(Video & webinar) Curator’s Garden Tour- Haworthias

Wednesday, May 13, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am

$10.00 – $15.00

Please note that this will be a combination of  a virtual Garden tour (prerecorded) and a live webinar  (offered via Zoom) and not a lecture at the garden. After registration (see below), you will receive further instructions from the Program Coordinator prior to the workshop date. Registration will close on 13 May 2020 at 8am.

Haworthias are very popular with collectors all over the world, and we have quite a few of them at the Ruth Bancroft Garden. Recently, the genus has been divided into 3 genera; although the majority of the species remain in Haworthia, two groups have been split off to make Haworthiopsis (with 18 species) and Tulista (with 4 species).

Part 1:
For the first portion of this workshop, join Brian Kemble (who just celebrated his 40th year at the Garden) in a virtual Garden tour (prerecorded video) where he will feature the Haworthias in the Garden and  show some examples of each of these species as we look at the diversity of forms and textures that can be found in this wonderful group of South African plants.

Part 2:
The second portion of this workshop will be a live zoom webinar on 13 May 2020 at 10-10:30am where Brian will go over the basics of Haworthia plant care and how you can incorporate these unique plants in your own plant collection.


Upon registration, you will receive an email from the Program Coordinator:

  1. A private video link (for the virtual “Curator’s Garden Tour- Haworthias”). The video will be available for viewing for a limited time, during 4-16 May 2020.
  2. A zoom link for the live webinar on 13 May 2020 @ 10am-10:30am.
