Lau Magner, past president of the Cactus and Succulent Society of Massachusetts, will be the featured speaker. His presentation will include slides of cacti and succulent gardens, as well as information on how it is possible to create a “Little Arizona” garden in a New England backyard. He will share very easy and doable secrets for developing such gardens.
As part of this illustrated presentation, attendees will learn how to design and build a cold hardy cactus garden, what desert plants will thrive in the garden, where to buy the plants, and what to expect as their garden passes through a typical New England year. Magner has explored the vast deserts of the American Southwest to develop his expertise in creating desert gardens and has created his own garden in Norfolk, Massachusetts.
The Franklin Garden Club, founded in 1987, is a member of the Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts.
