PSSC SEPTEMBER MEETING
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2019
THREE GARDENS CLOSE BY IN ENCINITAS, CA
TWO GARDENS ACROSS THE STREET FROM EACH OTHER
POTLUCK LUNCH AND PLANT AUCTION - BRING A DISH

Our next meeting of the PSSC will be Saturday, 21 September, 2019.  All three gardens are in Encinitas, a coastal community about 25 minutes north of San Diego off Freeway 5.  All three are fantastic gardens with lots to see.  The first two gardens are across the street from each other. 

The first garden is at the Home of Dorian Ouer.  Many of you may know Dean Ouer, Dorian’s father and the present moderator of Palm Talk.  Dean started his garden almost three decades ago.  His son, Dorian, who grew up at this home and garden, promptly increased his interest and passion for the garden.  Since his acquiring the garden in 2005, Dorian has made many improvements and added a lot of new and different plants.  Some his favorite palms include towering Ceroxylons with white trunk way overhead, a majestic Dypsis species Black Stem, old Ravenea glauca and the super rare “Ravenea monticola”.  You’ll also see many mature Dypsis species, mature Rhopalostylis, Schizolobium and Enterolobium trees side by side, cycads and a vast assortment of tropical plants.  This is a “don’t miss” garden!  He will have a bathroom available and the Board of Directors meeting will meet early at Dorian’s home. 

The second garden is directly across the street from the Ouer Garden at the home and garden of Scott and Trina Leonard.  This is a good sized garden and you’ll even see an area dedicated to his “tropical fruit orchard”.  But, Scott’s main interest is with his palms.  Some of his favorites in the garden include beautiful blue Bismarckia nobilis, an assortment of unusual Dypsis, Chambeyronia, Rhopalostylis, Pritchardia species and a vast assortment of other nice palms and trees.  I can vouch that you’ll love the variety and beauty of this garden.  Others have mentioned the unbelievable speed of growth that Scott has achieved with everything he’s planted.  You may want to ask him how he does it.  There are definitely a ton of botanic gems to see.

The third garden is just across Freeway 5, just about a half of mile going east, at the home and garden of Matt and Grace Beltran.  This is a somewhat newer garden with a vast array of planting and hardscape improvements.   Of note you can only park on the south side of Spart street as the other side is closed for parking.  Matt’s garden has a definite tropical theme.  You can see his enthusiasm in planting desirable palm species.  His favorites include Dypsis leptocheilos, assorted Pritchardia including a nice hildebrantii as well as P. remota, affinis and martii.  He also loves his Chambeyronia, Cyphophoenix, Kentiopsis, Ravenea glauca, Dypsis species and lots of assorted tropical plants.  Bathroom is available.  This is the garden where we’ll have our potluck and auction.

So, who's coming?

The Ouer garden alone is worth the trip.

Come visit and see if I'm wrong. @Dypsisdean used to have that one! Need I say more?

I'm coming.  Saw Dean's Hawaii garden a couple of months ago.  So, only makes sense to see his former SoCal garden.

Took me 10 years, but I managed to see both of Dean’s garden gardens this summer.  Neither of them disappointed.  Dorian has “picked up the torch” and added his own touch.  

Standing in the middle of the garden. With all that canopy from the palms and Schizolobium parahyba made me feel like I was in a jungle and not Encinitas.

I’m bummed that I missed this. I was busy prepping my Fallbrook house to put on the market this coming week and just couldn’t get away.

Was hoping to run into you.  There was a strong Palmtalk presence today.
