Olde Ripton Garden Club meeting Nov. 6

The Olde Ripton Garden Club has arranged for a program on interior gardening and houseplants on Monday, Nov. 6.

Marie Lipski of Southington will present a program entitled “Interior Gardens”. She will discuss topics such as pests, potting soil, and propagation. There will be talk about bringing in tender green friends, pathogens, lighting, watering, fertilizers, and how this can change with each season. Frost need not stop your gardening, you can embrace your inner green spirit year-round! Houseplants carry our gardening interests thru the cold months – year after year, our plants seem like familiar friends.

Marie is a certified advanced master gardener, certified master naturalist, and master conservationist. The Olde Ripton Garden Club will present Ms. Lipski at its Monday, Nov. 6 meeting.

Her program, “Interior Gardens,” is open to the public and will be held at Plumb Memorial Library at 10 a.m. in the Community Room (downstairs), 65 Wooster Street, Shelton.
