Potting Up

Tired of winter?  Ready to get your hands into the soil?  Now’s your chance to experience a little whiff of spring and help us prepare for MGC’s 83rd Plant Sale.  The bare root perennials we ordered last fall are due to arrive the week of February 28—all ready for potting up and growing on in cold frames.
The (tentative) dates and times for potting up are:
                        Saturdays, March 5th, 12th and 19th from 10:00-12:00 and 2:00-4:00
                        Weekday March 7-11, 15-17 from 10:00-11:30AM

Since MGC’s February meeting is virtual, no physical clipboard signup sheets can be passed around – so sad!  You can sign up to help by sending me an email (nial590@verizon.net) or phoning (973-762-4136).  I will get in touch with everyone to confirm their time slot and later as a reminder.   Although I am hopeful that conditions will be much improved by March, the number of members potting up for each time slot will be limited to 5 and we will wear masks.  Able bodies willing to help tote the pots up to the cold frames would be greatly appreciated!  Hanging out together in the sunny, warm upper greenhouse is always a special pleasure.  No experience necessary – helpful advice is always available.

Come and join the fun!
