  • CSUN-al Gardening Series: Remarkable Bulbs to Know and Grow
  • Boophone disticha Port Elizabeth form, T Glavich

    Remarkable Bulbs to Know and Grow
    Tom Glavich, Skyview Succulents
    Saturday, October 31, 2015, 9-11 a.m.

    Albuca, Boophone, Calibanus, Eucrosia, Lachenalia, Ornithogalum, Tricyrtis, Zephyranthes - exotic-sounding names for some of the bulbs that can be grown in southern California. Like cherished friends that arrive with a visual fanfare of blooms, bulbs share their beautiful displays, and then go away. Several months later, the new growth peeking above the soil heralds the return of these dear friends.

    Tom Glavich will introduce some of his beautiful friends and share growing tips to keep them flourishing. An accomplished grower of bulbs, succulents, and bromeliads, Tom is the author of The Beginner's Guide to Haworthia, Agave and other Succulent Monocots. In addition to monthly newsletter contributions, he is the co-chair of the annual Inter-City Cactus and Succulent Show in Arcadia, and is the co-chair of the Research Committee of the Cactus and Succulent Society of America. He expresses his creative talents through his ceramic work and t-shirt designs for the Inter-City Show.
