[Proposed] PRA in South San Diego County

Recommended Posts

DoomsDave

I have a couple weeks off (from work) starting on Monday, 12-19-16.

I won't be leaving town in the grand sense, but staying close to home.

But not that close!

I'd like to visit some gardens in South San Diego County over the next week, and meeting with Palm Talkers and others.

I'm thinking of Monday 12-19 to Tuesday 12-20 and, maybe even Wednesday 12-21.

Maybe stay in motel or other(?) and sample sane or in- nightlife?

If interested, let me know what dates are good via PM.

If there's plants you have to sell, tell me; if there's something you like, let me know. I might have one. Or more. I have seeds, too, up the [insert bodily opening/cavity/other space] to give away. Still. Archies! (And others!)

Make this a holiday to remember!

      I saw a picture on Google of these palms, then I looked at them on street view, and I can't figure out what they are. Does anyone know?

      Say-it-ten-times-fast . . .
      Yesterday's PSSC meeting in Poway, CA was a rip-roarin' success, so I heard. For various reasons, I missed much of it, so maybe you who did make it there can provide a few visual and narrative highlights?
      I did get there, really late (like I hope for my own funeral) and I hear tell it was quite the event, even (especially?) before I got there.
      Thanks to @Josh-O, @BS Man about Palms, @daxin and others who attended, included @Darold Petty who came on down from San Francisco for the fun in the sun.

      PSSC JULY MEETING SATURDAY, JULY 21, 2018
      TWO GARDENS IN LA JOLLA, CA
      NEITHER PREVIOUSLY TOURED
      POTLUCK LUNCH, BRING A DISH
      Our next meeting of the PSSC will be Saturday, 21 July, 2018. Both gardens are in La Jolla (an area of San Diego) and neither has ever been toured by our group.
      The first garden is at the Home of Mark Tarpin. Mark had this to say about his love for palms and the garden:
      "I started growing rare palms, tropical fruits and tropical flowers in approximately 1984. My collection did not become extensive until I moved into my current residence which I have been in
      for approximately 30 years. After traveling to many tropical countries I wished I could come back to San Diego and reproduce what I saw. Very few people were growing these types of products
      but after reaching out to the palm society presidents past and present, rare fruit society presidents and orchid growers I have managed to accumulate a beautiful combination of palms, flowers and fruits. I have aproximately 20 species of palms and 8 to 10 species of cycads. I also have over 50 species of orchids most which are mounted to trees. In addition approximately 10 to15 different types of rare fruits and ferns are sprinkled into my garden."
      The second garden is at the home of Peter and Judy Jol. Peter had this to say about his garden:
      "In 1990 I started planting palms in our first home in the Clairemont district of San Diego. But, this home was no longer large enough with our two young children. So, in 1995 we moved into our
      second home in the Mt Soledad area. But, my interest in the palm started at the first home while working with a friend at SDGE. He has a beautiful palm garden in Vista and after seeing it for the
      first time, I was completely hooked! Most of my palms were planted at the Mt. Soledad property. Some of the more interesting palms include Archontophoenix Alexandrae, Burretiokentia hapala,
      Burretiokentia dumasai, Dypsis leptocheilos, Hyophorbe lagenicaulis, Pinanga Coronata, Chambeyronia Macrocarpa “Water Melon”, Sabal mauritiiformis/yapa, Rhopalostylis purple crown
      shaft and Sapida. All are large mature palms now and over 20 years old. I think my favorite is the Hyophorbe lagenicaulis which has approximately 6’ of clean trunk, a beautiful crown shaft, and 5 to 6 arching leaves. Planted against a south facing side of our home, it receives all day full sun and radiant heat. It sees very little frost if any during our mild winters and has grown to near
      perfection. It flowers constantly and has produced viable seed. You will also see Plumeria cultivars, a few cycads and some Heliconias."
