This will be another active lecture year for Mal. Hydrangeas are an ‘in demand’ genus; commercial production in the USA currently exceeds 22 million plants annually – second only to roses. Given the major introduction of numerous new hybrids, they are now more widely planted in greater numbers and in more geographic locations.
All of Mal’s events are thoroughly informative offering detailed demonstrations, explanations of best practices, sources for necessary components, and informative hand-outs.
