Our speaker will be Gordon MacKay of Alba Plants on the topic of PROPAGATION.
Gordon teaches the propagation portion of the VIU Master Garden Program and is always well received. He stated that he may also present a few slides illustrating some of his favourite plants to tie in to the topic. There will be time for questions at the end.
Twenty club members attended the fruit tree pruning workshop led by Gordon in August and there may be a chance of a Winter Pruning session early in in 2020. Stay tuned.

Following the Break, club members will be asked to vote on the naming of April J as Vice President, taking over from Shamim R . Thank-you Shamim 🌹 for all you do for the club.

The October 17th meeting will include a Members’ Plant Auction. Please keep this in mind when you are doing your Fall garden clean-up or reassessing your houseplants.. Pot up and label plant donations so that our auctioneers know what they are describing.

Refreshments of tea and decaf coffee will be provided at the break. Please Lug a Mug from home.☕️. Goodies will be provided.
