Plant Exchange, LVBHS
Sunday November 17, the 3rd Sunday of the month.
This is a good time to start thinking about what you
would like to bring from your gardens. And now might be
a good time to pot up some of your cuttings. Please bring
your cuttings (potted or not) and bare root plants; seedlings
and mature plants; and bulbs and seeds. You do not have
to be a member of LVBHS (though we would like that!) to
participate in the exchange. This will also be our time to
nominate officers for next year.
PLEASE NOTE THE NEW LOCATION
(we expect it to be here from now on).
Meetings will be at Stone Pine Hall, next to Lompoc
Museum on 201 S. “H” Street. Lompoc, Calif. 93436.
