DIAGNOSIS TUESDAY

Bring Your Plant Problem and Your Problem Plant for a Diagnosis and Group Prescription

Plants get sick too! Got an issue with a plant that simply won’t thrive? Bring it in for a check-up at our upcoming meeting on Tuesday, November 7, 2017 at 7:00PM..

Diagnosis Tuesday

If you’re at a loss on what to do about that ailing azalea or "Ruby Blush" echeveria languishing away on your window sill—let us help you analyze and fix the problem. Even if it’s too late to help a specific plant, a diagnosis and solution may be critical in helping to save other plants.

Do you have an unknown plant you need identified? Perhaps it was a garden surprise sown by birds or the wind. Perhaps that succulent you got as a gift or purchased from your local nursery was minus an identifying label.

Walk away with a prescription for your plant issue. Don’t miss our next meeting!

See you in the "Garden Room" at the Veterans Memorial Complex on Tues, November 7 at 7:00 PM!

Meeting: Tuesday, Nov 7, 2017 at 7:00 PM | 4117 Overland Ave, Culver City, CA 90230

Past Garden Excursions

We’ve got a few photos from some of our previous garden adventures

We love our gardens! Equally so, we love visiting the gardens of other gardening enthusiasts. These adventures are the perfect gateways to ideas, tips and inspiration for our own gardens. Below are just a few examples of photos taken by some of our garden hoppers on past excursions.

Speaker
The low maintenance, drought tolerant Variegated Century Plant defines this garden. Yellow stripes stretched along blue-green pointed leaves make it a visually stunning accent. After 8-10 years a large fast-growing flower stalk shoots out of it's center. It then dies but at it's base multiple pups emerge to replace the mother in a renewed cycle.

The Blue agave plant was a standout in this garden. Yes, it serves as the base ingredient for tequila.

Garden Tour 2013. Their was an art surprise around every corner in this garden
Garden Hop 2013

This whimsical garden left everyone smiling

Speaker
Beautiful but stinky—the stapelia is a master trickster. In it's bid for pollination, the Stapelia masquerades as a delectable food source for blow flies, who love the odour of rotten flesh. The flies are unwittingly deceived into believing the flower is an ideal place to lay their eggs. The little maggots pay the ultimate price and starve. The flower like most desert blooms survives only 2-3 days.

Speaker
Garden Hop 2013. We're scheduled for a revisit of this garden on this Autumn tour. New fun surprises await you. Don't miss it! Hint: Halloween is just around the corner.

Mel's Garden

Speaker
Blue Stick or Blue Finger succulents (Senecio mandraliscae). This succulent typically crawls along the ground creating a dense mat that can hide almost any sin. But isn't it even more dramatic and eye-catching climbing up a tree!
