Cacti and Succulents: Jewels of the Home.

Join the Calgary Horticultural Society for this fascinating presentation on the nature and care of these popular house plants by one of Calgary’s plant aficionados, John Ostrowdun (nee Duncan) of greengate Garden Centres. Last year this presentation sold out. This year we’ve moved John’s talk to the CNIB office in Bridgeland 10 11A Street NE). This location can hold three times as many participants as the Society’s meeting room. Many cacti and succulents are native to areas with intense sunlight and warm temperatures, but with the correct care, these plants can be jewels of a Calgary home. Visit the What’s Happening for program information and to register online. Let’s fill the room!

The Growing Journal.

The Society’s journal is a terrific tool to help keep track of your planning and the activity in the garden. The pages are undated, so you can journal at your own pace, without the stress of finishing an annual diary. It’s a great gift for a gardener on any occasion—that special day will be here before you know it! Purchase this gardening resource and support the Society.
