2010 San Francisco Flower & Garden Show

I just read that the San Francisco Flower & Garden Show was purchased by a local group of Bay Area investors (from Salmon Bay Events of Seattle) thus saving it from closure. I thought this years show was the last one forever and I’m glad that it’ll be returning.

2010 San Francisco Flower & Garden Show
March 24-28 (Wed-Sat 10am-8pm, Sun 1-am-6pm)
San Mateo Event Center
2495 South Delaware Street, San Mateo

I can’t wait to go… Which reminds me that I didn’t post any photos from the 2009 show… I’ll try to get to that…

Last SF Flower and Garden Show…

I just read from 

  journal that this year’s San Francisco Flower & Garden Show will be the last one :(

I’ve only learned about this Flower & Garden Show two years ago, but since then, me and my Mom really enjoy going. We usually make a day of it, bringing food and armed with our cameras. It’s a such big garden extravaganza for us… and there are so many cool things to see, buy and do…

I already requested a PTO day from work for Thursday, March 19 to go.

Here’s a news article about the news: NW Flower and Garden show to end

Here’s the Garden Show’s website:

Here’s some photos I took from 2008 and 2007.

Saturday Plant Sale…

Saturday, March 10, 2007

Early this morning I went to the San Francisco Botanical Garden Plant Sale with my friend Howard. I purchased a Sempervivum and a type of Crassula. I’ll have to check on the names later.

I also snapped some photos, but left my camera at Howard’s condo… ARGH!… I feel weird without my camera… It’s funny how it’s become a part of me.

When I got home, I noticed that there are about 5 tiny specks of green in my Lithops container. YEAY!!!… Little baby Lithops being born, 3 days after sowing.

I also noticed one of the 12 Japanese Long Purple Eggplants sprouting. It’s been 13 days since I sowed this, so maybe the seeds are not viable… (Pause)… I just checked the seed packet and it was packed for 2003, so they are probably old… I’ll have to plant more of the newer seeds. (I don’t know why I didn’t do this in the first place?)

Garden progress:

Recent blooms: Peaches, Sparaxis Tricolor, Tulip

About to bloom: Italian Plums, Persimmons

Not doing well: some Carnation cuttings, Orange Grafted Cactus
