Founded 1994Let's Talk Plants!
2024 Horticulturist of the Year - Jeff Moore
Join us at our new meeting location to honor the SDHS 2024 Horticulturist of the Year, Jeff Moore.
Jeff has owned and operated Solana Succulents, north of San Diego, California, since 1992. It is a small retail specialty nursery, and he carries as much of the rare and unusual as possible, along with more common and colorful succulents. He has written five books - Under the Spell of Succulents, Aloes and Agaves, Soft Succulents, Spiny Succulents, and Agaves - Species, Cultivars and Hybrids.
Jeff's nursery has long been a destination for succulent enthusiasts and lovers of unusual, exotic and water-wise plants. SDHS has frequently hosted Jeff as one of our most popular monthly speakers.
Jeff's HOY award presentation will be followed by a talk given by him on Dudleyas, subject of his next book that will be available March 2024. Dudleyas are rare, native succulents that are best grown from seed. The book is coauthored by Jeremy Spath and Kelly Griffin.
Jeff will be bringing plants to sell and has signed two of his books to be given away to lucky attendees.
Oh! and there will be a reception with cake after the meeting.
Note: This is a members-only, in-person meeting (no Zoom) at our new Rancho Bernardo meeting location at a new date and time (Saturday, January 13).
