On Tuesday, June 5, the Cottage Grove Garden Club welcomes Faye Forhan, who will talk about Constructing and Caring for Container Water Gardens. Faye is the past president of the Oregon Koi and Water Garden Society, the owner of two koi ponds and several water gardens, and a member of the Garden Club. Faye will demonstrate how to construct and care for a free-standing, pot-sized water garden, including how to pick the right container, how to select a pump, and the types of plants that work in our climate. Faye will also discuss potting material, dealing with mosquitoes, and water garden ornaments.
This program will be good for people interested in water gardening but who don't know where to start, or those who already have a water garden and are looking for tips and tricks. Plus, the Garden Club will be raffling off the water garden that Faye creates as well as other water-garden goodies.
Garden Club meets at the First Presbyterian Church (on the corner of 3rd and Adams). Our business meeting begins at 6pm and Faye's presentation will begin at 7pm. All guests and visitors invited!
Please join us for our last formal presentation before the summer break.
