Prince Albert Garden Club News

- Jeanette de Lange -

On 3 September, the Garden Club met at the home of Reinwald Dedekind on Jan Louw Street.

A lot of changes have taken place since the Garden Club’s last visit to Reinwald’s garden nearly two years ago. Fine gravel has replaced green lawn. There is also more container planting and a spectacular stone collection.
Obviously a lot of members wanted to know more about the stones – what, where, tell us about this – oh, look at that one. Reinwald, your stones stole all the attention.

And a gasp at the “Klapperbos” doing very well in Reinwald’s garden. Members admired the shade trees, cycads, aloes, succulents – they all vied to be noticed. Reinwald, we wait for your tree orchid to burst into colour and we’ll be back in a flash.
Please note:
The Garden Club’s November meeting is at Middelwater on Wednesday, 5 November.

We leave Prince Albert at 13h00 sharp, meeting in front of the Fransie Pienaar Museum – we’ll plan lifts.

Cost per person R15.00; non-members R25.00. Circle this date on your calendar – this is an outing not to be missed.
