38th Annual Meeting Southern Region IPPS

The International Plant Propagators' Society, Southern Region of North America (IPPS-SR), are joined together by a common interest in the propagation of plants. "To Seek and to Share" is our motto, as we seek new propagation ideas, new propagation techniques and new plants. We enthusiastically share that which we learn. Ultimately, through our interactions with one another, we strive to increase our plant propagation knowledge. With this knowledge we hope to increase profitability in our industry and to beautify the landscape for this and future generations. The 2013 IPPS-SR Conference will be held at The University of Georgia Hotel & Conference Center and features two days of tours (including McCorkle Nurseries, Dudley's Nurseries, James Greenhouse, Mike Dirr garden, Southeastern Growers, Specialty Ornamentals, Griffith Propagation, UGA Trial Garden, and State Botanical Garden of Georgia). There will also be a distinguished lineup of speakers for a day and a half of educational programming.
