Four Seasons Garden Club
Eleven club members and four guests met April 1 at Wood County Hospital for a tour of the roof-top gardens led by Richard Bostdorff of Bostdorff Greenhouse and Dan Baker from the hospital.
This is the only roof-top garden in Wood County and the only one at a hospital. This is the garden's fourth growing season. Planted with eight different varieties of sedum, it is expected to last a long time with minimal maintenance because there are no insect or disease pressures.
Bostdorff provided two pots of tulips which were given as prizes.
Final revisions have been made to the Pemberville Fair Flower Show schedule and will be printed for distribution. The flower show supplies have been moved to a new location.

WESTON - Veteran gardeners and farmers know the invaluable service of bees. Bill Morey, along with his wife, Deborah, are using the productivity of bees as a nice small business venture.
The couple have begun the Hive N Garden, LLC, based out of their home in Weston.
Though they have bee hives at their home, most of their 11 hives are scattered around the county in other locations.
Morey says they produce raw honey without any chemicals and without heating it as many honey producers do.
He also, for the most part, does not use any smoke to handle or move the bees.
"The bees are much more gentle," Morey said. "There is no benefit to me or the bees to use the smoke."
With as many as 50,000 bees servicing his hives, one might expect he has been stung frequently.
"When handling my hives, even one sting is a rarity," he said.
