Spring 2018 HPI

After a series of delays related to adjusting to the new pdf format, the Spring 2018 HPI was distributed to members by email on June 20th. The Fall 2018 issue should be easier! If you are a member and did not receive the email with the Spring 2018 HPI link, please contact Charlie.

Note that the pdf format page size is twice that of the printed journal, so the content in the 26 page pdf issue is actually greater than the previous 40 pages.

Summer Social Sunday August 26

The diffident weather did not deter over 40 members from attending a most enjoyable afternoon in Pamela Murphy's exotic East Vancouver garden. The garden was immaculate and the food excellent but it was Pam's organizational abilities, rare in our society, that created the show stoppers. Not only was there was a comprehensive slide presentation detailing her exotic garden plants, but an unusual "cat finding" activity that got attendees out of their chairs and into her garden to find exotics (and cats) in unexpected nooks and crannies.

A big thank you to Pam and Jim for hosting, and to the many volunteers who helped with set up and clean up. There will be a more detailed report on the event in the next HPI.

Targeted Fall Garden Tour?

We are still contemplating a water feature tour, probably in VanDusen Gardens since it has many excellent water features. If it does occur it will likely be in October. Members will receive an email with details once the tour is confirmed.

General Meeting Monday September 24

Egan Davis will be our speaker. Member may recall his excellent presentation on container gardening at last September's GM. We are unsure of his topic at this time but will post it once it's confirmed.

Advance Notice Dates (More details and events will be posted when available)

Annual General Meeting Monday November 26
