Lismore Garden Club News

Wow, what a huge success the 2006 City of Lismore and District Garden Competition has turned out to be. Im afraid some of us that were intensely involved will be suffering withdrawals for a while. Ah well, heres to an even bigger and better garden comp next year. Thanks must go to The Echo for the excellent story on page two last week, as it really helped to promote the Lismore Garden Club members gardens that were open to the public for four days. Thanks must go also to you, the home gardeners and avid readers of The Echo, who flocked to see the best gardens that Lismore and district has to offer. By the many comments that have filtered through, I know that you were suitably impressed by the high standards of the gardens. Thanks must go also to our wonderful sponsors, without which the competition just would not happen. And finally thanks to all the Lismore Garden Club members who prepared their gardens for the four or five months before the competition, and to those who did all of the organising to make things happen.

Dont forget the clubs September outing, which is a morning tea and garden walk next Thursday, September 21, in the prize winning garden of Ray and Fay Hanlon at 7 Jade Avenue, Goonellabah, at 9.30am. Visitors are most welcome. Bring a plate of morning tea goodies.

Finally: And God said, Behold I have given you every plant yielding seed which is upon the face of all earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit, you shall have them for food. Genesis 1:29

Happy gardening
