Spilled gardening

It's called a "spilled garden, and it may look like the pot has just tipped over with flowers and herbs falling from it.

But there's a technique to planting this type of garden. Marion Adams, a member of the Friendly Thyme Herb Club, will give a lecture and demonstration on the spilled garden at Friday's meeting at Ferndale-Linthicum Senior Center, 7205 Baltimore & Annapolis Blvd.

A social time with refreshments will start at 9:15 a.m., with the program and business meeting at 10 a.m. Guests are welcome.

Bertha Hunter will give an herb report on lavender. Joan Krammes will give the book report.
