The Mendham Garden Club has been in continuous existence since 1932. The membership is comprised of an eclectic group of active residents of all ages and stages of life. Experience is not required, just a joy in gardening. We welcome the seasoned gardener as well as the beginner.
Meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from September through June, with members serving light refreshments. Meetings include information session and an occasional guest lecturer.
In addition to our meetings, workdays are on Tuesdays from May through September/October, weather permitting.
What We Do
Our joy in gardening can be seen, but not limited to the Phoenix House Gardens, the Oak Tree Triangle at Cold Hill Road, and the tubs along the street in front of the Phoenix House and Bowers Building. Every year before Holly Trail Day we gather to hand make wreaths for the Phoenix House, Bowers Building, the library, post office, police headquarters and the Ralston Fire Hall. The flower arrangements in the library are also our attempts to brighten every corner of town.
The skill we learn and share are practiced in our own gardens throughout Mendham. We share plants, knowledge, hopes, experience, and friendships.
Annual Plant Sale
Each year we hold a plant sale in May in the King’s shopping center. We make available a wide variety of flowering plants, hanging baskets, as well as herbs and unusual ground covers. Our best sellers, however, are those plants gleaned from our own gardens when plants are divided and sub-divided. These precious gems go fast. Watch for our signs and find a few gems for your garden. All advice and hints are free! Proceeds are used to buy supplies and materials for our ongoing projects in town as well as an annual scholarship for a graduating senior from West Morris Mendham High School.
