Barbara Hargrove hosted the June 22 meeting of the Calla Lily Garden Club and delivered program, “Summer Gardening Tips.”

Hargrove’s “must do” list included help on watering, tips on annuals and perennials and weed control. Her “should do” list included how to feed, enrich the soil, staking for perennials, and dead-heading spent blooms on perennials.

Hargrove emphasized soil and its improvement are key to a good garden. She took questions and provided answers, and shared a “Gardners know all the dirt” water sprinkler mug with each club member.

Laura Alston-Dudley, president of the club, presided and Patricia Adams-Ellis offered the devotional from “Greedy Birds.”

The horticulture report from Willie Mae Hill included an encouragement to install a rain barrel in members’ gardens.

In the business portion of the meeting, the club discussed the 2013 Federation of Garden Clubs Convention.

The meeting was adjourned following a prayer, and a social hour and refreshments followed.
