Four Seasons

The club met June 1 at the home of Deb Krukemyer. She showed members her lavish roses and gave
informative tips on how to take care of roses.
Follow planting instructions that come with your rose – each different variety of rose has specific care.
All roses need at least six hours of sun, water, fertilizer, and mulch. Fertilize in May/June and July
and stop deadheading when done fertilizing.
President Kohlenberg opened the meeting with 16 members answering roll call to "What rose bush works
best for you?"
She thanked the community planting committee – Krukemyer, Eileen Schuerman, Trina Karns, Julie Price and
Renee Wendt – for all the planting done at the Pemberville Library, and especially Karns for planting
hostas on the east side of the building. Kohlenberg received thanks from Pemberville Independent
Merchant’s Association for the club’s Mother’s Day kids’ planting at the police station.
Some members attended guest night provided by Fostoria Garden Club, a feast and flower arrangements done
by Todd Sheets and Michelle with Beeker’s and Downtown Deco in Pemberville. Nancy Fahle gave members
tidbits from the program, stating that each member should have a 5-inch glass square vase to their
collection, hot items included: antique glassware, fairy gardens, wax string, copper tubing, decorative
wires, bird nests, herbs and even old garden hoses.
Price discussed club Web site options. She was to research and come as close as possible to
"Pemberville Four Seasons" for the domain name. Price will purchase the domain name tonight.
The Web site will show upcoming meetings, flower show information, gardening hints, program tidbits and
a contact.
Wendt said flower show planning is moving right along.
The next meeting will be July 13 at Pemberville Library. Maxine Hagemeyer and Judy Sayen will be
hostesses. Roll call: Name your favorite groundcover, and the program will be flower arranging.
