Potting Up


MGC’s very large shipment of bareroot and plug perennials will arrive in early March.  For our newest members, this means it is time to ‘party’ in the greenhouse – get our hands in the soil, discover how much we don’t know about plant structure, pot up thousands of plants to grow on for the sale, and start making a shopping list.  Being together in the warm and sunny Upper Greenhouse (behind Town Hall) is a lovely experience that members look forward to each spring.

This year’s dates and times for the potting up are:
          Saturdays, March 16 and 23, 10 a.m. to Noon and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
          Sundays, March 17 and 24, 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
          Weekdays, March 18, 21 and 25, 10 a.m. to Noon

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!
