Cuyamaca College Water Conservation Garden Events – November 2014


What’s in Bloom at The Garden? 
There is always something lovely blooming or fruiting at The Garden. Stroll around to find this month’s pick:


Cape Honeysuckle

(Tecoma capensis)
  • Large scrambling shrub from South Africa that blooms from summer until December (possibly through winter in mild coastal conditions)
  • One of most versatile and drought tolerant shrubs for Southern California gardens
  • Grows up to 10 feet tall and wide and can be easily shaped into a box hedge or up a wall as an espalier
  • Letting woody shrubs like this grow up into the lower limbs of tall trees is a great low-water trick for achieving a tropical effect.


Bulbs, Beautiful Bulbs 

Saturday, November 8th (10am-12 noon)
Join The Garden’s Director of Horticulture and Exhibits, Clayton Tschudy, in an exploration of bulbs from Mediterranean climates around the world.

Little Angels’ dogs are trained to assist in a variety of ways to help with daily tasks and to increase independence. Most of the dogs placed are puppies that have come from Little Angels’ breeding program and are raised and molded from birth with the specific goal of being an Assistance Dog. Others are lucky enough to be rescued from shelters, and end up changing the lives of others. It is the goal of Little Angels that service dogs be placed at little to no cost to the disabled handler. Our charitable goals also reach out to the local community of San Diego, educating owners on how to train their own pet dogs, therapy dogs, and service dogs.
