What are the cutest and most tempting items at the garden center? Succulents! Master Gardener Judy Hecht, who has been working with succulents for many years, put on a Zoom talk for the Santa Clara County Library District. This talk taught you how to select, care for, and design with succulents, whether you garden in a few containers or a sizable yard.
"Success with Succulents", was presented on Tuesday night, January 19, 2021, 7:00 - 8:30 pm. Go to our Online Events calendar and check for our next Master Gardeners program. They will usually be on the third Tuesday of each month. You will need to register so you can receive the Zoom link. These events will be recorded for later viewing on SCCLD's YouTube channel.
