WORKSHOP Create a California Native Garden: Ready-Set-Go!


We invite you to join the California Native Plant Society-San Diego Chapter for a special day of speaker presentations from experts in the field of California native gardening. Our Garden Tour this past April presented numerous examples of long-established California native gardens and other gardens that were in-the-making. Now we follow that up with a thorough introduction to the process of putting together a California native garden. Whether you have been inspired to plant your first native garden or already have an established garden, this workshop will offer solid insight into getting it right. We have scheduled this workshop just in advance of the best season of the year to plant a California native garden.

LEARN HOW TO

-Design a California Native Plant Garden: Scoping your site for exposures, landscaping considerations, soils and drainage, and choosing an aesthetic.
-Plant Selection: Finding the specific native plants that will thrive in your climate and particular garden environment. Using online tools to help you select.
-Planting, Watering, and Mulching: An expert panel will explain the techniques and answer your questions.
-Maintenance and Evaluation: Pruning, weed and pest control, shaping your aesthetic, and how to evaluate what is going right or wrong with your garden.

DATE

Saturday, September 8, 9:00am

DETAILS
