The Nashua Garden Club will hold its next program at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 7, at the First Baptist Church, 121 Manchester St. The program, Flowering Houseplants, will be presented by Joan Bonnette, master gardener, tree steward and author.

Joan will pull from her 25-plus years of gardening experience and training to discuss more than 20 types of flowering houseplants. She will include overviews of each, growing tips and ease or difficulty of growing particular plants. Attendees will also learn how to fertilize for optimum growth and bloom as well as how to deal with insect pests particular to each plant. Joan will also bring many “baby plants” to share with the audience.

Whether you are planning to add to your collection, to improve the health of your current indoor garden or simply need a respite from New Hampshire’s frigid weather, you will be certain to learn a great deal and have an enjoyable evening.

All are welcome. Light refreshment will be served. Admission is free for members and $5 for nonmembers. For information, visit NashuaGardenClub.com.
