All About African Violets – Episode 3.045 – Meet Ken Muzalewski

Welcome to My Sunroom!

It’s been quite a couple of weeks . . .

  • I retired early!
  • The coronavirus that causes COVID-19 has gained a strong foothold in the United States. Illinois is taking things very seriously, and many residents, myself included, are practicing social distancing at this time. Everyone is washing their hands even more than before, and seriously trying to avoid face touching, which seems very challenging to accomplish – you’ll see me do it at least three times in this episode.

In this episode we’re going back to National 2019 to meet Ken Muzalewski, the hybridizer of the Hunter’s series of African violets.

Ken’s violets are available during the shipping season on eBay.  His eBay seller name is:  “piercedm
