Gardening with Cacti & Succulents


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Cacti and succulents can add an appealing and compelling look to your garden. These water-wise plants work well together and share low-maintenance growing conditions. In addition, their wide range of leaf colors and structure add visual interest and drama to any setting. Join Andrea Wakefield and Jeff Pavlat, members of Austin Cactus and Succulent Society, as they share their expertise and suggestions on all of these matters.

This seminar will be held from 10 am to 12 pm in the Austin Area Garden Center at the Zilker Botanical Garden, 2220 Barton Spring Road, Austin, TX 78746. While the event itself is free, a park entrance fee is required. Fees are $2 per adult, $1 per child (ages 3-12) or seniors (age 62 & over), and $3 for non-Austin residents. Cash or check accepted.
