Celebrating the Black Swallowtail

Happy New Year with a New State Butterfly in NJ

All the hard work put in by GCNJ and Jeannie Geremia, particularly, has paid off.  The Black Swallowtail butterfly is now the OFFICIAL NJ state butterfly.    As some of you may remember, Jeannie was a program speaker in Oct. 2013 and brought her contagious enthusiasm for this project with her.  Be sure to keep parsley and fennel growing in your gardens to help nurture these great pollinators.

Presentation on Fall Perennials October 20

Presentation on Fall Perennials October 20

 

September 2015 – The Navesink Garden Club has invited Anne Haines, owner of Deer Country Gardens, Millstone Township, to give a presentation on fall-blooming and deer-resistant perennials on Tuesday, October 20 at 1:00 pm at The Atrium, 40 Riverside Avenue, Red Bank.

The public is invited to attend free of charge.

Haines’s program is titled “Fall-blooming (and Deer-resistant) Perennials: Beyond Chrysanthemums.” There are many perennials that can bring new life to summer-weary gardens more than “mums.” Haines will give you ideas for adding color and interest to the deer-resistant garden in the fall, from asters and bugbane to plumbago and turtleheads. Deer Country Gardens specializes in deer-resistant plants.

The Navesink Garden Club is a member of The Garden Club of New Jersey, Inc. and the Central Atlantic Region of National Garden Clubs, Inc. Members come from Atlantic Highlands, Colts Neck, Eatontown, Elberon, Highlands, Holmdel, Leonardo, Lincroft, Little Silver, Marlboro, Middletown, Neptune,  Ocean, Rumson, Shrewsbury, Tinton Falls, and Red Bank in New Jersey, and New York City.  For more information about the Navesink Garden Club and programs, contact the Membership Chair, Kathleen Panepinto,kpanepinto@comcast.net. Join our website to receive notices of new postings by adding your email address on the lower right of the page.

Happy Fall, and a Little Stumble

hi followers – good to see so many Navesink Garden Club members are viewing posts as they happen! It warms your webmaster’s heart and you are all thought of well.

Occasionally, a glitch happens and you may have received an email with an erroneous title/URL. Not to worry. Your webmaster is not master of all technology in the universe. Only of a few marigolds and now rotten tomatoes.

So, don’t throw your own rotten tomatoes! Life, like our gardens, is a work in progress. I own up to my mistakes, and hopefully you will continue to trust my postings, and let me know what you think, as I bumble(!) along on the digital highway.
