Keith Lubowski works at the Juniper Level Botanical Garden at Plant Delights. His presentation enchanted members with his personal account of his propagation road trip to Western U.S.
This month we were graced with the presence of Joan Matthews, who grows an abundance of unusual chrysanthemum varieties. Matthews and others have revived the Central Carolina Chrysanthemum Society, which disbanded in 2007. Did you know there are 13 different classes of mums? The Society is concerned that the mums we once saw in our grandparents' gardens will eventually be a thing of the past. Please visit www.mums.org/north-carolina/for more information or attend a meeting at JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh who welcomes new members.
