The perennial divisions contributed by members are the core of our fundraising success. Without your spadework and generosity we can’t do it. Please label your divisions thoroughly and include photos if you can. It makes for a guaranteed sale if you show the plant at its best. Simple labels can be made by cutting large yogurt containers into strips and writing on them with black markers, or pick up ready-cut labels from the Hort meeting.
