (Members Only) Walk at Pearson’s Falls & Glen

Postponed Due To Weather

On Tuesday morning, March 13, 2018, we are planning a spring wildflower tour to Pearson’s Falls & Glen. See below image for departure instructions.

This preserve is owned and maintained by the Garden Club of Tryon.

We’ll carpool to the site, which is near Saluda and about an hour drive from downtown Weaverville.

*Instructions*

Meet for carpooling at the Town-hall parking lot. We will depart promptly at 9 a.m.  Please arrive by 8:45 a.m.  We are scheduled to arrive at the falls around 10 a.m.

After the visit, we will enjoy lunch at West First restaurant in downtown Hendersonville. 

This tour is for members only and reservations are required

Please email Annick Flaxman (Annick@Flaxman.us) by March 12, 2018 at 5 p.m. if you are planning to attend, so she can effectively coordinate carpooling and reserve a table for lunch.

We’ll take an easy .6 mile paved path to the falls.

Each side of the walk, all the way to the falls, is covered with a wide array of spring ephemerals. We’ll also encounter a moss-covered rock outcrop which sustains wonderful water-loving plants.

This walk is delightful, and there will be a small entrance fee.

After our tour, we’ll drive to a nearby restaurant for lunch.

See www.pearsonsfalls.org/ for additional information about the preserve.
