Re: We all have a story about how we got started, I'd love to hear yours!

Re: Tissue Culture Workshop Interest

That's a great incentive, Harvey! I sure hope we can pick up those last 10! I thought for sure we'd be able to get 16 people off the west coast to sign up.

Re: Tissue Culture Workshop Interest

Forgot about Craigslist...

If you word it slightly differently each time, it doesn't kick you off. They have spam busting software that targets mass mailings of the same content.

Re: Black spots, help!!!

Use Borax for the ants... Bordeaux would be for the fungus (that is if it's effective). When it gets this time of year, I basically write off any leaves left, as the winter will trash them from here...

Re: Bubble Wrap Outside? Good or Bad

If you can keep the moisture out, BW is a good insulater. Perhaps some Christmas lights inside the BW will help on those really cold nights.
