Gardening Group Meeting (Program: Moving the Whitelock Cycads
Presenter: Gary Roberson)
Saturday, February 3, 2018 @ 2:00 PM

In 2015, the Huntington received a highly valuable donation of 620 cycads from the estate of Loran Whitelock, a passionate local plantsman.  The gift nearly tripled the number of these rare plants in the Huntington’s botanical collection.  Gary Roberson, now Head Gardener of the Cycad Collection, headed the project from the start.  Thus, there is no-one more qualified to describe this herculean task.  We’ll also see how their efforts paid off, as these cycads now grace a long ribbon of landscape stretching east and west along a ridge above the Huntington’s Jungle Garden.

Host: Jane Sell

This program was initially presented to an audience from 10 countries at the World Cycad Horticultural Conference held in Pattaya, Thailand and subsequently shown to the Huntington staff.  This is a heavily illustrated presentation and Gary has always been most generous about answering our questions.
