CHECK OUT THE MOORE FARMS BOTANICAL GARDENS!

                                LAKE CITY, SOUTH CAROLINA

  • Attention Garden Enthusiasts! B.J. Barrett found this wonderful website that tells about the The Moore Farms Botanical Gardens which is owned by Darla Moore, the South Carolina Philanthropist who was recently inducted as a member of the Augusta National Country Club along with Condaleza Rice.
  • The information for the garden tour of the Moore Farms Botanical Garden can be found at moorefarmsbg.org. All guests must register in advance. The tickets are $10 each. It looks like it would be about a 2 ½ hour drive from Pinewild. What a wonderful opportunity! They are rarely open to the public and it will be a lot of fun to get a peek inside! Perhaps some of our members would like to get together and car pool for a great outing!
  • Tour requests are limited to groups of 10 people or more. Preference will be given to horticulture oriented groups such as garden clubs, landscape professionals and members of the local community.
  • They offer several open days per year during which the public can tour the gardens. The next Garden Open is scheduled for Friday, October 26th. If you’re interested in attending one of the Garden Opens, please register on their website.

WEYMOUTH CENTER REQUEST FOR PLANT DONATIONS

The annual Weymouth Center Dirt Gardeners Plant and White Elephant Sale will be held on Saturday, April 14, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., on the grounds of the Weymouth Center.

Donations of plants you no longer need will be very welcome.  As you are getting your garden ready for the coming spring, please consider donating some plants.

Just place the plants in plastic bags, making sure the roots are well covered with soil, identify the plants, and leave them on the potting table in the propagation area on either a Tuesday or a Friday morning.  If you need to deliver them on another day, please call either Louise Kamp at 603-4555 or Kathy Luckhaus at 986-3009 to make sure they are potted right away.  

To reach the propagation area, please come in the Vermont Avenue entrance, drive past the barn (on your right), bear left at the fork, and you will see the propagation area on your left.  You will also be able to see the greenhouse.
