Master Gardeners Visit


June 6, at 6:00pm, my friend and her husband hosted a garden tour for the local master gardeners at their home. About 21 Lawrenceburg Master Gardeners attended to tour the property and have dinner. Though we had the threat of rain, it all cleared up in time.

Before starting our tour, my friend introduced Eric and I and told them how we moved from California to Loretto. She talked about how we started a garden and put up a greenhouse. She said that I would like to become a master gardener.

In touring the gardens, most of the plants were marked by name. In the front of the house along a picket fence, were a variety of flowers on one side and knock out roses on the other. On the side of the home was a beautiful hosta garden. In the very back were fresh herbs and a kitchen garden. Among the kitchen garden were fresh garlic, parsley, sugar snap peas and cauliflower to name a few. There were planter beds with flowers and shrubs edged with rocks and a beautiful coi pond. In a field out in front of their home they had planted corn, tomatoes and soybeans . (However, they weren’t doing too well this season.)

As we toured the property, we talked to a few of the master gardeners. They invited Eric and I to come to a master gardener conference in Jackson, Tennessee. They said it’s an all day event with lots of good speakers as well as a place to buy plants.

I gave one of the girls my contact information and she sent me all the master gardener meetings for the rest of the year and asked us to come as their guests. The master gardener training doesn’t take place until January. In the meantime, I can learn more about their program and be able to network with the Lawrence Country group until I become certified.
