Don’t Give Up, There’s Hope

Sherin Kyte

Do you dream of having sweet smelling roses, citrus trees loaded with juicy fruit, a colorful variety of flowers and bulbs, fresh strawberries and blueberries ready for picking, heirloom tomatoes and your favorite veggies at your fingertips? What about a lovely Japanese maple with pink impatiens cascading under its canopy?

You may think that has to be a dream because you live in Lake Wildwood with rocky clay soil, your house is built on a steep slope or on a small lot with no area suitable for a garden, hungry deer are constantly roaming your yard, and you really, really dislike wire cages!

Don’t give up, there’s hope. Let’s talk about bringing your dream garden to your deck or patio by using an assortment of pots and creative containers to grow your favorite plants.

Please join the Garden Club on Tuesday, March 10, at 1 p.m., in the Lake Room for a fun-filled presentation on deck gardening by Paula Farrell, a long-time member of the Lake Wildwood Garden Club. Refreshments will be served and guests are welcome. If you have questions, contact Sherin Kyte, or 432-3843.

Paula has been enjoying gardening since she was nine years old, inspired by her mother, grandmother and aunt. She has participated in numerous horticultural and landscape design clinics and seminars throughout California and Arizona, including the Sonoma County Master Gardener program.

Paula’s accumulation of gardening knowledge is a result of 60 years of learning from veteran gardeners, dedicated nursery owners and small-town farmers and orchardists in Northern California.

Paula has been an honorary member of Bill Hamilton’s Lake Wildwood staff, assisting with improving the landscaping in our parks, golf course, entrance gates, Community Center and Clubhouse.
