Plant Exchange
The September meeting will also offer a Plant Exchange. Please plan to participate in this great opportunity to share excess garden gems with fellow members and to take home some new plants for your collection. 

Delphinium trophy competition reminder
The beautiful Frances Laird Jacob Trophy for best Delphinium was not awarded last year. If you have taken a picture of your Delphinium bloom this summer, please send it to Sally James or to me to enter the competition. The trophy will be awarded at the October AGC meeting this year.
