Welcome to the Southern California Horticultural Society,
where passionate gardeners meet to share ideas
and learn from each other

On the second Thursday of each month, we invite speakers to present a talk or program about their area of expertise. Admission is free for members, children, and students with ID, and $5 for non-members. Meetings also include expert discussion of plants brought in to the Plant Forum table, and we often have Plant Raffles. Plants, used and new books and magazines are usually for sale at the meetings. For more information about the Society, please see our About SCHS page.

Next Meeting: 
Thursday, December 14, 2017 at 7:00 at Friendship Auditorium

Jerry Robinson of Rainforest Flora on "Bromeliads for the Home Garden"
+ our annual Holiday Party

Bromeliad expert Jerry Robinson of Rainforest Flora will give a presentation on this unusual and colorful group of plants. He will also bring some plants for a Raffle and for sale. (Hint: tillandsias, aka "Air Plants", make great holiday gifts!)

Our annual holiday festivities will include edible treats (please bring something sweet or savory to share with your fellow horticulturists) and the ever-popular "Give-Away Table". This is your chance to give away any garden-oriented items that you no longer need or want. Or you can pick up someone else's former treasure.

For more information and directions to Friendship Auditorium, see our Meetings page.

Our End-of Year fundraising drive starts December 1. For information on how you can help support SCHS, see our Donation Page.
