Transplanting and care of Saguaros, other desert plants at Carefree Desert Gardens, March 8
The spectacular and dramatic Saguaro cactus grows naturally only in the Sonoran Desert. What are the keys to successfully transplant and establish them from one landscape into another?
Cesar Mazier, former Director of Horticulture for the Desert Botanical Garden and popular presenter on native plants, will share answers with us. He will discuss how soil, water and temperature impact a favorable transition for our beloved desert giants and other desert plants.
Internationally recognized for his expertise in desert horticulture, Cesar has interacted on a technical, scientific, environmental, research and horticultural nature with botanical gardens and national parks throughout the world. Considered by many to be one of the leading experts, he has done intensive research and authored articles on the care of Saguaros and Boojums.
