February 2023 Newsletter

 

Eastern Michigan Hosta Society
February 2023 Newsletter

Next Meeting is on February 9th, 2023

Note from the President- We have not experienced enough winter to even hope that we will not get more snow and most likely in significant amounts.   So far this winter I have only had to shovel off the greenhouse roof one time.   That is a job that is usually done 10-12 times each winter.    Unless you are a Michigan snow lover, chances are that you are enjoying the lack of snow.   The lack of snow and our typical hard freezes also has its consequences.   The lack of snow allows our plants to be subjected to the cold without the insulative properties of snow pack, the plants tend to heave from the ground and the chance of freeze damage to their crowns and growth tips is increased, and plants tend to be more subjected to foraging damage by four legged creatures when there is no snow cover.     Another advantage to our typical winter is that the extreme cold temperatures will kill off damaging insects.   Let’s just hope that we don’t see winter arrive in March, April, and May.

Hosta College is In-Person this year.   The dates are March 17th and 18th.   It will be at the regular place in Piqua, OH.   More about Hosta College is contained in the flyer copied and pasted to the last page of this Newsletter.   Most of the EMHS members that are attending are staying at the Comfort Inn in Piqua.   It is within about two miles of the Upper Valley Career Center venue. 

Our meetings are open to anyone interested and everybody is welcome to visit a meeting before they join EMHS.   Please feel free to invite your friends to join us for any of our meetings.  Our indoor meetings this year are going to be back to our normal Potluck Feasts that EMHS is so known to provide.   Please remember to bring your favorite dish to pass. 

Our February Meeting will be on February 9th at the Mayfield Twp. Hall.   Our speaker is Melvyn Corner of Horizon Plants LLC in Lapeer, MI.   You can read Melvyn’s Bio under the “Next Meeting” heading of this Newsletter.   If you have any interest in propagating any type of woody plant in your garden, this is a “Don’t Miss” meeting for sure!

We need volunteers to host a garden tour for the months of June (in the Oxford area) and for the month of August (in the Davison area).   We have one garden host in each of these areas, but would like to get at least one more for each.   Please contact me if you are willing to share your garden with us.   

I hope to see you all at the February 9th meeting featuring our speaker, Melvyn Corner.
Sincerely,
Glen Pace
EMHS President

 

Next Meeting- will be held on February 9th, 2023 at the Mayfield Twp. Hall, 1900 N. Saginaw, Lapeer, MI 48446.  This is our regular meeting place located just south of the point of M-24 and N. Saginaw, (the driveway just north of the Cemetery). 

The doors will open at 5:00 PM for Networking, Potluck at 6:00 PM, Program at 7:00 PM.

Our speaker will be Melvyn Corner of Horizon Plants who will present Softwood and Hardwood Propagation.  

Melvyn’s Bio copied from his website:
Owner Manager, Melvyn Corner, is a UK trained horticulturist. He began his horticultural training by attending a local community college studying part time and working part time at a local garden center. He then went on to study full time at Hadlow College of Horticulture, Kent, England where he obtained a National Certificate in Horticulture. After an 18 month internship in America, Melvyn returned to England to study full time at Warwickshire College of Horticulture, Warwickshire, and obtained an Advanced National Certificate of Horticulture.

Melvyn has experience at large nurseries producing both container shrubs and field grown stock. On the container production side, he has been responsible for propagating and growing on throughout the whole production cycle, from liner to finished plant. On the field grown side, he has been involved in the production of trees/conifers, chip budding/grafting and lifting.

In 2001 Melvyn started a propagation and liner nursery business in Cheshire, England, suppling to local nurseries. In 2006, Melvyn immigrated to Michigan and worked for a liner producer.

He left to start his own business, Horizon Plants LLC in 2011, propagating and growing liners for further growing on. He started with one greenhouse with about 1000 square feet and year by year has increased his production area. Expanding the range of plants from just flowering shrubs, then adding climbing plants, conifers and more recently grafted plants. Always innovating and expanding. Melvyn still finds time to keep up with his hobbies, camping, kayaking, biking, hiking, fishing, swimming and enjoying the outdoor life. He also raises meat chickens and enjoys seasonal acting.

EMHS December 2022 Newsletter

 

Eastern Michigan Hosta Society
December 2022 Newsletter

Next Meeting is on December 8th, this is the Annual Christmas Party

Note from the President- First I want to apologize that I have not sat down to write the Newsletter and get it sent out.   We are having the Annual Christmas Party this year with our biggest potluck of the year.   The ham is already ordered so we have the one main dish, but it is up to all of you to bring your favorite dish to pass.   So, please reserve December 8th for the festivities.

Next, I want to thank Aaron Strouse for doing our first presentation since Covid started back in 2019.    Aaron is always a welcome face to our group and does a wonderful presentation every time he is our speaker.  I also want to thank the following people for hosting this year’s summer tours; Teresa Dillon, Michael Scherbovich, the Native Plant Nursery, Karen & Larry Erickson, Janis and Dennis Pardeik, Dawn and Gary Kendall, and Jim Slezinski.   As always, every garden we visit has something different to offer.   This year we got to see the spring garden plantings of a butterfly garden, a beautifully manicured garden with a fantastic array of miniature Hosta and other perennials, fantastic Daylily gardens with fields of daylily hybridizers results, woodland gardens, ponds in gardens and ones used for irrigation of the plants, and tropical gardens with numerous Musa (banana) varieties as well as some rare cannas and other unusual tropicals, and of course every garden had fantastic garden art.  If you have not gone to these summer tours you are really missing out on some unbelievable gardens and some of the kindest people you will ever meet that are so generous with their gardening knowledge and the techniques they use.  

