Please note this is the third Thursday of the month. Jiri will talk about the design and cultivation of alpines in various types of rock gardens, and also about his experiences with Daphnea and Saxifrages, which are good plants for our local gardens.

He has explored various mountain areas in Europe and Iran, and worked with many of the famed Czech rock gardeners. For non-members, this talk is $10.
