Anyone interested in a Jacksonville Bromeliad Society?
There have got to be some other hobbyists in the area, because every now and then I do see broms used in landscaping around here, and all the wonderful plantings at the Jacksonville Zoo and Washington Oaks Gardens had to come from someone knowledgable. Our zone lets us grow bromeliads, but it can be hard to get advice on cold hardy species and relevant information on frost protection. I have a collection of hardy aechmeas, bilbergias, neoregelias and vrieseas which would not have been possible without the Gainesville and Seminole chapters plant sales, so it would be nice to trade and share info with local hobbyists. At the very least it would be great to meet other collectors in the area even if there isn't enough interest for a Jacksonville chapter of the bromeliad society. Anyone interested?
