The Plymouth Garden Club will hold their monthly meeting on Wednesday, March 13, at 1:00 pm, at the Chiltonville Congregational Church.  The principal speaker  will be Christie Dustman, a certified landscape designer and horticulturist.

Christie owned and operated a landscape design maintenance and installation company for over 24 years. She has received many awards for her designs and her personal garden has been showcased on national tours.  Christie will present “Conifers–Heroes of the Landscape”.  Conifers are a unique, versatile, and often misunderstood plant.

A traditional English tea will be served after the meeting.  Guests are welcome to attend for  $5.00 fee.


Many Volunteers worked hard on this year’s annual Greens Sale.  It was a success!


These are some of the creative designs by Plymouth Garden Club members at the annual Art in Bloom, held in the Plymouth Center for the Arts.
