Pat Morse to speak at Franklin Garden Club Meeting

Pat Morse, who operated Wadsworth Farm in Franklin for 26 years, will provide tips for successful vegetable and flower gardening at the Tuesday, May 3 meeting of the Franklin Garden Club that will take place from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the Franklin Senior Center, located at 26 Daniel McCahill Street. The program is open to all residents.

Morse’s sister, Sue Hehn, a lifelong gardener and partner with her in operating the Wadsworth Farm greenhouses, will join her in offering suggestions for growing bountiful vegetable and beautiful flower gardens, including timing of planting, fertilizing, and dealing with gardening challenges. The sisters will also answer gardening questions.

Morse worked with her parents in cultivating vegetables before starting her own greenhouses in 1972. In 1986 she opened Wadsworth Farm, which she operated until 2012, establishing an excellent reputation for the quality of her vegetable and flower plants. The farm is now operated by her son, who raises blueberries and raspberries.

The Franklin Garden Club was founded in 1987 and became a member of The Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts, Inc. in 2015. The Club sponsors a variety of educational programs. Members volunteer to plant and maintain the Veteran’s Memorial Garden at the Town Common, distribute pine tree seedlings to all first graders in Franklin schools, and provide a scholarship to a graduating senior pursuing an education in environmental or horticultural studies. Membership is open to all area residents.
