Club Meeting – Air-layering
November 11, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Our November meeting is next Sunday the 11th starting at 2:00PM. Held at the St. Francis Church Hall, 92 Mansell Ave., Hillcrest . If for any reason the upper carpark is full, don’t forget there is another carpark in front of the Church, just off the Morrinsville road.
And don’t forget to bring your own mug, for better tasting coffee or tea and to reduce the waste we have to remove.
I will only be bringing a minimum of the Library (I have to leave for the South Island about 4:30AM Monday). On our website is a library listing. Have a look and if you see something you would like to have a read of, let me know and I will ferret it out and bring it (them) to the meeting. I will be bringing back some terrific books from the South Island for the library, available in December.
Lindsay Muirhead will be talking and demonstrating air-layering. He has had great success with a variety of trees over the years. If you have a tree you think would make a good candidate to air-layer, bring it along for some advice.
And bring along a success story from a previous air-layer if you have one for Show and Tell.
The garment order placed after the Show, is being processed but no more orders will be taken this year. Next year there will be an order taken.
With the winds we have had and that are in the forecast, remember they are very drying, so be attentive to your trees water needs even if there have been some showers.. And when aphids take over, think twice before using Mavrik. I usually use Confidor but couldn’t find it so used Mavrik, and burned most of the fresh new leaves. New leaves will be grown, but it is a stress the tree doesn’t need! Certainly killed the aphids though!
