COVID-19 disruption

Corona means crown to me, what that has to do with a virus from China am not sure. Horticulturally speaking, has this pox affected you? If people are staying home more maybe they will spend more time gardening, etc. Let's just hope their time is not completely taken up with out-of-school kids.

Here's how it affects me. For the first time in 34 years the Lahr Symposium @ Nat'l Arboretum is cancelled. A large environmental function called GreenFest in Columbia MD is cancelled. Our local non-profit environmental nursery called Herring Run is closed to the public. This is a major disruption. A lot of good quality plant material AWA money changes hands at events like plant sales. This represents a major financial loss for organizations and vendors/growers alike. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, maybe in a month or two things will be back to normal.
