Honeysuckle Garden Club Seeks Members

March 30, 2013

The Honeysuckle Garden Club is looking for new members.

Members can learn about shrubs, trees, ferns, birds and butterflies, vegetables, daylilies, hydrangeas, cacti, making designs for the home, enjoy hands-on workshops, landscaping, take field trips, share plants, and have fun with new friends, according to organizers.

The Honeysuckle Garden Club co-sponsors the annual Community Clean-up in the Molino area on Earth Day (this year the event will be on April 20th). The group has a plant sale at the Emerald Coast Flower and Garden Festival held this year on April 5-6 on the Milton Campus of PSC.

The club is planting a Heritage Garden at the Barrineau Park Community Center (plants shared by the founding families of the area);  in addition, the group is planting trees in the community center’s playground and park.

Meetings are held on the fourth Sunday of each month at the Barrineau Park Community Center at 2 p.m. For more information, contact Ann Crawford at (850) 968-5645 or Tina Tuttle at (850) 587-2361.

    I had a nice Honeysuckle hedge at one time. I put some wire fence along my privacy fence and planted the Honeysuckle. The aroma when tey were in bloom was wonderful and best early in the mornings. The Humming Birds were fond of it also.
    Then I got new neighbors who bought the house next door who poisoned and killed my Honeysuckle hedge.
    I inquired of my neighbor why he did this and he explained that his wife had allergies too which he then said, “sorry”. So apparently I’m not allowed to have Honeysuckle on my property. Some neighborhoods would just be better without neighbors,lol. Just sayin’. :-)
    C’est la vie.
