A hybridizer and registrant of 35 daffodil varieties, Spotts will discuss the history of cultivated daffodils and which varieties grow well in East County gardens. He’ll be assisted by Nancy Tackett, the current ADS webmaster and co-creator of DaffSeek, the online photographic encyclopedia of daffodils.
The meeting will be held Friday, Sept. 9 at 10 a.m. at a Discovery Bay location to be announced. To RSVP, call Jerrie White at 925-513-8357 or e-mail email@example.com. As a follow-up to this informative presentation, the garden club will donate a bed of daffodil bulbs to the town of Discovery Bay to plant for spring blooming.
The garden club meets once a month throughout the year at members’ homes and field trips to points of local interest throughout the Bay Area. Garden club members strive to broaden their knowledge of gardening while participating in local civic projects such as garden design and planting with local youth at the Orin Allen Youth Rehabilitation Facility in Byron.
