We need all your plants you have in bloom this month for our display, so here is what you can do to have your plants included in our display.

  1. Make a reasonable guess as to which plants will be in bloom that week.
  2. Determine the full name of the plant(s). Plant registration slips were handed out at the last meeting. These need to be completed and given to Jim Gomes on Wednesday October 19th. If you have any questions regarding completing the form, please contact, Jim Gomes via email or phone. (, 626-577-7220). Place one of your address labels on each pot so that your Plant(s) can be returned to you. Keep a list of the plants for yourself.
  3. Bring it (them) to the Huntington, Botanical Bldg. by 12 PM on Wednesday, Oct 19th.  If you can’t bring it/them yourself, please contact Linda Peterson (626-358-8988) or a nearby member early so they may have the plant(s) by Tuesday, Oct. 18, to bring to the show for you.
  4. Arrive at the SGVOH display in the Botanical Bldg. promptly at 5 PM on Sunday, Oct. 23rd, to pick up your plants. If you cannot pick your plant(s) up, please arrange ahead of time for someone else to do so.
