Members gather at the Planting residence for a fun day potting and styling plants that will be sold at the annual show. Members are asked to contribute three trees to the show and can use the potting parties to get pots, wire, and soil to create or refine their trees. As well the club depends on the gracious donations of members and friends to give large groups of plants to the sale. We gather at the potting parties to work on those donations and refine them for sale. It is a great social time and learning time with the chance to work on many different species of trees. Members then take these trees home and care for them until April show day.
