Amherst Garden Club’s September Meeting

Thursday, September 10

Virtual Garden Hop and Dahlia Magic

Presented by Sue Makowiecki

Join us for a virtual visit to garden club member Sue Makowiecki’s home, where Sue will show us her gardens and talk about dahlia care. Sue’s sprawling 17-acre property in New Boston contains many beautiful perennial beds, including lots of dahlias.

Sue’s Gardening Product Recommendations

It will be the perfect time to see the dahlias in bloom. Sue will explain how to care for them, divide, them, and store them for winter. She can also answer questions about composting and vermicomposting, both of which she does routinely to keep her garden beds well supplied with organic matter.

The business meeting will be hosted on Zoom, and the presentation will be Live (but not recorded) on the club’s Facebook page. Contact the garden club at if you would like to be included.

Sue Makowiecki

About Sue — Sue is a Master Gardener, Natural Resources Steward, and a certified Wildlife Control Operator. She met longtime garden club member Sheila Steele, as well as new member Kathie Breen, while they were completing the Master Gardener training. For their final project, the three helped build an edible garden at the Boys and Girls Club of Souhegan Valley in the spring of 2019. It was a big endeavor and a resounding success. Sue and the others continue to support the project, but unfortunatley COVID-19 has meant no interaction with the kids this season.
