Sorry guys, I’m not going to make it. I can visit Selby for free in a few weeks so I’ll just wait until then... Plus, @Chatta will probably give us all the coronavirus. :bummed:

Will miss you @RedRabbit!

For those planning on attending, you may want to bring a jacket.  There should be plenty of sun, but the morning and evening temperatures might feel a little chilly with winds coming out of the NNE at 17mph.

@Palmaceae It will be good to see you again when you do.  The Summer meeting is scheduled for Leu Gardens in Orlando, FL in June.  We're hoping to have presentations on fertilizer and lethal bronzing after a garden tour in the morning (before it hits 95 degrees).

I did forget to mention how nice it was to have @cycadjungle at the gardens with so many different cycads around and coning.

For those who were hunting for Foxy Lady palms, there was one in the auction... you missed it ;)

For those awaiting photos, here is a link to some photos from Marie Selby Botanical Gardens:
