PSJ gardeners focus on flower arranging

Special to the Star

The Port St. Joe Garden Club featured a class on flower arranging using innovative materials at its February meetings. President Sarah Darden artfully created several floral designs inspired by nationally renowned floral designer and instructor Jane Godshalk.

Godshalk's new book, Flower Arranging Secrets–Natural Designs for Everyday Living, promotes the use of easily sourced floral materials acquired from a stroll through the home garden or down the aisle of the grocery store. When fashioning one of her arrangements, Darden demonstrated how glass vases filled with wound grapevines can lend an extra dimension of textural interest while at the same time avoiding single use foam supports.

Members of the garden club are mobilizing for its annual Plant Sale/Yard Sale slated for Saturday, April 10 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. ET at the Garden Center located at 216 Eighth Street. They are starting herb seedlings, dividing bulbs, and crafting yard ornaments in an effort to feature an appealing array or plants and goods for local gardeners.