We already have some volunteers to host next year’s summer tours, but if you are interested in offering to host a tour of your own garden or know of a garden that you feel should not be missed, please let me know by email or at the December meeting. 

We do not have any speakers scheduled yet for the 2023 calendar year.   If you know of somebody you would like to hear speak at EMHS, please let any of the Board members know.  

The EMHS Board was not able to have their annual Board meeting in November due to illness, so we will be meeting at the township hall before the Christmas Party.   If you want to come early to decorate, please feel free to do so as we will be busy with our meeting in one corner of the hall.  

I look forward to seeing everybody at our party.

Happy Holidays!
Sincerely,
Glen Pace
EMHS President

 

Next Meeting- THE EMHS 2022 Christmas Party will be held on December 8th, 2022 at the Mayfield Twp. Hall, 1900 N. Saginaw, Lapeer, MI 48446.  This is our regular meeting place located just south of the point of M-24 and N. Saginaw, (the driveway just north of the Cemetery). 

The doors will open at 5:00 PM for decorating, Networking at 6:00 PM, Dinner at 6:30 PM, Business Meeting at 7:30 PM, and Gift Exchange at 7:45 PM.

This annual event is always a lot of fun and a great way to end the year for the club.  The Club will provide the meat (ham) and table set-ups.  We do ask that everybody bring a dish to pass as this is our biggest potluck of the year. 

We will be doing the gift exchange as we have done in the past.  If you are interested in exchanging gifts, all you have to do is bring a wrapped non-gender-specific gift with a value of $10.  All the gifts will be laid at the back of the room and during the party we will call names from the sign-up sheet of the people who brought gifts.  When your name is called you go pick out a gift.  Nobody is required to bring a gift for the exchange, but if you do not bring one, please understand that you will not be able to place your name on the list to pick one out.  This is the only way to assure that all people who bring a gift will receive one.

Glen went over the rules for the exchange for those new members that had not been to one before. There was some discussion about a few plants that were brought, regarding them being poisonous, spreading, and a question of the name of the trees that were that were brought to the exchange.

EMHS September 2022 Newsletter

 

Eastern Michigan Hosta Society
September 2022 Newsletter

Next Meeting is on September 8th, this is the Annual Plant Exchange

Note from the President- Our August tour to Jim Slezinski’s Lake Orion Abode was a surprise treat for those that had never visited his Gardens.   Huge banana trees and many tropical plants dominate the portion of the gardens near the house in the back yard.   Jim has a wonderful collection of rare and unusual conifers as well.   What a beautiful place!

This year has not been the perfect growing conditions for many of us with multiple weeks in a row of no rain.   I have had some tell me that this is the best season they have ever had with their Hosta and that their Hosta are larger this year than ever before.   It just depended on which rain cells hit which area to give some much-needed rain.   That being said, there is a Plant Exchange in two weeks that if you have not dug and potted anything to bring to the Exchange, you better do it ASAP.   The plants brought to the Exchange need to be settled into the pot for a while or you will be bringing a distressed plant.  

The September meeting is the Annual Plant Exchange and remember, please, no Ostrich Fern, Houttuynia, Painter’s Pallet, Bishop’s Weed, or any other invasive plant.   The exchange is also not limited to plants.  Garden ornaments, garden tools, birdhouses, etc. are welcome.  Please bring something to put into the Exchange. 

This year the Plant Exchange drawing will be drawn totally at random.    Every current paid membership gets one chance in each round of the Exchange.   You can pay your $5.00 annual dues before the drawing if you are not current or want to join the club.   We will also have the $5.00 table where special plants will be placed so when your name is drawn you can choose a plant from the open exchange or you can give $5.00 to Cathy and choose a plant from the $5.00 special plant area.   Once every membership has had a turn in the first round, we will start a second round drawn at random again.   This process continues until no plants are left.  

Another thing to remember is that we ask each member to stay until the end of the exchange and take any plants they brought to the exchange that were not taken during the exchange.    At every Plant Exchange there are plants left that a few of us have to load into our own vehicles and dispose of them.  

We will be having a potluck at 5:00 PM for those that want to participate.   For those that do not want to participate in a potluck you can arrive at 6:00 PM when we will start the Annual Meeting.   The meeting portion will include a Treasury update, Minutes from our last group meeting, and a time for any issues that members want to discuss.   The Plant Exchange will begin at 6:30 PM.        

I look forward to seeing you at the Suncrest Pavilion in Lapeer on September 8th.  

Sincerely,

Glen Pace
EMHS President

 

Next Meeting- Our next meeting will be on September 8th, 2022 from 5:00 PM until the Pavilion is cleaned up after the Plant Exchange at the Suncrest Pavilion in Lapeer.   The address is 1455 Suncrest Drive, Lapeer, MI 48446.   The Pavilion is at the back of the Suncrest Nursing Facility.   For any that have never been to the Display Garden at Suncrest, be sure to arrive early to tour the gardens.   The Potluck will begin at 5:00 PM for those that want to participate.   The Annual Meeting will begin at 6:00 PM.   We will start the Plant Exchange drawing at 6:30 PM. 

Calendar of Events for 2022-

            Sept 08- Plant Exchange at Suncrest of Lapeer
