North Haven Garden Club Plants 500 Spring Bulbs

Recently members of the North Haven Garden Club planted 500 double Narcissus bulbs in the several of the gardens the club cares for.  In the Colonial Garden behind the Historical Society, club members Brenda Howlett, Mary Cameron and Marge Quinn with help from North Haven High School students Anna Marie Piscitelli (10th grade) and Gina Flanagan-Peretore (11th grade), planted 100 Narcissus bulbs. North Haven Garden Club members Lee Fermo planted bulbs and the library gardens and Marge Quinn planted bulbs at the Montowese and Fitch Garden.  Member Cindy Golia with help from Keith Lombardo, Lynda O"Donnell, Angela Buzzelli, Lee Fermo, Brenda Howlett planted 200 bulbs at the town hall gardens and the side of the Town Hall. Cindy Golia planted bulbs at the Pollinator Garden at Todds Pond and at the Lois Stover Pollinator Garden.  We are all looking forward to a "special show" in the spring.

FUN FACT: Daffodil bulbs are poisonous to squirrels, voles, mice, and other rodents so they will not be eaten.
