Propagation



Propagation of plant material for our annual Plant Sale in May will have wrapped up for the Fall by the time you receive this Weeder. We will be starting up again in January every Saturday from 10:00AM until noon at the Wolfe Ranch. I want to thank everyone who came out to help this Fall with bringing their cuttings, as well as rooted plants and plants to be divided. We all enjoyed the camaraderie, the propagation classes and especially the treats each week.

Whether you were there one Saturday or every Saturday your help is very much appreciated. As of Saturday 11/3 we have had 40 individual Diggers and friends who come out and helped. We have aver- aged 15.5 Diggers each week, who have contributed a minimum of 368 person hours toward making the 2019 Plant Sale a success. You all will be notified when we start up again in January. Thank you all.

The Plant Sale Committee and Board has prepared a detailed month by month draft manual on what needs to be done to put on a successful Plant Sale. We will be sending this Draft out to all members for your review, comment and suggestions to help improve our Propagation and Plant Sale process. We hope to have it out to you before the new year and are looking forward to to your comments. This is a team effort to put on an annual Plant Sale and each one of you are part of the Team.
