National Gardening Week June 5 - 11, 2005

In celebration of National Gardening Week, sponsored by National Garden Clubs, Inc., the Acton Garden Club featured a display at the Acton Memorial Library lobby from June 6 – June 9 on the topic, “Gardening in Small Spaces”. The table was surrounded by a dozen planted containers in all sizes and shapes, showing the visitor examples of various plant combinations and ways to display them. Informational handouts with tips on container planting were made available. The Acton Garden Club’s Horticulture Study Group also hosted a workshop titled “Annuals - Part II” to give members the opportunity to bring their own container to be planted with a variety of annuals and companions such as herbs, grasses, summer bulbs, and small shrubs.
