The Nursery is on the south side of the road just after the 25 mph sign as you enter Guatay. Look for prominent white fencing on the right; the next property to the east is the nursery. Lori has a large selection of native and drought resistant plants which grow well in our climate. This is always a fun visit where you can see the plants, feel and smell the plants and if you wish, buy the plants. For more info on her Nursery go to: www.sandiegonativeplants.com. She has a very nice web site with lots of photos and information. June Marks the beginning of the Descanso Garden Club fiscal year. Each year the club members are requested to renew their club membership. Out of the membership fee of $15 the club pays for the annual yearbook and club expenses. Also paid are dues to the parent organization California Garden Cubs and the Palomar District which provides services in the form of tax exemption filing status, insurance coverage and educational activities.

Please do not donate cactus and succulents as they do not sell well and are difficult to dispose of! This sale funds all our activities for the year and it is important we have a great selection. Garden Crafts such as wind chimes, bird houses, bird feeders and other garden art as well a baked goods will be a welcome addition to our plant sale. The plant sale will occur on the same day as the Friends of the Library’s Rummage Sale. We will be in the Library garden and pavilion, like we were last year. There will be no June Club meeting as the plant sale takes a lot of our time and energy. ADOPT A HIGHWAY In honor of the Annual Great American Cleanup, Club members picked up roadside trash on April 23. Though it was cold and a bit rainy we powered though and made an impact to keeping our roadside clean.
