Regal Pelargoniums Overflow Basket
Lightweight Artistic Creations for the Garden
Next Meeting: Tuesday, September 8 at 7:00 pm.
Rm 101, Casa del Prado, Balboa Park
Jack Ohmstede will lead a workshop in making garden creations from Hypertufa, a mix of peat moss, perlite, and portland cement. The results will be any shape you want to use in your garden: pots, troughs, bowls, whatever. You can even use fabric and make graceful draped art forms to hightlight an area that needs a focal point. The mix will be provided; you bring any forms you want to use. You can also buy pots from George to use as forms if you would like. Bring a friend or neighbor. Guests are welcome!
Welcome to the San Diego Geranium Society - Attend a meeting and learn about us!
Flower Bowl in Desert
If people can grow colorful flowers in the desert, we should be able to do so in milder San Diego conditions!
Pelargoniums are drought-tolerant and provide lots of color.
Regal Pelargonium 'Kate Sessions' (a JimZ hybrid named for the 'mother' of Balboa Park gardens)
Did you know that Kate Sessions introduced Jacaranda trees to San Diego? They are native to Central and South America and they brighten Southern California landscapes in summer along with pelargoniums, which will grow well in the filtered shade of the trees.
