All About African Violets – Episode 3.058 – Short and Sweet

Welcome to my Sunroom

Hi Everyone! Come on in and relax for a bit. Fall is definitely here in Chicagoland! This episode is shorter than usual, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing – sometimes you just want a short break in your day :-)

I would like to know if there are any specific African violet-related things that you are interested in. I’m looking at how the podcast might look in the new year and if there are things you would specifically like me to cover, please leave a comment on this post or feel free to contact me through the Contact Us tab on the website!

Tips and Treasures

So glad so many of you enjoyed meeting Anne Nicholas last time! I don’t have a lot to share with you this week, but I am about to start experimenting with a new potting mix! The mix is the “African Violet Mix” that the late John Cook, of Cape Cod Violets, used to sell. Heidi Dillenbeck is now selling this mix as well as John’s Wicking Mix. You can find Heidi’s Enchanted Gardens Plant Supplies on Facebook.

In 2021 the AVSA’s annual convention will be in Atlanta, Georgia.

If you have photos of your plants and/or growing spaces that you’d like to share for the website, now would be an excellent time to send them in.
