(Webinar) Going Gondwanan- Aussie & S. African Plants in Your Garden

Saturday, December 12, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

$10.00 – $15.00

Please note that this will be a live, webinar workshop (offered via Zoom) and not a lecture at the garden.  Due to it’s popularity when we offered this webinar in Spring 2020, we asked Troy McGregor for another round!  After registration (see below), you will receiver further instructions from the Program Coordinator prior to the workshop date. Registration will close on 12 December 2020 at 8am.

Let’s discover some of the best plants from the summer dry regions south of the Equator. Australia and South Africa are biodiversity hot spots with arguably the most unusual and garden-worthy plants on the planet.  (Please excuse the presenter’s bias!)   This presentation will focus on the tried and true performers, the new releases and some rarities that have excelled at the Ruth Bancroft Garden. We’ll cover solutions for shade, sun, slope, screening and some options for gardens with deer.

Troy McGregor, a former nursery manager at the Ruth Bancroft Garden, is the owner of Gondwana Flora as a Landscape Contractor and Nurseryman based in Martinez, CA. He has been growing, selling and installing plants since relocating from Australia to the Bay Area in 2006.
