It's coming up soon - your once-a-year opportunity to see and purchase African Violets and their many stunning gesneriad "cousins" in varieties that you won't find anywhere else in town!  There will be violets with rose-like flowers, double flowers, frilled flowers, and weird "wasp-shaped" flowers, violets with multi-coloured leaves, miniature violets and huge blooming ones!  There will be streptocarpus (that's one in the poster above), petrocosmeas, sinningias, kohlerias, and so many more unusual but easy-to-grow plants available to purchase.  Come early for the best selection.  On the show tables,  the best plants that Club members have grown for the competition will knock your socks off! 

Admission is free; cash sales only!  See you on May 7!
