The creative juices were flowing at the October 4th meeting of the Tweed and District Horticultural Society. Linda Holmes, a member of the group guided the members as they created a Harvest Pumpkin planter. The tables and even the floor were covered with flowers and foliage to use in the planters…hosta leaves, sedum, hydrangea, zinnias, rudbeckia, ornamental grasses plus much more!!!
To start, the members, cut a hole in their pie sized pumpkin and then cleaned out the seeds etc.…. definitely the yucky part of the process! Next a plastic cup was placed in the pumpkin shell with some wet oasis…making sure that the oasis was a bit above the edge of the cup. Then the fun started…. gathering materials to use in the planter…. lots of chatter as members helped each other and admired each other’s work. The pumpkin lid was attached using a floral pick.
Special thanks to Linda for her guidance throughout the class….her “students” were thrilled with their final results!
