Marshall to speak at garden club meeting

This month's meeting of the Quononoquott Garden Club will be on Monday, Sept. 8, at St. Matthew's Parish Hall. The business meeting will begin at 11 a.m. and will be followed by a presentation by island gardener Roger Marshall on "Putting the Garden to Rest for the Winter."

Marshall's talk, which begins at 1 p.m., will include tips on the winter care of perennials, grasses and shrubs and he will also touch on pruning in the garden.

Marshall was featured in the magazine, "People, Places and Plants" which wrote about his book "How to Build Your Own Greenhouse - Designs and Plans to Meet Your Growing Needs."

Prior to the talk, members will enjoy a lunch prepared by the hospitality committee.
