Horizontal line design was the topic of an instructional video viewed by members of LaJardiniere Garden Club at their March 21 meeting. It instructed on the types of plant material that are needed: line material consisting of spiked and rounded forms and filler or transitional material, as well as conditioning of plant materials; the type of container which would be needed, and other necessary materials.
The video also explained guidelines for the number and placement of the various plant forms. It stressed that these were guidelines, not rigid rules, and that each design had to be adapted to suit the plant material used. Following the video, club members used materials they had brought to make their own horizontal line designs.
During the business meeting, Mary Ann Hulette presented preliminary plans for the memorial garden to be constructed at PUSH to honor Franklin County nurses who have served their country.
