Propagation Field Trip to the Huntington Finally Confirmed!
Notes from one of your fellow students. I would like to note that 'donor' is normally referred to as 'scion' and 'receiver' isn't really 'parent' at all, but is usually referred to as 'rootstock.' The terminology isn't just nice, but is integral to the understanding of the process.
It's been a long time coming, and I realize it doesn't work for some folks, but despite my best efforts, this is the time that works for the greatest number of folks (especially our tour leader and guest instructor that day!).
If you wish to carpool, I would suggest you arrange that during break time in class. As a whole class we will meet at The Huntington entrance at 9:00 AM on March 14th.
IF YOU ARE LATE, YOU MAY HAVE DIFFICULTY FINDING US. Also remember that The Huntington isn't really open until 10:00 AM so once we have left the gate area, you might well not be admitted until 10. Get there early, keep my cell phone number on hand just in case.
The address to The Huntington is in your syllabus as is my phone number.
