We all met on Sunday January 14 to select which trees would go to the seminar exhibit in Santa Nella on February 2-4. We can make only one good display this year, being our first year displaying at the biennial seminar. In 2020 we will have many more trees and will have 4 of our own shows to strive for to improve our trees and display expertise.
The top Juniper (Janice) is ready. The Boxwood (Brenda) is ready, albeit no refinement yet but nice wood, moss and very healthy. The Ficus B-D (Charlie) needs a bit of trimming and moss added. The Ficus nerifolia (Shirley) will have the soil pared down a bit and moss added. A few leaves will be removed. The accent plant (Cristina) is ready.
We all will bring back up trees in case something happens. John Carpenter and Kathy Shaner will be the final say as to what goes into the display and where in the display they will go. this will be a good learning experience for us. Looking forward to it.
