Many of our existing clients are gardeners at heart. We encourage them & you to visit Balboa Park, Room 101 Casa del Prado this Saturday, June 18th from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm. The Master Gardeners, are having a plant sale. They've made it convenient and easy. Park in nearby lots and take a free tram to the sale. There is a plant holding area provided & a drive-up zone for plant pick-up.
What to expect:
1) A wide variety of plants for sale at great prices. Choose from natives, tropicals, staghorn ferns, bromeliads, heirloom and unusual veggies, fruit trees, bulbs, herbs, succulents, annuals and perennials.
2) A 'garden marketplace' section where you can shop for hand-crafted bird houses, protective gauntlets, hypertufa pots, crystal totems, tool sharpeners and more! FYI: A Hypertufa pot is a planter, made of peat, river sand & cement, that is an attractive alternative to a concrete or stone planter. They are suitable for many types of plants and are particularly good for cacti, sedum, and succulents. They instantly looks aged and have a natural look to compliment plants and shrubs in the garden. Hypertufa pots are very plant friendly—the bulky and porous wall thickness acts as a reservoir for water. Their porousness allows for easy passage of air to the root system.
3) Q&A: Get answers to garden questions from the Master Gardeners. They are a group of volunteers trained and supervised by the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE). They also have an exhibit at the Del Mar fair on pest control.
Torrey Pines Landscape Company applauds the Master Gardeners and their efforts to continue learning and their ceaseless dedication to help other gardeners grow.
