The New California Garden PictureJoin Jill Morganelli, the Arboretum’s Horticultural Supervisor, on tours through gardens that demonstrate responsible stewardship for our Southern California landscapes while providing beauty and seasonal interest. Each session will highlight water-maximizing garden construction, installation and site-specific recommendations for irrigation systems, and water-savy landscape horticulture selections from Australia, South Africa, California natives, as well as plants from our water conservation, desert, and many specialty gardens. Design technique, stewardship and habitat building are also discussed. Classes meet in the Rotunda and are held outdoors in all weather.

The spring session emphasizes cool plant choices from our Australian Garden, fruits and vegetables / building raised beds in the Garden For All Seasons and extreme weed control in Rose Garden.  Special emphasis will be placed on shade and fruit trees and how to plant, prune and take care of them as summer approaches.   We will continue the discussion on growing everything you can establish right now as we finish up the spring season.  Soil building, weed control and sustainable techniques will all be covered and, as always, bring lots of questions about your own yard and landscape conundrums.  It promises to be a beautiful day in the gardens!
