Sunday night’s Welcome Reception at the Hickory Museum of Art
That’s just a taste of what the 2014 conference has to offer.
We the members of the International Plant Propagators’ Society, Southern Region of North America, are joined together by a common interest in the propagation of plants. “To Seek and To Share” is our motto, as we “seek” new propagation ideas, new propagation techniques and new plants. We enthusiastically “share” that which we learn. Ultimately, through our interactions with one another, we strive to increase our plant propagation knowledge. With this knowledge, we hope to increase profitability in our industry and to beautify the landscape for this and future generations.
