Joliet's Barber and Oberwartmann Horticulture Center will host our third free public session, "How To Put Glam in Your Garden With Lilies," at 1.30 PM, Sunday, March 10 at 227 N. Gougar Road, Joliet.

It will be followed by a lily bulb sale the next weekend from 8.00 AM to 2.00 PM on Sunday, March 17 as part of the Oberwartmann's Spring Garden Day.

The Lily Society's bulb sale offers those attending Oberwartmann's March 17 Garden Day a chance to buy a wide variety of lily bulbs at modest prices, including many left over from our Fall, 2012 Sale at the Chicago Botanic Garden.

Those attending will have the chance to buy an assortment of lilies give them blooms all summer long. Written instructions will be available, and experts will be at the sale to answer questions.

RE: Illinois : MARCH 10 Lily Society Talk in Joliet

I’m not sure! I was drafted this winter to be the media person….without really knowing what I can do that would not eat up all my time. I started the Lily Society Facebook page, but apart from that, the only thing I know to do is put notices on GW.

I do know a couple of people who live further away came to the fall bulb sale because they saw the listing I posted on GW last fall. They told the pres., which is probably why I got drafted.

Someone did join at the previous meeting…but I don’t know how he heard about it; he didn’t say.

Lily is one obsessive gardener, and a real prima donna. But she is so lovely, and fits in so well, she can be forgiven. I’d like to think it was named after my aunt, who really was named Lily.

I will try to bump the notices down after they occur, but I had a class yesterday, got home late, and forgot.
