    Guest Speaker: Paul Zammit
    Topic: Plants that Like it Hot: Tropical and Hardy Succulents

    This water-wise and rather tough group of plants is available in an ever-increasing selection of shapes, sizes, colours, forms and textures. Join Paul for a dynamic presentation where he will share his experience and timely tips on how to grow and creatively use both hardy and tropical succulents in gardens, containers, and places you probably haven't thought of.

     

    It's possible you've seen Paul on TV, heard him on the radio, or read about him in magazines. An accomplished horticulturist, Paul Zammit's enthusiasm, engaging personality and creativity contribute to his reputation as a crowd pleaser at horticultural venues. You can find Paul online at www.paulzammit.ca and at the Toronto Botanical Garden, where he is the Nancy Eaton Director of Horticulture.
