Focus on Ferns at May Garden Club Meeting
Although many residents may consider Ramona a “dry” county, at least as far as plants are concerned, the Ramona Garden Club’s May meeting will feature ferns.
Staghorn ferns in particular will be the topic of the May 8, 2013 meeting, presented by Don Collard. Collard became interested in tropical plants more than 45 years ago, and has collected his plants from places such as Thailand, the Philippines, Costa Rica and more. He is past president of the San Diego Fern Society and longtime member of the Los Angeles Fern Society. His talk will cover fern species that will grow in Ramona, as well as fertilizers and pest control. He will also bring sample plants.
Many thanks to our wonderful members for signing up to provide a vase of flowers or a potted plant to brighten up the Ramona Library. Anyone interested in signing up please contact Jane Vidal The flowers and plants are well received from both the visitors and staff alike! You may retrieve your item after your week has passed.
Pennies for Pines
Each month the garden club takes a special collection for the National Forest Penny Pines Program. For $68.00, approximately 350 cedar, fir, oak, redwood, pine trees will be planted on approximately one acre. This amount not only includes the seedlings but the clearing and preparation.
