The Garden Club of Elizabethtown learns about fairy gardens

-A A +A

On May 2, The Garden Club of Elizabethtown set its focus on creativity as members gathered to enjoy Linda Hancock’s presentation, “The Fun of Fairy Gardens.” Best described as whimsical miniature gardens, fairy gardens are a popular favorite among creative gardeners with an eye for detail.


Since these gardens are fundamentally comprised of plants and accessories, Hancock spent time discussing both. She stressed the importance of choosing plants that all have roughly the same watering requirements and then handed out a list of tried and true plants that have been known to thrive in a miniature setting. Accessories were another topic of conversation. Examples were given both of store-bought objects and those crafted from items found around the home.

Throughout the show and tell portion of the talk members and guests gained a new appreciation for the true complexity of these works of art.

The Garden Club of Elizabethtown, active since 1972, meets the first Thursday of each month in the historic Brown Pusey House in downtown Elizabethtown. Light refreshments are served at 9:30 a.m. with a program following at 10 a.m.

Members of the public are invited to attend. For more information call Danielle at 571-224-4726.
