Patriot Daylily Society

Saturday, March 2, 2019,
12:30 to 3:30 pm

Bedford Library Meeting Room

 

   “Gardening is Murder”

with Neal Sanders

 

Author and gardener Neal Sanders will describe to us what really goes on when we set about to plant a shrub, tree, daylily or harvest a vegetable. Neal readily acknowledges his responsibilities in his own garden are limited to digging holes and moving rocks at his wife’s direction. However, he has had years to observe other gardeners and their foibles, and he weaves those observations into a lecture that is rich in humor, but also dead-on accurate in describing what really goes on when we decide on planting any type of garden.

 

Directly after Nealʼs talk and a short break, George Doorakian, Patriot Daylily Society’s Vice President and AHS Stout Medal-winning hybridizer, will give a short presentation with photos of his newest daylily seedlings, including probable future introductions.

 

A potluck light lunch will be provided, contributions of food to share with others will be greatly appreciated.
