The Sharp Side of Gardening––BCMG General Meeting

Bexar County Master Gardeners (BCMG) meeting begins with a social time at 6pm followed by a special, free presentation at 6:30pm.

Integrate Cacti

Move from the Mundane to the Sharp Side of Gardening!

Come and hear Marty Ruona discuss ways to integrate cacti into your landscape. Cacti vary in size, color, shape and growing habits.  Add a different texture or color, or use spiny cactus to form a fence which detracts fire. Find out which cacti are are happier with partial shade as are many other decorative plants in the garden. And, learn about new cacti Marty has developed.

Marty Ruona has been a cactophytle since 1986, a succulentist since 1991, Master Gardener since 1992, and operates a landscaping business.
