February Speaker: Dan Hansen

Dan Hansen of Geneva, Florida owner of Ladybug Daylilies, will be the speaker for THS' first regular meeting of the year. Dan's catalog gives a fraction of his advice on growing daylilies: do not tolerate non-performing daylilies, plant shallow, do not over feed, keep pH between 5.0 and 6.5, and talk to each and every plant! More advice and slides of Dan's own introductions as well as some of his garden favorites will be presented. Call Opal Howell at 386-1076 if you would like to go with her to take Dan out to dinner on the Friday evening before the meeting.

The meeting will be on Saturday, February 24th at 10:00 a.m. at the First Baptist Church downtown (the whole block of College, Duval, Park, and Adams). There will be a plant sale and door prizes. As always, members are encouraged to bring an extra daylily for door prizes.

Meeting topics will include the 2001 spring regional and our own daylily show.
