Potting Up


Although our May Plant Sale seems very far away, early every March MGC receives a very large shipment of bare- root perennials to be potted up and grown on for the sale. This is a wonderful time for MGC members to get together in the warm and sunny Upper Greenhouse behind Town Hall, get our hands dirty, diagnose what is the top of a plant (not so easy sometimes), enjoy each other’s company, and start off our Plant Sale season.

The (tentative) dates and times for potting up are:
                        Saturdays, March 18th and 25th from 10:00-12:00 and 2:00-4:00
                        Sundays, March 19th and 26th from 10:00-12:00
                        Weekdays March 20, 23 and 27 from 10:00-12:00

Please contact me via email, nial590@verizon.net or telephone (973) 762-4136, to sign up to help. If you might be available during the week other than the days listed, please let me know that, too. A clipboard will be passed around at the March meeting as well. I will be in touch with everyone to confirm their time slot and as a reminder.

These Potting-Up Parties are a lot of fun and I look forward to seeing you there in the sunshine of the Upper Greenhouse.

Come and join the fun!
