August 2020 Newsletter


Note from the President- Our July Garden Tour at Pace Gardens was visited by a lot of our members as well as some other people from other garden clubs including NARGS, HPS, and a couple of other garden groups.  

Since we are still having to follow Covid-19 restrictions we are going to have the August Garden Tour following the same premise.  All attendees will have to wear a face mask while at the gardens, there will be no potluck, and please adhere to the social distancing guidelines.  Bottled water will be provided. 

The Tour will be at Barb Hunter’s home.  Directions will be given below in the next meeting heading.  Barb will have plants for sale and her gardens contain an extremely large collection of Hosta as well as other plants. 

We are still planning the Annual Plant Exchange although the venue had to be changed because of Covid-19.  Plans are to have the exchange at the home of Sandy Vukonich on September 10th, 2020. 

The success of the Plant Exchange depends on the quality and number of plants donated to the exchange.  High quality plants can be placed on the $5.00 table at the discretion of the donor of the plant.  Rules of the exchange are given below.

There are only a few weeks before our Annual Plant Exchange which is on September 10th.  If you have not already potted the plants you are planning to bring to the exchange, I suggest you do it as soon as possible to give the plant some time to adjust to a pot.  This meeting is always a blast and everybody leaves with new plants (sometimes many plants) to use in their own yard. 

There are a couple of things to remember about the Plant Exchange meeting; bring something to exchange, each membership (single, couple, or family) gets only one name in the drawing canister, look things over as the drawing is being held as we have to go fast to get finished before dark.  Also, please do not bring any invasive species such as Lily of the Valley, Houttuynia (Chameleon plant), Ostrich Ferns, Bishops Weed, Persicaria (Painter’s Palette), etc.  Suggestions of plants to bring are Hosta, companion plants, ornamental trees/shrubs, or garden related items such as bird houses, garden ornaments, watering wands, ornamental pots, etc.   *Please put a name label in each plant you bring to the exchange (It is nice know what a plant is when you plant it in your garden). 
The Plant Exchange drawing is decided by the number of meetings each membership has attended in the past year, starting with the Sept 2019 meeting and ending with the August 13, 2020 meeting.  The first set of names will be those that have attended all scheduled meetings since last year’s plant exchange.  Next will be those members that attended all but one of the scheduled meetings, and so on.  When your name is called you can choose a plant from the main group or you can choose a plant from the $5.00 table, give Cathy your name so she can keep track of your total, then pay Cathy at the end of the Exchange. 
We hope to see you at the August Garden Tour at Barb’s on August 13th.
Sincerely,
Glen Pace
EMHS President

July 2020 Newsletter

Note from the President- This is the first newsletter and plans for a meeting for EMHS since our February meeting because all activities for EMHS were cancelled due to the COVID-19 World Pandemic.  For our first summer gathering we are going to have an open garden tour at Pace Gardens in Clio.  There will be no formal meeting and no potluck, just a few hours to see each other, tour the gardens, and catch up on what has been going on in our lives and gardens.  We will ask for a volunteer to host the August meeting during the tour at Pace Gardens.  I will provide bottled water for the July gathering/tour so we can minimize contact.  Remember we will not have food at this meeting, please plan accordingly.  There will be a surprise from the club for every member in good standing that attends this EMHS event.  Directions and times are provided below in the heading “next meeting”. 

Cathy Hodgson and Gene Arms will be selling the remainder of the plants from the EMHS Annual Plant Sale at the July meeting.  If you did not preorder plants you may have an opportunity to buy them on July 9th.  For those few that did not pick-up your preorder from Cathy, she will have those orders at the meeting as well. 

