Garden Club names needed

So my wife and her partner in crime are planning on forming a garden club. The hoity-toity traditional clubs have waiting lists. They want to form an alternative Scrappy Doo of garden clubs. (I assume it is just an excuse for them to get together and drink in each others' back yards.) But they need a name.

These are off the top of my head:

The Garden Hoes

Dirty Nails

Dig it!

No pansies allowed!

Daze of wine and roses

The Weed Eaters


My better half was underwhelmed. I figgered you folk could do much better.

heh, I don't think it's much better, but how about:

Dandelion Divas?
Mulch Mistresses?
Cutting Crew? (probably been done before - hairdressers if I recall)

Crap. The first one to pop into my head is the first one on your list.

Come on. How can you have a women's garden group and NOT somehow work in the word "hoe"???

Hoes with Hoses. Oh wait, that would be a different kind of garden club. A very different kind. I don't even think they would have a garden.

I'm trying to make a clever "green thumb" reference, but I keep coming up with lame booger jokes.

I really do have a lovely garden, though. Really.

Are they looking for some kind of cutesy name like "The Rose Buds" or what?

"The High Times Horticultural and Sharpshooting Society"

I bet the local law enforcement types would get a kick out of that one.

How about the Flowering Pears of Death (Flowering Bitches of Death works well, too I think)

or maybe The Death Pansies

perhaps The Maidenhairs of Death

you could even go with something like Impatient Death

ooh, ooh, I know. How about...the Poisonous Begonia Society From Which Death Comes

that would be a GREAT name.

Dorothy Parker was once playing a word game where you had to use the word given in a sentance. She was given "horticulture" and came up with:
"You can lead a horticulture, but you cannot make her think." I submit something along those lines.
