Next Meeting - Saturday 21 May 2022
Our May meeting will be at the Sanlay Nursery on the corner of the Bruce Highway and Hall Street at Meringa. Brooke Young-Kerr will give us a talk on Garden Design and the competition is a photographic competition for a 6x4 photo of a Flower in Your Garden.
Please remember to bring your chair, a hat, a cup and an item for the raffle table, as we are at a commercial nursery no plant material for the raffle please!
It is also our turn to host a Far North Queensland Combined Garden Clubs Meeting this year which will be happening on 26 June, and we would appreciate if all members would now start to prepare some really worthy plants for our raffle tables.
A reminder MELIOIDOSIS
It was worrying to hear of a confirmed case of melioidosis in Cairns earlier this year. This bacterium lives in the soil in most tropical countries around the world and can cause a very nasty and sometimes fatal illness.
It tends Ito rises to the surface of the soil in wet weather, and we are urged to wear shoes and gloves when gardening, cover all cuts and scratches, and shower when we are finished.
Covid-19 protocols will be observed --
NOTE: The Cairns Garden Club is aware of our responsibility to help in prevention of the spread of diseases and pests in plants, particularly electric ants which are on the march again. Please make sure that any plant which you bring to the raffle table or the competition is free from pests and disease. We strongly recommend an annual inspection of your property for electric ants, which is free and can be arranged by contacting Gary Morton at DAF 0421 692 251 or phone 13 25 23
