|New England Daylily Society Meeting
We have a great agenda planned for our meeting on Saturday, April 11, 2015, at Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, MA. Click here for directions.
In the morning, Neal Sanders, local mystery writer from Medfield, MA, popular public speaker and blogger of The Principal Undergardener, presents his humorous talk on “Gardening is Murder”, the “husband’s point of view” of gardening. Neal gives his insight from “someone who gardens less from an abiding love of horticulture than for the love of a spouse”. Neal has given his presentation for more than a hundred organizations over the past two years. You can learn more about Neal and his writing at http://www.thehardingtonpress.com/.
In the afternoon our guest speaker will be hybridizer Curt Hanson, owner of Crintonic Gardens in Gates Mills, Ohio, and winner of the 2003 Stout Silver Medal for the daylily PRIMAL SCREAM. He has introduced over 600 daylily cultivars and is known to create beautiful and distinctive daylilies rigorously selected for consistency and vigor under TYPICAL zone 5 garden conditions. He'll share tips for growing and hybridizing daylilies, illustrating his presentation with photo slides.
Please bring a dish to share for our Annual Pot Luck Luncheon. If you cannot bring a dish, please pay $10 at the luncheon. Hope to see you there!
