What is our Hosta Tissue Culture Program??
Our BSHDS Hosta Tissue Culture Program is designed to be an educational and learning experience for you as well as for others who can gain from your knowledge and experience in growing hosta from tissue culture.
Sharing your planting medium, fertilization and watering regimen plus the growing location (morning sun, all shade, etc.) can help others grow robust tissue culture hosta. So that your culture process can be shared with members of our society, you will be expected to pot your hosta in the pot provided by the society, keep a journal (also provided by the society), and bring both the hosta and your journal to at least one society meeting in September or October, or to the Daylily Garden Workshop/Daylily Auction in August.
To be eligible for a hosta tissue culture plant this spring, your dues must be paid prior to March 31, 2018, you need to attend our April 28th meeting, and if you participated in the program last year-you must have brought back your specimen of H. ‘Pure Heart’ last fall for comparison.
Have you paid your 2018 dues? If not, your membership expired December 31st! The dues are still $10 per year. Checks made payable to “BSHDS” can be sent to our treasurer, Jim Flannery, 26009 Willowbend Road, Perrysburg, OH 43551.
