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: 
Saturday, September 28 at 5:30pm at Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden

SCHS Annual Horticulturist of the Year Award Banquet and Silent Auction, honoring Mike Evans of Tree of Life Nursery

The Southern California Horticultural Society is pleased to honor Mike Evans with the 2019 Horticulturist of the Year award. As the owner of Tree of Life Nursery, Mike Evans has profoundly influenced how Californians think about their gardens. He is a huge advocate for California native plants, and for getting people out of their urban lives and back into nature, even in their own back yards. Please join us in supporting the vision of this forward-thinking horticulturist.
