Members Showcase: Carol Clark will provide an overview of how to access and use the ORG&HPS on-line Germination Guide.

Membership renewals: If there are any changes required for our records, please bring an application form outlining those details along with your payment.

Seedex donations: Drop your bundle of seed packages into the box at the membership desk. We'll make sure that Arie gets them.

A few packages of Veratrum nigrum (false hellebore) are still available at $1 each. The seed of this species has a short period of viability and should be sown immediately. Sow them in a small pot, covered with a plastic bag, give them a few days at room temperature to imbibe moisture then put the pot outdoors for the winter.

Pots, trays, labels and GA3 will be available for purchase at this meeting. Because we'll have plenty of stock on through until April, there is no hurry to get your supplies unless you will be unable to attend meetings over the winter.
