He has owned and operated Solana Succulents in Solana Beach for over 26 years. Prior to that he was a succulent enthusiast/collector for at least ten years. His small retail nursery offers as many succulent/desert plants as he can fit into it – from the common and colorful plants that are so popular now to the collector plants – crests, caudiciforms, variegates, rare cacti, etc… He does quite a bit of succulent landscape design and installation as well, and have become known (at least in San Diego) for the gardens he’s installed at the Del Mar Fair and Home Shows over the years – in particular the ‘undersea’ succulent garden.
His talk will be about his NEW book, Soft Succulents. The presentation will discuss the various genera of ‘soft succulents’ – aeoniums, echeverias, crassulas, sedums, dudleyas, kalanchoes, and the like. Examples will be shown of combinations in bowls and other mediums.
Jeff will bring plants as well as all three of his books for sale and signing.
