Hammond Buck, owner of the Plants Unlimited nursery in Rockport, will talk to the Camden Garden Club on Thursday, September 25th, as he leads them through his own gardens in South Thomaston. His topic “A first-hand look at ornamental grasses,” is a continuation of his program at the garden club’s Winter Horticulture Series in February, where he discussed the more than 100 types of ornamental grasses he grows in his experimental garden, their uses and their idiosyncrasies. His photographs were beautiful – especially in mid-winter – but seeing the grasses growing in peak season promises to be even better.
The garden club’s general business meeting will be held first, at The Congregational Church on Elm Street in Camden. Refreshments and conversation are at 9:00 a.m., then the meeting at 9:30, after which the members will pile into cars to caravan to Buck’s garden. Afterward, some will probably go out to lunch.
The public is invited to both meeting and tour. The Camden Garden Club is a member of the Garden Club Federation of Maine and National Garden Clubs, Inc. and has as its mission bringing horticulture education to the community, enhancing public spaces, and protecting and conserving natural resources.
