For the 2017 Lycett Award all ODS members will again have the opportunity to vote online. Entries will be posted here on the ODS website and a link to the ballot will be sent to all ODS members.
Plan now to participate in 2017. Keep your cameras handy to capture your favourite seedling. Two photos are required - first the flower face and second the whole plant (scapes with flower, buds, branching and stem). Also collect statistics on flower size, bud count and scape height.
The Lycett Award will continue to be presented at the Can-Am.
Deadline for entries will be January 14, 2018.
