On the second Thursday of each month, we invite speakers to present a talk or program about their area of expertise. When we are able to hold in-person meetings, 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.

Plant Hormones: Knowing and Managing Them for Better Results
Zoom Webinar with Ernesto Sandoval
Have you ever wondered why your plant has a sudden burst of growth after transplanting? Or how the plant "knows" to grow new parts when pruned or how a cutting knows to make roots? Maybe you’ve even wondered about how a banana knows to ripen or why leaves all of a sudden turn yellow when you bring a plant home?
Find answers to these questions and others about why your plants grow the way they do during this informative yet not so technical presentation by Ernesto Sandoval, Director of the UC Davis Botanical Conservatory.
Lecture and Q&A at 7:30 pm PST / Register now!
In these uncertain times, we hope everyone can find some solace
in the beauty of gardens and nature around us.
The Southern California Horticultural Society condemns violence and injustice toward any person based on race, identity or belief. We strive to be a safe and welcoming space for all plant lovers that is inclusive and accessible to everyone in the Los Angeles area.
In solidarity with people of color, we have made donations to the Equal Justice Initiative and to the University of California Master Gardener Fund for Los Angeles County. We encourage others to support organizations of their choice that are dedicated to ending systemic racism and social injustice.
