May 03 - General Meeting

As spring finally arrives, and the Mother’s Day show is right around the corner, we start making plans for displaying our trees. This month’s general meeting will focus on accent plants. Sometimes referred to as kusamona or shitakusa, accent plantings are created to emphasize elements of your tree and help to convey the theme or tone of your display. Jeff Lorch will offer a short presentation and demonstration of how to compose an accent planting. Then the first 20 members who register, will have an opportunity to make and then take home an accent plant created during the meeting. For $20.00, you will select a custom hand-made Nancy Chipps pot created specifically for this program along with up to 3 plants; everything you need will be provided.  To sign-up contact the administrator on the website and let them know you want to register to make your own accent planting at the meeting. Bring your best accent plant to display at the meeting and receive a free raffle ticket. Remember the Mother’s Day 40th Anniversary show is  at Como next weekend, May 9-10!
