May Guest Speaker
Sue Milliken and Kelly Dodson, the proprietors of Far Reaches Farm in Port Townsend will be the guest speakers at the Thursday, May 7 Coupeville Garden Club meeting. Sue and Kelly are recognized nationally as rare plant specialists and by their own description are "passionate and obsessed" with plants. This passion for plants has taken them around the world where they seek out new plants and return to their nursery to propagate and share their results with the gardening community. They are recognized nationally as informative and entertaining speakers.
Annual Plant Sale
Come one, come all to the Coupeville Garden Club annual plant sale to be held on Saturday, April 25th from 9:00am to 5:00pm at the Coupeville Recreation Hall. See our flyer here»
Our Tuesday greenhouse work is now entirely focused on preparing for the plant sale on April 25th.
Application to Volunteer
Since the greenhouse is on school property, all members who work at the greenhouse are required to complete and sign a Coupeville School District No. 204 Application to Volunteer form. Copies of the form will be available at our Jan 5th meeting. A copy of the complete packet of information (which should be read before signing) will also be available at the meeting and will be emailed to members. It is also available on our website here».
Pesticides & Other Chemicals
As a reminder, in order to remain in compliance with the Agriculture Department, any chemicals or pesticides that you use when you work at the greenhouse must be returned to the shed when you are done.
The reprint of the CGC Cookbook is now available. If you would be interested in a copy, please let Roberta know. Even if you don't need a copy right now, you might want to look ahead to any gift-giving opportunities you have coming up in the new year. They are a perfect gift for birthdays, graduations, hostess gifts or even 'welcome to the neighborhood'! They sell out fast, so give Roberta a call.
We are always on the lookout for content for our website. If anyone has gardening tips, gardening book or tool recommendations, recipes, articles, photos or anything else that might be of interest to visitors of the site and to our members, please contact one of the club's board members.
I work on Front Street in Coupeville, and marvel at the beautiful colors in the flower baskets at the wharf. Every day as I set up Coupe's Last Stand, I take a moment to smell and enjoy! Thank you for your addition to our beautiful town! VickieCatherine Anderson
Great website!Marietta Pepin-Hansberry
Hi I am trying to locate a person or member of Garden club. Her Name is Gino Young. I am a long time friend. Would love to re-contact her again. Please have her e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will give my phone number if this person is the correct Gino Young. I currently still live in Arlington. Thank you so much.Mary Dent
Thanks, Bill, for keeping me up to date on so many gardening goodies. Love this bee-sting tip...thanks, Peggy! This is such a great resource....hats off to you, Bill!Leslie Franzen
Just found this-really nice job on the website. Is it possible to add the Coupeville Library in as a link for resources? - www.sno-isle.org. We have some fabulous books, etc. Also, the Garden Club has been a partner for years with various aspects of our landscape at the library and I have lost the Burtons who were doing my two barrels. Would anyone there be interesting in managing these for the library? Please give me a call at 678-4911, ext 6120. Thanks so much!Nancy Holbrook

Great to have this. Thanks Bill!Diane A.
We are planning to add a bulletin board feature, which would be a perfect way to ask questions, swap items with other members, etc. I have a camellia that did not bloom either, so I'll be watching for any response!Lauree
From the warm sands of Mexico this was such a wonderful surprise. Great job, Mr. Bill! I thought the site was fabulous and the club really appreciates your expertise and hard work. Many thanks!!Nancy Lane
This is great! Going to be a good communication link for all members. Any room for horticultural questions? I have one from a friend, her Yuletide camellia did not bloom this year, no sign of flower buds. It was blooming last year when purchased. Any one with ideas? Bev

OK, I'm not a member (Mildred's daughter), but I proofread pretty well. The site looks impressive, but it would be even more so if a few spelling errors/typos were corrected. (poen, montly, are instead of "our") Pretty passionate bit on orchids...I'm rooting (no pun intended) for them to outlive humans.Bert
Terrific site!! Well done! A big thanks to Bill - it will be a wonderful resource, communication and marketing tool for us all.Joan Wortman
