Well, its spring here in south west Florida ... the days
are mild and temperatures are in the 70's and 80's and night time temps in the
upper 40's and lower 50's, good temps for the start of the growing season. Also
a good time to start your repotting!
Our March meeting will be a little mix of our annual Divide
and conquer program that we usually have in June. We have had some of our Snow
bird members who have ask for a program like this one during there winter stay.
The same rules apply for this program and are as follows:
1, Each person is ask to bring in One named plant to be
divided at the meeting with several tags as one part of the plant will be
auctioned at the meeting.
2, Please soak the plant before the meeting so that most of
the "critters" will be chased out of the plant to be divided.
3, Please have information on how you have been growing the
plant , where and how you care for it.
4, Please bring a photo or explanation of what the plant
looks like in bloom. Most plants can be looked up on your PC and you can usually
print out a picture to bring in!
This should be an entertaining program as well as very
helpful with the repotting time of year, but remember, we will not be repotting
during this meeting.
Please remember, Dues are Due! Yes , and we have some
interesting changes coming in the months ahead so come to the meeting to find
out what's in store for the year!