With the lack of rain (here at Pace Gardens we have had less than one half of an inch in over a month) we are stringing hoses to try to make up for Mother Nature’s lack of moisture for our plants.  Hopefully some of you were blessed with the rains that totally missed us.  The spring freezes were hard on the martagon lilies and most of them are dwarfed and not going to bloom.  Some of those that did emerge are already going dormant from the lack of water.   Even most of my Trilliums are going dormant and some of the Polygonatums are already gone for the year.   The Hosta are doing okay and most have totally recovered from the freeze damage they received in April.  I will be leaving the hoses strung out when you come on the 9th so you will have to watch your step.

Those of you that have visited Pace Gardens know that there are benches scattered throughout the gardens so there will be some seating, but if you want to stay for a while you may want to bring your own chair.

I ask that everybody please adhere to the social distancing recommendations set by the CDC.  I also ask that everybody wear a mask to protect me as well as all other attendees.   My father has stage four cancer and I am his primary caregiver so he is very susceptible to anything and everything as are some of the members of our group.
  
I look forward to seeing you all on July 9th for our first gathering since February.
Sincerely,
Glen Pace
EMHS President

EMHS February 2020 Newsletter

Note from the President- Eastern Michigan Hosta Society is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year.  The very first meeting of EMHS was on May 11, 1995.   To commemorate our 25th year the EMHS Board voted to purchase a gift for each member so they can celebrate with us.   We will unveil the gift at the February 13th, 2020 meeting.  To receive your gift, you must be a member in good standing and you must attend the meeting so you can sign the register acknowledging that you received you gift.
  
Looking out the window today makes me think that maybe winter has arrived to Mid-Michigan.   We have been very fortunate this season as far as snow accumulation and temperature goes, but this weekend and the beginning of the week is proving that one can never guess what is going to happen when it comes to Michigan’s weather.   The single digit temperatures are hard on the vegetation that is not covered with snow because the dormant stems essentially freeze dry from the cold and winds.   Thank goodness we got several inches of snow before this cold snap arrived.  

The worry with our Hosta this time of year and even more-so before the ground was totally frozen is the voles that eat the crowns of the plants.   I had a clump of Hosta Komodo Dragon that had a base of over two feet in diameter that was totally killed by a family of voles working on it throughout the winter.   The next spring, I could find the clump, but there were no growth tips and the plant never did sprout and eventually the old roots just withered away.   If you have plants that were fine one fall and never sprouted the next spring you can rest assured that you have voles.   There are many control methods that can be searched on the internet to try to eradicate these pests from your gardens.

Don’t forget that you can pre-order your plants from the EMHS Annual Plant Sale at the February meeting.  The Fund-Raising Committee will have order blanks at the meeting and will have a display poster that describes each of this year‘s offerings.

To kick-off the 2020 season, Mark Hanner will be our speaker for the February meeting.   Mark has a cool greenhouse, lighted racks indoors, and numerous gardens all containing his collection of succulents so he has prepared a presentation on “Tender and Hardy Succulents for the Northern Gardener”.   This presentation will give a glimpse into the world of succulents that are available to us.    Even if you have never grown succulents in your garden you may find that there are some that will pique your interest in this unique family of plants. 

See you at the February 13th, 2020 meeting.

Sincerely,
Glen Pace
EMHS President

Hosting a Summer Meeting- We need volunteers to host our summer meetings.  I will have a sign-up sheet at the next meeting if you are willing to open your gardens to our group and host one of the summer member garden meetings. 

Hosta College 2020- is being held on March 20th & 21st in Piqua, OH.  I sent out the flier for Hosta College on January 20, 2020 so all members would have the most current information about this gathering of Hosta enthusiasts.   I have also posted the information on the EMHS blog.   At this event you will learn, buy plants, and have a great time with friends new and old. 

 At the Oct 2019 Board Meeting it was decided that EMHS would give away paid registrations (you will be responsible for your own transportation, lodging, and any additional class fees) for Hosta College 2020 on March 20 & 21, 2020. 

We also decided we would pay for email membership to MHS for EMHS members interested in joining MHS.   Please let Glen know if you are interested in becoming an email Member of MHS.   (This means you get an email newsletter, no snail mail)
