Mark your calendar… 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. There's also the Going Native Garden Tour, on April 20. 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 collection of guide books by Louise Lacey, P.O. Box 489, Berkeley, CA 94701, www.growingnative.com, (510) 232-9865.
