THE 66th ANNUAL GRANVILLE GARDEN CLUB DAFFODIL SHOW & SALE
In 1944, members of the Granville Garden Club placed a daffodil exhibit in the Granville Public Library, planting the seeds for the Daffodil Show our community continues to enjoy today. This year, under the guidance of show committee chairs: Monique Pinkerton and Don Hunter the club presents its sixty-sixth annual event. This show features over 300 varieties of daffodils in specimen displays and floral designs depicting the show’s theme. It is the club’s aim to provide something for everyone including the science of daffodils, the elegance of bouquet and floral art.
Although plans for the event evolve over months, the actual show is assembled in just a few days. Members and volunteers carefully exchange the College Town House Victorian furnishings with display tables while others pick buckets full of daffodils for the show. On the morning of the event, members submit unique specimens while others complete floral designs.
Show visitors have the opportunity to order their own daffodil bulbs for planting in the fall. Granville Garden Club members are available to assist in selection. Easy to grow, daffodils are resistant to the elements and to hungry herbivores.
Established in 1931, the club’s mission is to stimulate knowledge and love of gardening, to aid in the protection of native plants and wildlife, and to encourage civic beautification. Proceeds from this event help fund various club community beautification projects, including the Robbins Hunter Museum Garden, Broadway crosswalk planters and the Junior Gardener program.
Daffodil Show hours are Saturday, April 9, from 1:00 to 7:00p.m. and Sunday, April 10, from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the College Town House, 334 E. Broadway. No admission charge.
This annual event features over 300 daffodil specimens on display, as well as information on the care and feeding of daffodils. Many varieties will be available to order. This year's exhibit will showcase 60+ spring floral arrangements of all sizes and shapes; created by members of the Granville Garden Club. Celebrate SPRING and The Wonders of Mother Nature in Granville. Admission is free.
