Think you know African Violets? Think again. The Cincinnati African Violet Society (www.cincyavs.org) and the African Violet Society of Dayton (www.avsdayton.com) will join together to present the 2018 Show and Sale, Saturday and Sunday, April 14-15 (set up starts 9 pm, Friday, April 13) in the Eastgate Mall, Cincinnati, Ohio. (I-275 and St. Rt. 32 in Batavia).
Members of both clubs invest much time and effort cultivating some of the 20,000+ varieties of African violets and their Gesneriad botanical relatives to perfection for the annual African Violet Society of America (www.avsa.org) sanctioned competition. Take one look at the nearly 200 entries and you’ll see today’s plants aren’t your grandmother’s African violets.
The clubs’ intention is to share their excitement for this particular area of the plant world. In addition to viewing some amazing and beautiful plants, hard-to-find varieties and growing supplies will be available for purchase at the sales tables. Dedicated growers will be on hand for one-on-one horticultural consultation and periodic demonstrations will be offered over the 2-day event that runs 10 am to 9 pm on Saturday and 12 noon to 6 pm on Sunday.
