Good afternoon, Growers,
The first workshop in Southern California for 2008 was given this morning at Laguna Hills Nursery http://www.lagunahillsnursery.com/ (at their new temporary location) at 71 Auto Center Drive, Foothill Ranch, 92610. It was great to see the Mc Faddens, Diane and Jack, and the Lycettes, Bill, Val and their daughter Carol, all the way from Seattle, and Farmer John sporting the bright orange, limited-edition, 2007 Pumpkinmania T-shirt in the pictures above. (It's a great-looking and eye-catching T-shirt, no?)
The enthusiastic, overflow workshop attendees asked some excellent questions and shared some of their own growing experiences. Gary Matsuoka, the owner of Laguna Hills Nursery, even granted a 10% discount on soil amendments, fertilizer, seed germinating mix, and any other supplies the workshop attendees thought they might need.
Next week is the next workshop, Saturday, April 12, 10:00 a.m., Blue Hills Nursery, http://www.bluehills.com/, 16440 Whittier Boulevard, Whittier, 90603!
