Thursday March 2, 2017 from 7 - 9 pm

"Aloes and Agaves in cultivation"

Presented by Jeff Moore

Note the meeting location:

Sky Islands Public High School, 6000 E. 14th Street, Tucson, AZ 85711

This program will follow the flow of Jeff's new book, "Aloes and Agaves in cultivation". There will be a lot of nice images on both genera (and a few of the related genera as well), and the emphasis will be on these plants in cultivation, not habitat. Of course cultivation for me is California, which is different from Arizona, but we'll talk about which plants will survive your climate and which won't. I'm sure I'll learn a bit from the audience on that subject. This book comes from my passion for aloes, and a lesser degree agaves, which I became more enthusiastic about as I put the book together. I combined them in one book as they make similar statements in the landscape, and quite a few aloe nuts also like agaves, and vice versa. I'll talk about the broad differences for those that are new to the succulent club.

Jeff has operated his nursery in Solana Beach for close to 25 years now, and has really enjoyed the book-making process and the opportunity it has given him to travel in California and Arizona to speak with the clubs. He is working on a third book now on soft succulents - aeoniums, echeverias, dudleyas, crassula, sedums, kalanchoes, etc..... Looks good on the computer, and he hopes to have it ready by the end of the year.

Be sure to come and enjoy Jeff's program that will introduce his book and give his insight on the cultivation of aloes and agaves. You may win a great plant, enjoy some refreshments and get your free plant before going home for the evening.
