Why Native Plants Are Important in Our Landscapes by Barbara Dorfman

Barbara is a landscape consultant. Her specialties are teaching homeowners and garden clubs how to handle their overgrown landscapes and eliminate exotic invasive plants. She is an active member of the Georgia Native Plant Society, which has sponsored several of her pruning seminars, and is passionate about promoting the use of native plants in home landscape.  Barbara will draw from Doug Tallamy's "Bringing Nature Home" to explain why homeowners have a crucial role to play in the survival of native birds, butterflies and other threatened wildlife. Her presentation will include photos of native plants to illustrate how to use them in a home landscape.

I Do Not Care for Roses, but I Have a Lot of Them in My Garden by Chris Woods

Chris is a consulting rosarian, a strong contender in the horticulture and arrangements contests at local, regional and national rose shows and a very lazy gardener. He has been growing great roses for about 50 years, but does not like pruning, spraying, fertilizing, watering, etc. So how? Because roses are far easier than most flowering shrubs to grow, if you know how.

May 2021 Meeting
Annual Luncheon

Wednesday, May 12th

The Dunwoody Garden Club May Luncheon was held at Vintage Pizzeria.  Kudos to Betty and her team for putting on a fantastic party!  Not only did we take home garden gloves and a special DGC stenciled candle holder, but most of us also took home our leftovers from the abundant lunch along with a big "Nothing Bundt Cake" for dessert. In addition, some lucky door prize winners took home lovely centerpiece plants.  Congratulations to Allison for being awarded Member of the Year; so well-deserved after this past year!

April 2021 Meeting
Member Garden Tour

Wednesday, April 14th

A great time was had by all!  It was so much fun to be ‘normal’ again, to socialize and to see some spectacular gardens.  Everyone worked very hard sprucing up their gardens.  It was a great incentive to ‘get 'er done’.  Everyone went home with new plants from the plant exchange and what was supposed to be a light lunch turned out to be an elegant luncheon!

March 2021 Meeting

Wednesday, March 10th

John Scarpucci from the North Georgia Camellia Society gave his presentation on the history of the camellias, types, as well as planting and caring for them.
