Mark your calendars… it's time to start loading up on California native plants from the folks who know 'em and grow 'em.
I keep a current schedule of sales on our main site. If you need a nudge to understand why growing natives makes sense in any garden, start with the California Native Plant Society. And of course, these books are always worth reading… or re-reading:
Complete Garden Guide to Native Shrubs of California (1990) by Glenn Keator
Complete Garden Guide to the Native Perennials of California (1990) by Glenn Keator
Growing Native, a bi-monthly newsletter by Louise Lacey, P.O. Box 489, Berkeley, CA 94701, www.growingnative.com, (510) 232-9865.
