The Inman Center is the beautiful big center building facing Wedgewood that has the circular drive in front of it. There is a parking garage for it up the small drive to the left if you face the building (also a sign saying Inman Center Parking on that drive). Inman parking is to the right clearly marked. There are elevators just as you come into the garage with unloading space in front of them. Visitor parking is to the left. Take the elevators to the 4th floor and turn right when you get off. Our meeting room is there. There will be a cart available if you need it to carry things in. So easy access and a wonderful meeting place. Thanks so much Belmont!
The Society will provide ham and turkey. Members are asked to bring a covered dish. We will be playing a Santa game! Everyone should bring gift (no more than $20) suitable for a man or woman, gardening or not, to exchange.
David Cook of the UT Extension Service in Davidson County, known fondly as “The Bug Man”, will speak about insects. The meeting will be held in the Potter Room at the Cheekwood Visitor Center.
David’s presentation is an excellent resource for the types of insects that attack our roses in Tennessee. He explains how to identify the culprit based on the damage to the plant, and gives organic solutions for dealing with them.
The October monthly meeting will be held on Sunday, October 21 (not October 7).
Christian Bedard, Research Director and Licensing Manager at Weeks Roses, will speak, so mark your calendars. The program will be a must-see.
