Succulent Saturday at Waterwise BotanicalsJoin us on Saturday, September 8 for a field trip to Waterwise Botanicals Succulent Saturday in Bonsall for our Desert Horticultural Society of the Coachella Valley members.
If you enjoyed Tom Jesch’s talk on Opuntia Hybrids "So Pretty, it Hurts” at last year’s 12th Annual Desert Garden Community Day, you will love visiting the nursery where they were propagated. We visited Tom at their Succulent Celebration in March and saw many of these beautiful opuntia in bloom.
This is a gorgeous nursery with succulents, natives, perennials, trees and shrubs for sale. They have a wonderful variety of plants. They also have beautifully arranged succulent containers.
The date and event details are to be confirmed and more information will follow on special events that day as they are finalized. Usually Waterwise Botanicals has a giveaway of one gallon plants as supplies last on their Succulent Saturdays (to be confirmed). This event may be open only to members or guests attending for $15, it will depend on the event details. We love guests to become members!
After our tour and shopping we may have lunch at the nursery (they usually have food truck(s) on Succulent Saturday) and for those who want to bring a bag lunch there are picnic tables onsite. For those who want to head to a restaurant the Z Cafe, 760-940-1751, looks worth a visit, Hawaiian food, burgers and sandwiches, cool menu selection. We can head home after lunch.

Hope to see you there!
