Is the croton society having the sale this fall? I havent heard anything about it at all????
anyone know anything about this??????
Sounds like all is quiet on the Western Front!
I think I heard something, shhhhh....hear that? Crickets! Where is everyone?
I wish I could add something but have no details.
Rob FYI - as per Phil in the Oct. Meeting thread...
USF Fall Sale is the location for the Crotons Society's Fall Sale.
Perhaps this Fall? Any anouncements from the Society's officers? Anyone heard anything?
Are there any meetings or votes? Don"t remember seeing anything in the last year concerning the society itself. Was there a meeting/vote at Mikes? Stupid question but who is all on the board? I looked online and on my calendar and can't tell.
I hope USF is on the schedule.
Some of us may want to donate some plants. Air layers on and then pot them up and have ready for the sale requires a bit a planning. Should we set aside some plants for this function ? Anyone know ?
Moose - The USF Fall Plant Sale is scheduled for 8-9 October 2011. Whenever the Croton Society had enough plants (donations plus some purchased wholesale and the sold retail), we had a sales area. The major problem now is set up and staffing of the sales area and then tear down on Sunday afternoon; the same old gang has been doing the same old work since day 1. Sound familiar...???
Based on annecdotal comments, the Society makes almost as much profit at a good croton meeting/auction with a lot less work. Good for the bottom line but not especially good for recruiting new members
Getting east coast plants to the west coast is another added complication..
However, I suspect your generous donations would be welcome at a sale, at an auction, or whatever so keep air layering and potting them up.
Bren, Maybe we will get some info in the June newsletter.
