We had a wonderful program: Tim Miller spoke on “Managing Weeds in Peonies”, Andrea Garfinkel shared her research on “Foliar Nematodes and Other Emerging Peony Diseases”, a walking site tour of the facilities was led by Dr. Gary Chastagner, “Update on Foliar Disease Management Studies” was presented by Dr. Gary Chastagner, and Lore Sampson spoke about “Understanding the Flower Classification as designated for showing at the APS flower show”, the day also included a great buffet luncheon and time to talk amongst other fellow peony lovers, and growers.
The American Peony Society board of directors have approved the Pacific Northwest Peony Society as the host for the 2018 APS National Convention. We encourage you to attend and enter your own flowers into the flower show, we also solicit your help with hosting the convention, volunteers are needed for all sorts of different tasks. APS membership is needed to attend and enter into the flower show.
