Meet Succulent Expert Peter Walkowiak

Be sure to visit Peter Walkowiak's booth in the garden vendor area of the Spring Home/Garden Show. This Escondido, CA nurseryman, horticulturist and landscape designer specializes in rare and unusual cacti and succulents. His plants are amazing and he's a real treat to listen to.

Peter Walkowiak

Peter is president of North County's Palomar Cactus & Succulent Society and is on the Board of Directors of the San Diego C&SS. They'll have booths at the show, too, staffed by members who enjoy sharing information and educating the public about succulents. Btw, Peter says that over the past five years, the Palomar club's membership has increased from 60 to 140 and San Diego's from 230 to 600!
