Designing with Palms
Monday, July 9 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
The palm tree is so iconic that we can lose sight of the varied uses of palms in creating lovely gardens and landscapes. Jason will share his expertise in the power of palms in garden design, their appeal to the senses, and their use in creating garden styles. He will also present basic information gardeners and designers need to know about the diverse palm family, including a portfolio of useful hardy palms and tropical staple species. Come see why the beauty and diversity of palms, from delicate understory plants and hardy shrubs to graceful trees and even bamboo-like clusters, earn them a place in well-designed gardens throughout the warmer parts of the world—including California.
Jason’s book, Designing with Palms, will be available for purchase at the meeting.
Monday, August 13 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Plumeria expert, Mike Atkinson, shares his knowledge on growing and propagating the many varieties of plumerias that thrive in our Mediterranean climate.
Plumerias LOVE San Diego! Often thought to be native to Hawaii, plumerias are actually native to southern Mexico, Central America and South America. Their low-maintenance, low-water, and amazing blooms and fragrances make them the ideal complement to our Southern California gardens. Mike will show the various types of plumerias, explain their fertilization needs, which plants make good companions in the garden, and advice on their general care and selection.
