Virtual Show this Year
The Fallbrook Garden Club has canceled its 2020 Flower Show due to the COVID -19 pandemic.
At the same time, this is the time of year when our community and our Garden Club Members have gardens in bloom with flowers and healthy plants. We all love to share the beauty of our flowers and to see the success of other gardeners, and this is the age of social media and creativity.
Therefore, the Fallbrook Garden Club cordially invites you to join us in a Virtual Flower Show.
Here's a list of some of our recent programs:
- Attracting Birds & Butterflies
- Culinary Herbs
- Designing with Succulents
- Frugal Gardening Tips
- Good Bugs in the Garden
- Gourmet Gardening
- European Roses
- Holiday Floral Designs
- Landscaping with Natives

Of Special Note
In 1994 the club placed a Blue Star Byway Marker in the Village Square (just behind the flag pole) in the center of the Fallbrook Veteran's Honor Roll Wall. It is one of 16 memorials and markers in San Diego County. For information on the Blue & Gold Star Memorial program go to Blue Stars.
