We will begin in the Toledo Botanical Garden's Conference Center with a short business meeting at 1PM. This will be followed by snack and beverages, and then our guest speaker's presentation.
John Hric, Daylily Hybridizer from North East Ohio Garden, Cleveland, OH, will present “MY JOURNEY TO BECOMING A DAYLILY HYBRIDIZER”.
John and his wife Susan live on the west side of Cleveland, where they’ve been gardening since 1976. Over the years, they transitioned from vegetable gardening to perennials, introducing daylilies into the garden in 1996.
A relatively new hybridizer, John started doing crosses around 2003. To date, he’s expanded his garden to include around 600 daylilies and has registered 30 new ones.
John provides a good example of a hobbyist hybridizer, just having a lot of fun. One of his registrations is named, ‘She Who Must Be Obeyed’. He has a sense of humor!!
This program is free and open to the public. Parking at TBG is also free.
