BSSJ March 2K11 Repotting Workshop

BSSJ Had our first workshop of 2011. Had about 12-15 folks there, at various times. The workshop was held at the Clover Gardens Nursery on Church Road in Marlton, N.J.

Some members wore their new embroidered clothing with the club logo...these turned out very nice!

Our host Paula was happy to see the group, as it meant Spring is actually here, and her business would start back from Winter slumber.

Karen brought several small trees...a Serissa in bloom, and a small Maple.
Doc had a nice little starter Maple...
Rob had his vine and the pine he has been working for several years...

JW Burton was helping with a nice tropical...
Tom & Connie brought a shohin pine which has been worked for several years now, and a new find, a garden Juniper...

Everyone helped...and all benefitted from the help. Several trees which have been in the works for a few years are showing nice progress. This helps to bolster ones' confidence that what they are doing actually works...what a concept! It also allows us to take the next harder steps in starting to think out of the box about our trees, as the Europeans have been doing this last decade. This sort of thinking will help all of us in making our trees the best they can be.

  1. Flex,

    Nice photos and thank you for taking them and posting them.

    It looks like Rob has a Cape Honeysuckle which is a really pretty tropical and throws some beautiful flowers. The Cape is from the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa, where this type of tree/vine originates.

    And thanks to everyone for the club shirts and aprons, etc. Like the red and the way the logo shows off. We are really up and running, aren't we?
