It may be cold and snowing, but the primrose are beginning to appear in the markets. Spring is not far away! Remember to keep the plants in a cool place when you have them inside, and don't let them dry out. Speaking of Spring, join us at our February 16 meeting and learn about butterflies from Gloria Stevens of Springville Herbary.   More on Primrose care

The Country Garden Club of Mount Laurel was organized in 1964, and is committed to civic and community projects.

Currently membership is open to local area residents interested in horticulture who can be actively involved in the functions of the club.

Goals of our Club

  • To stimulate an appreciation of plants.
  • Aid in the improvement of home gardening.
  • Encourage civic planting. 
  • Promote the artistic use of flowers in the home.

  • Develop an awareness of and concern for environmental problems.

Some of our civic projects over the years:

  • Live holiday wreaths are made and presented to all public buildings in the township of Mount Laurel.
  • A scholarship is awarded to a graduating Mount Laurel Senior.
  • Flower arrangements are given to the Mount Laurel Library to decorate the main sitting area.
  • An area in the Smithville Mansion or in a Fairmount Park Home room is decorated during the holiday season.
  • An area in the Governor's Mansion (Drumthwacket) is decorated during the holiday season, as is Farmer's Hall of Mt. Laurel.
  • Annuals and perennials are planted and maintained at the Mount Laurel Library.
  • A butterfly garden is maintained at the PAWS Nature Center in Mount Laurel.
  • A Tree is planted at a community site in honor of Arbor Day.
