LIB Master Gardner Presentation by Sue Sandmeyer and Linda Rancourt

Sue Sandmeyer and Linda Rancourt delivered a lively and informative Master Gardener Program overview at the September LIB General Meeting.  “The Master Gardener program, typically offered through universities in the United States and Canada, provides intensive horticultural training to individuals who then volunteer as Master Gardeners in their communities by giving lectures, creating gardens, conducting research, and many other projects.  The Master Gardner Program is a source for some of the best, regionally specific advice you can get on home gardening.”  To view Sue and Linda’s presentation, click on the image below!

Beauty Spot Awardee Cecelia Cardano

When describing her garden’s progress, Cecelia says it’s certainly been a process of trial and error, learning what is most hardy and works best in the hot summer sun here in Lewes.  I love vibrant colors of all kinds and plant a mixture of annuals and perennials to provide just that. I love the usuals such as Black-Eyed Susan’s, Cone Flowers, Lantana, Portulaca, and Mini Zinnia’s to name a few.
