Silver Spring Garden Club June 2020 Meeting will be Hosted ONLINE!


We are holding a virtual/online meeting this month due to the Coroniavirus restrictions.

We will hold it on our scheduled date of Monday, June 15. We will begin the meeting at 7:30pm and plan for it to last until about 9pm.

We will use a service like Zoom and a link/code will be emailed to all club members shortly before the meeting start time, so be sure to check your email inbox and save that date in your schedule to join us.

Our virtual meeting will start with club announcements and updates. Then, our featured speaker will present his talk. Finally, we will share photos from our gardens (see below on how to submit them in advance).

Our featured speaker is Eva Monheim.
Her topic is: "What's Old is New Again - With a Different Twist."
"Shrubs & Hedges," a new book written by Eva Monheim, will give members a glimpse into the use of shrubs from the past and a peek at the new shrubs coming into the marketplace. Smaller sizes of the once sprawling shrubs now take on the look of the cosmopolitan. Small-statured shrubs are perfect for balconies and patios, while the moderately sized are perfect for the perennial border. Most new shrubs require little pruning or fussing and make a statement in colors to match any external decor. The range of plants is astounding and certainly exciting for the gardener who wants to increase their collections while reducing their workload. A list of plants will be provided for attendees. Get ready to ask questions too!

Garden Photo Sharing Instructions: 
We have a popular feature at our monthly Club meetings that helps members become more familiar with each others’ gardens. The idea is to have an on-going slide show of members’ gardens/plants before and after the featured speaker. In this way, we get to know each others’ gardens in an informal manner.   

To submit your garden photos, email the Club’s Vice President Eddie Chang at <> and, in the body of the email, include whose garden it is and where, the month/season the photo was taken, and, of course, the name of the plant(s) pictured.
