Pasquaney Garden Club to Hold Spring Bulb Sale Fundraiser
  By NaNcy marchaND
During the remaining weeks of summer, while we are still en- joying lots of colorful flowers in our gardens, yards, and villages, it is an excellent time to plan for flowers that will bring early cheer next spring.
To participate in the PGC Spring Bulb Fundraiser, you can ORDER your bulbs ONLINE by September 7th for direct ship- ment to your home by the end of September. To order, please go to one of the following site: https://ThreeRiversFundrais-, or
ThreeRiversFundraising. com and use code XEPJR3 for
Pasquaney Garden Club›s order site.
Please Support Our Fundraiser
Enjoy your flowers: for best results, planting areas with spring bulbs should be planned and prepared in late summer and early autumn. Bulbs will flower best in areas that receive at least a few hours of sunshine daily and may rot in areas that are too wet. Most varieties of bulbs will do well either in prepared gardens or in grassy areas that may be mowed later in the season. It is best to
plant bulbs about six weeks before a ground-hardening frost, which means planting by mid-October in many areas of New Hampshire.
Three Rivers Fundraising offers a good variety of spring-blooming flowers, which will continue to bloom in future years. PGC will earn 50% of the sales. In addition, funds raised will be used to purchase some self- watering planter barrels and other gardening support products used by Pasquaney Garden Club for the public plantings.
Other Garden Club Notes--
Upcoming work times at the Butterfly Garden behind Minot Sleeper Library will be August 24th, and September 7th between 9 and 11 am. Visitors and volunteers are always welcome. Plans are in progress to repair and replace the damaged sections of fencing along the back of the garden. In the effort to continue to attract butterflies, birds, and other pollinators, several new plant species have been added, and more are to come.
Pasquaney Garden Club is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
