Dear ODCS members,
The April nor’easter brought us the last blast of winter for several days. Even though it was relatively mild in the MidAtlantic compared to the foot of snow in Pennsylvania and New York areas further north, we had to protect our winter overed mums against damages from the cold rain.
At the April meeting screening of Part One of David Eigenbrode’s “Magic with Mums”, we learned the effects of the different sizes of the containers for propagating cuttings. David shared with us the meticulous design of his in-ground disbud beds and shading structure. Note that his flower beds are open to the elements, it is not a greenhouse.
There will not be a Zoom Meeting in May. We will resume our monthly Meeting in June. Please be sure to save the date June 12th, for the screening of the “July and August Tasks” with Pat Stockett Johnston.
