56th Annual Convention of The Gesneriad Society

Plant Sales Procedures

The plants available for sale at convention come from commercial vendors, our members and from chapters, who may participate as donors or vendors. Chapters participating as vendors can raise funds for their own coffers. An invitation to participate as either a donor or vendor is extended to all Gesneriad Society members who adhere to the following guidelines. Any amount of donated plant material is greatly appreciated. Donated plants do not need to be priced in advance, although it would be helpful. All potted plants for sale should be well rooted, clearly labeled and insect/disease free. Rhizomes, tubers, cuttings, and stolons in labeled plastic bags are also welcome. All individuals, chapters, and vendors putting plants into the sale are expected to volunteer in the sales room for several hours during convention. Plants are dual tagged to ensure that sellers receive proceeds from their plants, buyers go home with correctly named plants, and the sales process is efficient.


DONORS:
Each plant must be labeled, with its name printed clearly on a WHITE plant label placed securely in the pot. Growers are requested to place their name on the back of the plant identification label. Please use a complete plastic label in each pot, not ones cut into smaller pieces. Label cuttings, rhizomes, tubers and bagged plants by clearly printing the plant name on the bag or on a WHITE plant label securely attached to the bag using tape. Alternatively, place a plastic label inside the bag.
     
VENDORS
: To be considered a vendor (commercial, chapter, or individual) at convention (and receive a portion of the sales revenue) you must bring a minimum of 50 plants. Each plant must be labeled, with its name printed clearly on a WHITE plant label placed securely in the pot. On a separate brightly COLORED plant label, show the price and seller's identification. Place BOTH labels on the same side of the pot facing out. It will help if the price label is longer than the name label. Price cuttings, rhizomes, tubers and bagged plants by attaching a brightly COLORED label with the price and seller's identification. Attach the price label separately from the name label using tape. Please do not staple pricing labels to bags.
     
If you plan to donate and/or sell plants at convention, please inform the Plant Sales Chair as soon as possible. Send your name, address, and the ID and label color (example: "M.G." on blue label) you will use on your labels to Mel Grice or mail to Mel Grice, 2019 Crosswind Court, Englewood, OH 45322. Proceeds from plant sales are mailed to vendors after the convention.
     
All plants should be delivered to the plant sales storage area by Wednesday evening of the convention. If you plan on arriving later, please contact Mel Grice to make alternate rrangements.
