In the New Year, start a new tradition of presenting a family member or friend with the Flower for the Month they were born. Here is a list to help you get started, January is Carnation, February is Iris, March is Daffodil, April is Daisy, May is Lily of the Valley, June is the Rose, July is Larkspur, August is Gladiolus, September is Aster, October is Marigold, November is Chrysanthemum, and December is Poinsettia. If the recipient has limited space, some of these flowers can be grown in pots to put on a deck or patio or can be given as cut flowers. It is a great way to encourage others to get into gardening.

Scholarship Chair GCNJ/Past Pres. Bayberry Garden Club Brielle

I recently did a program for my Questers (history) Chapter on Victorian Floral Communication. Researching was fun. I suggested to my Master Gardener organization that we have a flower of the month in our newsletter. Seems we are on the same page. I like your idea and perhaps when we all get back together, this would be a fun way to start a garden club meeting. "Flower of the month!" Thinking the same ... thanks for the beautiful photos!
