Peachester Garden Club heads to Buderim for Friendship Day

Contributed by Patricia Bradford

The May meeting saw many members travel to Buderim to celebrate their Friendship day.
After checking out the plant stall and morning tea, Tom Hill opened proceedings with a warm welcome to all, including representatives from other local garden clubs.
Phil Adams, president of the QCGC (Qld Council of Garden Clubs) was introduced and explained a little about the organisation. He mentioned the difficulties some Clubs are having attracting people to take on office positions. Also, some future events coming up.
Welcomed guest speaker Jillian Coomb from Searles gave an entertaining talk about the ins and outs of growing indoor potted plants successfully. She showed off a selection of samples of various products manufactured by Searles and explained the type and timing of fertilisers for different plants, products to control pests and diseases and using them safely and correctly. The samples were donated for raffle prizes.
Local councillor Ted Hungerford was called on to draw the raffles.
The day finished with a delicious lunch.
A few of our members went for a wander through the beautiful Buderim Village park.
Next meeting will be on Thursday, 15th June, 9.30am in the garden of Jeff and Rob. Please bring along a mug, chair and small plate to share for morning tea.
Visitors and new members always welcome.
