    Many species of plants from South Africa, especially bulbs, are well-suited to southern California gardens. Amaryllis, Gladiolus, and Freesia are well-known for bringing floral cheer to the home garden, but there are numerous lesser-known beauties such as Albuca, Ferraria, Lachenalia, and Babiana, that are favored for their distinctive and captivating blossoms.

    On Saturday, December 1st, from 9 - 11 a.m., Tom Glavich will reveal his secrets of successfully growing these exotic bulbs. On a recent journey to South Africa, Tom photographed many species in-habitat. He will introduce us to thees wild beauties and also to home-grown charmers from his nursery collection.

    An accomplished grower of bulbs, succulents and bromeliads, Tom is also the author of 'The Beginner's Guide to Haworthia, Agave, and other Succulent Monocots' as well as numerous newsletter articles for local cactus and succulent clubs. He expresses his creative talents through ceramics and plant illustrations.
