On April 6, members of the Port St. Joe Garden Club took a tour of the gardens of Carol and Charlie Johnston, “The Amaryllis Man,” in Greenwood. Mr. Johnston has over 24 beds with four to five thousand pots of amaryllis. It was a glorious day and the flowers were overwhelmingly beautiful.
On Thursday April 13, the club is going to tour Conservation Park by covered wagon. Members will meet at the Garden Center and carpool to Panama City Beach. After the tour, members will have lunch and discuss the Plant Sale to be held on April 22, and the upcoming June flower show, “Sunshine and Sandcastles.”
Anyone interested in joining the venturesome Port St. Joe Garden Club or attending the April program should contact a garden club member or leave a message on the Port St Joe Garden Club Facebook page. The Port St. Joe Garden Club's Garden Center is on both national and state historical site lists and available for rental.
