The San Diego County Superbloom

The San Diego County Superbloom

with Jim Bishop
Monday, March 15, 2021

In 2019 Southern California experienced a wildflower superbloom and it was much more than just California poppies. Jim and his partner Scott set out to view as much of it as possible between January and July, spanning 25 sites from the deserts, mountains, inland valleys to the coast.

Though Jim Bishop spent 28 years in the software industry, “…my first love has always been been plants, gardening, and gardening design”. He finally “found his people” when he attended the very first meeting of the San Diego Horticultural Society (SDHS) in 1994. Jim went on to served on the SDHS board for two years before assuming the Presidency. He held that position from 2012-2018. In 2019 Jim was named the SDHS Horticulturist of the year. His blog, My Life with Plants, (mylifewithplants.blogspot.com) documents some of his travels and past gardening experiences.
