National Garden Clubs "Plant America" Grant

Brattleboro Floral Arts & Garden Club - Plant America Grant - Progress Update!!
Scott Farm - Stone Trust Feature Wall - Brattleboro Garden Club Vermont
This picture is of the completed wall, and a photoshopped picture of the NEW LOGO ... that is because later this summer, the logo will be updated!
So we are tweaking  the plant list a bit!  to accommodate the new Logo Colors!  LOL  Never a dull moment!

WEEK OF MAY 1st - May 7th, 2018
We have completed the HardScaping for the Plant America Project!!!
The Stone Trust constructed the Wall for the Scott Farm Perennial Garden.



WEEK of May 8th - May 14th, 2018
We received the soil test back from Vermont University Soil Testing - it's depleted in everything!  Imagine!
Mary reviewed the results and determined we needed 3 cubic yards of compost, 70 lbs of Lime, 5 lbs of bone meal and 15 lbs of Planttone 5.3.3
Jil purchased from Agway - got the club no tax price.  Jil ordered Compost from Reneau 802-257-0567
On Friday May 11th - Jil spread Lyme (pellets, because it was windy), notified Scott Farm compost would be delivered May 14, 15, or 16th.
      Reneau can work directly with Kelly Carlin 802-254-6868 of the Landmark Trust owners of the Scott Farm, to unload the compost.
May 14th - Mary will present to Brattleboro Garden Club a soil presentation using the Scott Farm's new Plant America Project soil test!

It will be a busy week - and the weeks in May getting the plants planted (that we currently have) and ordering the remainder (Still to early in Vermont to plant everything!!)
FYI:  Bulbs and some Shrubs will not be planted until the fall.
