Garden Club to Hold Small Standard Flower Show
Red Bank – The Navesink Garden Club is staging a small standard flower show titled “Color Harmonies” on September 15  from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm.
The show will be held at The Atrium at 40 Riverside Avenue, Red Bank. The meeting and flower show is open to the general public and is free of charge.
This club has held a horticulture show every year since its inception in 1947. The members enter and display the best examples of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers grown in their gardens over the summer. It has been a colorful and abundant exhibit in the past and promises to be an exciting one this year with the addition of the designs.
With titles such as “Moments in Time,” “Follow the Sun,” “A Day in the Garden,” “Herbal Delights,” “Green Thumbs,” and “A Country Garden,” in the horticulture division (eligible for best-in-show award) and “Razzle Dazzle,” “Graceful Rhythm,” “Jazz it Up,” and “Some Like it Hot,” in the design division (also eligible for a best-in-show award) a bountiful and colorful show is assured. Members have garnered blue ribbons in local and state competitions.
In May, the Red Bank River Center Association donated seedling potatoes (Yellow Finn, All Blue, Red Norland, German Butterball, and Fingerlings) to 16 gardeners who will participate in the Potato Challenge at the show.
Entries are accepted from 9:30 am – 10:15 am, and judging begins at 10:30 am.
The Navesink Garden Club is inviting people interested in horticulture and design to join the club. Meet everyone and learn what other interesting projects the club will be doing. Come to one or more of the monthly meetings held the third Tuesday of the month at The Atrium, located at 40 Riverside Avenue in Red Bank, in September, October, November, January, March, April, and May from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm.
