Daytime temperatures sometimes peak at a near record high of 60 degrees, and in a few short days, struggle to reach the mid-teens. At any rate, spring is just around the corner as is the BuckeyeDistrictSpringMeeting. BuckeyeDistrictSpringMeeting We have an exciting agenda planned for our spring meeting in Columbus at the Franklin Park Conservatory on Sunday, April 1, 2001. We are fortunate to have as our guest speaker, John Mattia, of Orange, CT. John, an avid exhibitor as well as a writer and lecturer will present “Travels With Roses”. Sharene Rausch, from the Ortho Division of the Scotts Company will also speak on chemical safety and new 1 products from Ortho. There will be a panel discussion on rose culture, and you will have an opportunity to bid on a rose or two. Once again, Brian Burley will have bags of Mills Magic Mix available for sale. Be sure to mark this date on your calendar, and join us in Columbus. On Saturday, March 31, 2001, the day before the spring meeting, Arrangement Chairman, Dr. Gary Barlow will conduct an all day seminar/workshop devoted to “Arrangements in the Oriental Manner”. Also, Dr. Jim Hering, Horticulture Judges Chairman, has scheduled an afternoon horticulture-judging seminar. Details for these seminars can be found elsewhere in the bulletin.
