On Sunday, September 29, 2018, 17 Dogwood Garden Club members and friends met at the Camdenton Library to renew the garden areas.  The Judge Franklin Memorial Garden was originally dedicated on April 13, 2007 after several months of work by the garden club.  Members have been maintaining, planting and expanding the gardens since inception, but many felt that the gardens had reached a point where a major overhaul was necessary.

Karen Johnson and Judy Horrocks led the group in designing the Library garden facelift.  They focused on choosing new plantings that will be deer resistant and low maintenance.  Highlights of the new design also feature attention to color palette and the presence of four-season color.  Three large shrubs and several other plants were removed, selected bushes moved and some of the new plant material has been installed.  More will be added in the spring.  

The Dogwood Garden Club meets on the second Wednesday of every month, usually at 11:30 a.m. at the Camdenton Library.  For more information about the garden or the Dogwood Garden Club, contact Karen Johnson at 573-346-1457 or see our display in the library lobby.
