Introduction to Growing CA Native Plants
Saturday, September 13 | 9:30 – 11:30am
Calling all apartment dwellers and novice CA plant lovers. Do you you love Native CA plants but don't know which ones are a good match for you? In this workshop we will explore which ones are easy to grow, which are low maintenance, which retain their beauty, and which work well in containers.
Take a tour through the Museum's Nature Gardens to learn what the plant's needs are, soil types, irrigation, when and how to plant. Learn tips on growing ones that are excellent alternatives to non-native plants and which will beautify your landscape. The workshop will prepare you for your fall planting season, before you purchase them.
