The Master Gardeners of San Diego held their annual Fall Plant Sale today. The event took place at the Casa del Prado in Balboa Park, and included a number of educational displays in one of the building’s two courtyards.

I wandered about, spoke to some participants, and learned a whole lot about gardening in Southern California. Click on the photographs of posters to read them! You’ll find lots of useful information!
