PLUMERIA WORKSHOP - Saturday August 4, 2007 - Southwest Houston, Texas
We will be hosting our 11th annual Plumeria Workshop in our yard on Saturday August 4, 2007. It will last most of the day. It is a chance for Plumeria enthusiast with many different experiences to get together and swap stories and experiences. This is a chance to have technical discussions and hands on experiences on cultivating Plumeria. Learn how, why and when to cut your Plumeria. Seeds and Soils. Watering and wintering. Fertilizers and pest control. Come to share or come to learn. All are welcome from those who are just interested in Plumeria to those with years of experience. If you are interested in attending please send us an email. About two weeks before the workshop we will email details to all who show an interest. Come by and visit for a few minutes or stay all day.
Note: We have been asked about doing a spring workshop this year (2007). We will have no time this year to do a spring workshop. We are in charge of the 2007 Frangifest II in Singapore and Bali (see Below) and so will take up all our time.

New New Frangifest 2007 will be held in Singapore and Bali, Indonesia from March 24th through April 1, 2007. This is the second Frangifest, the first was held on the Gold Coast of Australia, just South of Brisbane and was organized by the Frangipani Society of Australia. Frangifest 2007 is being organized by us, the Virtual International Plumeria Society. You don't have to be an expert on Plumerias to participate. EVERYONE is invited to attend Frangifest 2007.
