We are excited to offer something new and different for dividends this year. As requested by you, our members, we made a larger investment in a specimen plant — a clematis vine! We will have large-flowering varieties in a mix of colors. The dividend also includes 3 Oriental lily bulbs.
Perry provided this Spring Dividends 2019 document that describes the Climbing Clematis and bonus Oriental Lily bulbs in this year’s dividend.
Purchasing Additional Clematis
Additional Clematis are available at $13 each. As usual, we will have extra plants for sale to members. We will have a good number of additional clematis for sale at $13 each. These are quart plants with 6-8″ of growth, with a small trellis. Bring a check or cash to the meeting if you are interested. We will not have any extra lily bulbs for sale.
If you won’t be at the meeting
If possible, please ask another member who lives near you to pick up your dividends for you. Otherwise, we will save one and contact you after the meeting for pickup instructions.
If you don’t want your dividends
If for some reason you don’t want yours, please let Perry know before the meeting (see your member list or the spring dividend email for her contact info). If we know you don’t want your dividends, we will sell them to raise additional funds for The Gardeners Exchange.
“THE COMPLETE CLEMATIS GROWING GUIDE: EASY TIPS FOR PLANTING, PRUNING, AND PRODUCING MASSES OF FLOWERS” from the Gardeners Path blog is a comprehensive article describing how to plant and care for your clematis.
