The May meeting of the Garden Club of Elizabethtown featured a program “The Fruitful Vine” presented by Amy Aldenderfer, Hardin County extension agent. Aldenderfer provided information about varieties of grapes, which thrive in our region, the advantages and challenges of growing grapes and tips on care and pruning of grapes.
Following the program, the business meeting was conducted by president Deborah Weise. Clara Myers presented the 2011-12 club yearbook, with copies available for members after the meeting. Jana Gore reported that five gardens have been confirmed for the upcom-ing Garden Club of Elizabethtown Annual Tour and Tea on June 12 and that each garden is special and unique. Gore said tickets will be available the day of the event, but can also be purchased in advance at the Brown-Pusey House through Betty Long. Rene Bauer re-ported that the club will plant and weed the Cun-ningham Garden at the Brown-Pusey House next week, weather permitting. Helen Miller provided the horticulture update, speaking about perennials and annuals, their care and propagation and the enjoyment their beauty provides to us. Andrea McWright noted that 12 members traveled to Frankfort for the Floral Clock and Rose display, where they toured the gardens and Governor’s Mansion and met the floral designer for the mansion. Door Prize winners were Ann Kowalkoski, Ruth Cobbett and Pat Zyrd.
