Coming Events

April Meeting

Growing Indoor Plants Outdoors
in the San Francisco Bay Area

Monday, April 15, 2019 – 7:00 pm
SF County Fair Bldg – 1199 9th Ave, San Francisco

Don’t take anything for granted about cold tolerance. Many plants from tropical and subtropical regions can tolerate chilly temperatures bette than we expect. Alan La Vergne grows sinningias (family Gesneriaceae), cacti, orchids, and begonias outdoors. A few die in winter, but most survive. The only way we can discover what they can take is to experiment.

Annual Award Meeting & Potluck Dinner

Monday, May 20, 2019 – 7:00 pm
SF County Fair Bldg – 1199 9th Ave, San Francisco

Featuring the Cal Hort “Horticulturist of the Year,” Kristin Yanker-Hansen
“You Can’t Grow That in Danville!” Although Danville, California, is still considered to be a Mediterranean climate, the temperatures are more extreme, which changes the palette of plants that can be grown. Kristin will talk about the plants that she has grown successfully, including “temperates” and “tropicals.”

  • Come at 5 p.m. to help with flower arrangements and set up.
  • Bring your favorite dish—enough to serve eight—along with a serving utensil, your own place setting and a beverage (alcohol is not permitted).
  • Bring your unusual and choice plants for the Silent Auction.

RSVP required by Friday, May 17 to calhortsociety@gmail.com using “Annual Dinner” in the subject line.
