Del Mar Garden Club President to speak on succulents at Del Mar Library

Mary Friestedt, president of the Del Mar Garden Club, will talk about succulents including their propagation, at the Del Mar Library on Saturday, May 3, at 10 a.m. Friestedt will discuss how you can create beauty in your own garden with drought tolerant plants. And, she will share lessons learned from local plantsman and designer extraordinaire, the late Bill Teague, including his landscaping tips and his recommendations of plants ideal for San Diego’s coastal Mediterranean climate.

“Libraries are places for the community to convene and share knowledge” said Polly Cipparrone, branch manager. “It’s fantastic to have local experts such as Mary Friestedt and be able to share their wealth of experience and knowledge with others.”
