Did you attend the UNYHS/HADS
We are looking for the person who attended the Holiday Party Gift Exchange and traded for the mini waffle maker. We have something for you. Please contact/text Michelle Young at 614-668-3798 or:
purpose garden fertilizer around each clump, away from the crown, but over the root area. In a few days the material will dissolve into the soil allowing nutrients to be around the roots. When the soil warms into the 50s growth will begin and food will be available. The noses of your clumps should be visible, or will be soon. Here in tropical Kingston, a few crowns have little green points about an inch high. Snow and rain have been sparse and soil moist but walkable without significant compression. If you do see moisture around your footstep, stay off the garden until it is drier.
One more thing, now that you see your clumps, count the babysitter fans. We need that information by May 1 to know what plants are coming back for the auction. Contact us.
If anyone has any questions about the program or wants to be involved, our emails are on the second page of the UPDATE. Stephanie does a great job of keeping us all informed and in touch.
This year both the Upstate New York Hosta Society (UNYHS) & Hudson Adirondack Daylily Society (HADS) are each offering separate $1,000 Scholarships to a local graduating senior student.
