    • Apparently just happened Saturday. I just found out today. Searched the news media, nothing. I’m willing to bet more will come. Thoughts and prayers. You WILL be missed Dr. Bonnie Appleton. Someone is gonna have to pick up the slack…

  2. Not only am I stunned by her passing, I am shocked at the lack of mention, ANYWHERE.
    Such a huge loss for our industry! Nobody I’ve asked has heard a word about this??! How?

    Imagine my surprise when I read your subject line.

  4. I am just finding out in OCT! My crew and I attended just one of her classes on bare rooting of nursery stock and were so inspired, from that point on it was the only way we would plant. What a loss. She will be missed and there are some very BIG shoes to fill.
