A New Start To A New Year
A new start to the new year, by becoming a Fallbrook Garden Club member. When possible, members give their time by volunteering to the Club to benefit the garden community.
Message from the Club's Co-Presidents, Judy Loser and Norma Gomez, in part .....
".... as a club, we are part of a powerful hierarchy of a State and a National Garden Club. We follow established goals that include horticulture, conservation, and community outreach. You may already have learned about some of our projects from attending a meeting, viewing our website or Facebook page, or reading the descriptions in your directory.
Make your membership meaningful by volunteering a portion of time and energy to help with any of our activities or committees. We welcome you and are eager to support you in your choices. Experienced members are happy to provide ideas and information to assist you. That is an essential part of the teamwork that we promote in the garden club."
Native Plant of the Month
Giant Chalk Dudleya, also known as Britton Dudleya, is a very dramatic, luminous succulent that is native to the coastal cliffs of northwestern Baja California. It is prized for its striking 12 to 18 inch wide rosette of chalky-white fleshy leaves. In spring, a 1 1⁄2 to 2 1⁄2 flower stalk arches upward and turns a dark red as the pale yellow flowers open. Giant Chalk Dudleya makes a perfect accent in a well-drained rock garden or in containers. Plant in well-drained soil in full sun on the coast and with part shade inland. It will look best if they are kept dry in the summer months. Plants grown in sandy soil or in containers will accept summer water as long as the soil drains well. Dudleyas in pots prefer clay con- tainers as this allows their roots to “breathe”. When planting in the ground, place the plant at a slight angle to prevent water from collecting in the rosette.
FYI, you can order natives online at Moosa Creek Nursery and ask them to deliver to Grangetto’s here in Fallbrook.
