"The Gesneriad Society Convention Flower Show" plus Annual Propagation meeting

This month we have a special event at our monthly meeting -- actually, we'll have two!  As a follow-up to our series on propagation, we'll have our annual Propagation Meeting, when you, members, bring your extra plant material (cuttings, plants, tubers, rhizomes etc.) to share with all.  Please make sure all material is correctly labeled and pest- and disease-free.  We'll not have an instructional propagation workshop as we have already covered that last month.  Instead, we'll watch and review the slideshow from the Gesneriad Society convention last summer.   This promises to be another great occasion, not to be missed.

As usual, we'll have coffee/refreshments, a fantastic sales plant, a judged Little Show, raffle, and much more. Hope to see you then! Guests are welcome.
