LAKEPORT, Calif. — The Clear Lake Trowel and Trellis Garden Club will meet at noon on Tuesday, Oct. 18, at the Lakeport Scotts Valley Women’s Club House at 2298 Hendricks Road.

Cookies, finger food veggies, coffee and tea will be provided.

They will have a small pre-celebration for Halloween this month.

The club asks all members who are willing and able to wear a Halloween mask or a Halloween hat to the meeting. Prizes will be awarded.

The featured speaker will be Kitty Loberg, who will speak about iris culture and modern irises.

Loberg will tell the club how to get the best out of irises, how the progression of irises has been through the years and what new things hybridizers are producing.

She’ll talk about dividing and planting, and more importantly, she has slides of how to specifically handle rhizomes and what it is like to divide crowded irises and keep them blooming beautifully.

Loberg has grown irises all of her life, and maintains a collection of more than 250 varieties.

She is an accredited Iris Judge of the American Iris Society and will show how irises are one of the best and easiest perennial to grow.
