All About African Violets – Episode 3.010 – Suckers and History!


Welcome to my Sunroom

  • Thank you for the star ratings and reviews on FaceBook and also on iTunes.

Tips and Treasures

  • First, a tip!
    • I hope you are subscribing to the AVSA’s weekly growing tip! But I also hope you are a member of the AVSA – one of the new benefits of membership is the “AVSA News for Members” email.
    • Some pretty exciting stuff this time – The Biodiversity Heritage Library, which is one of the Smithsonian Libraries, is now digitizing issues of the AV Magazine! The Smithsonian collection of the magazine is now available online!
    • They don’t have all of them, but what they have is an interesting look back at our African violet history.
    • What’s the BHL? The Smithsonian Libraries is proud to be one of the founding members of the BHL – a consortium of major natural history, botanical, and research libraries that cooperate to digitize and make accessible the literature of biodiversity held in their collections as a part of a global “biodiversity commons.”
  • And now some treasure. I apologize for the quality of this section – I’m clearly STILL getting used to my camera and how does or does not focus . . .
  • But I know you’d like to learn how to remove a sucker – Joyce Stork is the expert!
