August Meeting
Mike Atkinson
Plumerias

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.

September Meeting
Clayton Tschudy
San Diego Habitat Gardening

Monday, September 10  6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Many good books advocating for the benefits of habitat gardening have recently been published. Some of these resources provide good generalized advice for habitat design, but are overly broad, often without a focus on regional resources. Vibrant habitat design requires a local approach that details indigenous plant and animal species, examines the habitat structure of local plant communities, and addresses how the threats of introduced pests and climate change should be addressed to local resources from the gardener's perspective.


At our September meeting, Clayton Tschudy will give an overview of habitat garden design for the San Diego region, focusing on critical design elements, and some new, and unique, online resources.
  • Doors open at 6 PM with the presentations beginning at 6:45 PM.
  • Free for SDHS Members; $15 Non-members
  • Tickets available at the door. 
  • Free, easy parking at the Congregation Beth Israel, 9001 Towne Centre Dr., San Diego, CA 92122
