Dear Friends,

It’s hard to believe that October has arrived, and with it a myriad of gardening chores as we get ready to “put our gardens to bed.”

Yesterday, the arborist and his team arrived to cull the dead wood from my weeping cherry, oak, and maples. I also had several spindly sassafras removed to enlarge the planting bed in my “Garden of High Hopes.” Thanks to many WAGC members, I now have some lovely ligularia, perennial begonias, and Japanese anemones to add to my garden. And to continue this spirit of sharing, if possible please bring a few of your perennials to share to our October meeting. (I will be bringing some iris if anyone would like some.)

Last Sunday, I did take a much- needed break from my house and gardening chores to walk the High Line, an elevated rail line in NYC, which has been transformed into a public park on Manhattan’s West Side. It is a one and a half mile stroll replete with lovely plantings, interesting artwork, and great people watching! Hopefully, all of you will have a chance to visit this site before winter sets in.

Looking forward to seeing you all at our October 8th meeting at the library. Our own Lauren Faustini will show us how to create a container planting and arrangement to celebrate fall and Halloween. Please bring a guest to share in the fun!
Fondly,
Eileen

P.S. Please remember that while you are out shopping for your own families, try to pick up something to donate to the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation Food Pantry, located in Midland Park. Thank you!

WAGC Sept meeting with NY-NJ Trail Conference.


Jennifer and Linda of the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference spoke at the Wyckoff Area Garden Club's September meeting 9/11/13. The history of the Trail Conference dates back to 1920 and it presently maintains more than 2,000 miles of public trails converging with 80 parks in our NY / NJ area. The work is primarily done through the donation of time from over 1,500 people who volunteer approximately 70,000 hours a year. In addition the Trail Conference monitors invasive plants that have the potential to take over these preserved lands.
