Oak Open Day in Belgium on the 22nd of September

Yesterday, 22nd of September, nearly 30 oak enthusiasts gathered at Pavia nurseries, an outstanding nursery owned and run by Dirk Benoit, past IOS board member.  After a presentation about propagation by grafting, we spent quite some time in the nursery fields and in the greenhouse examining the many oaks Dirk has to offer.  Some even brought some acorns and set up a mini seed give-away.
