The Dogwood Circle of the Lock Haven Garden Club was established in 1960, and maintains the gardens at the Triangle across from the Post Office and at the Civil War Monument in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania. The club meets monthly at members' homes to learn more about gardening, plants and flower arranging, and occasionally embarks on gardening related excursions. We schedule planting and clean up days throughout the growing season and every one has assigned weeks for weeding and maintenance.
We welcome new members! Email us below!
We thank the Clinton County Foundation for funding the care and maintenance of these City gardens.

Garden of the Month
The winners of the June Garden of the Month are Jane and Tim Thompson, 4 Daffodil

grow. Chosen from a variety of local garden centers, one may see clematis, sedum,
lavender, foxglove, balloon flower, miniature weigela, columbine, heather, redhot
poker, liatris, hardy geranium, pansies and a bright red dragonhead. The garden
is neat and well cared-

Gardens are judged on color, design, neatness, appealing curb appeal, use of natural elements and visibility from the street or alley.
On May 22 we planted our hundreds of annuals at the triangle and Monument. Heartfelt thanks go to husbands Doug Myers and John Miller, Missionaries Sister Hegewald and Sister Smith, Gail Rhoton, Rose Ann Neff and Angela Adams who came out to help.
We met at Hazel’s House and brought miniature arrangements, with the requirement that they be no more than 3” high and 5” wide.
