SAVE THE DATE!!!

Central & North Florida Palm and Cycad Society
Holiday Gathering

Saturday, December 8, 2018

11:00am – 3:00pm

Private Garden of Ron Hart & Maryann Krisovitch
6701 Lake Kirkland Drive, Clermont, FL 34714

The Society will provide drinks and the main dish.  Please bring a side or dessert to share.

About the garden:  Ron & Maryann have been members of the society for over 10 years and have also served as President and Treasurer.  They recently moved about 80 of their 170 palms and cycads from their home in Apopka to their new lake house south of Clermont.  While the home is a new place for Maryann, Ron actually built the home 15 years ago. Many of the palms he planted back then are still there and thriving even though he was gone from them for the past 10 years!  You’ll see the struggle the plants are facing since removing plucked from a shady oak canopy half-acre yard to a mostly sunny acre on the lake.

Please R.S.V.P. by the Monday before the meeting to Maryann at palmsocietytreas@aol.com

What you need to bring to the meeting:

  1. A plant for the auction (does not have to be a palm, palm-companions are good too!

  2. Sides or dessert

  3. A chair for your own personal enjoyment!

On behalf of the First Coast International Palm Society ---- I am boycotting this meeting.   They made an attempt to take over our society at the joint IPS chapter meeting ---which the membership rejected -----  Little did we know this was a Trojan horse at the meeting. Why dont they include the SW chapter of the IPS too ?

Hope all attendees had a great time!  Good food, great palms and cycads for sale, wonderful weather, excellent location and fantastic folks made for a great Saturday!  As an added bonus, I got a first-rate cycad education by Tom Broome on my way back.  Here are a couple of photos I took:

      @palmsOrl and myself went over to Largo to see @SWFLchris's operation.  Chris had a large selection of palms that aren't available in your typical big box outlets.  I picked up two Carpentaria acuminata seedlings and a Cryosophila warscewiczii to add to my landscape.  @palmsOrl posted his plunder on this thread in the Discussion forums:
      https://www.palmtalk.org/forum/index.php?/topic/64208-new-palms-a-floribunda-order-and-a-trip-to-see-chris/
      Some of the inventory for this nursery is listed here:
      https://tampa.craigslist.org/pnl/grd/d/largo-rare-palms-huge-selection-of-1/7126808922.html
      A few of my Tampa area friends like @RedRabbit and @Chatta will be happy to know that there is at least one nursery in West Central FL where they can pick up some goodies.  If you're in the Tampa region or don't mind driving over, give Chris a holler.  Highly recommended!
