NEXT MEETING: November 8, 2016 7:00PM

Under the Spell of Succulents
presented by Jeff Moore

My talk is titled 'Under the Spell of Succulents', which is also the title of my first book. It is a PowerPoint presentation that loosely follows the flow of the book, which is about how we engage with succulents - growers, collectors, landscaping, container/bonsai, specialty niches, etc... It also takes you through the main genera/plant groups. I also discuss briefly how the book came about. The images and some of the tales of the nursery business will keep it entertaining.

I will bring both of my books - although I am down to about 5 volumes of the first book (a new shipment is due within the month), but I will have my new book on aloes and agaves available. I will also bring plants, and can accept credit cards.
