Rehoboth Garden Club February News

Posted

We are very happy to announce that Sydney Hussey has been chosen as the recipient of the Rehoboth Garden Club’s 2021 Pat Knowles Memorial Scholarship. Sydney is a Swansea resident and a graduate of Bristol Agricultural High School. She earned an associate’s degree in floral design from Bristol Community College. She currently is a junior at the University of Massachusetts Amherst where she is majoring in horticulture and floral design.

Our Garden Club annually awards a $2,000 scholarship to a local student. Scholarship Committee Chair Barbara Beals, and Committee Member Mary Louise Pacheco presented the award to Sydney in December. We wish her success in her studies.

“Tips and Tools” is the topic of our next meeting. Members will share their gardening experiences, new tools, and new ideas. There will be a seed swap as well. Join us on Monday, February 7, 2022, at 10 AM in Goff Hall, 124 Bay State Road, Rehoboth.

Gardeners’ Tip
Examine your houseplants carefully for indoor pests, including mealybugs, scale and spider mites. Tiny webs are a sure sign of trouble! These creatures thrive in the dry winter atmosphere of your home. Gently wash the stems as well as the tops and bottoms of all leaves of infected plants. These pests can then be controlled with an insecticidal soap.
