Invaluable Plants for Low Water Use Gardens
Join Nicholas Staddon, an unabashed plant fanatic, as he navigates us through a cornucopia of regional appropriate plants for our southern California gardens, both in-ground and container plantings. He always has a firm eye on the environment and will suggest plants and habitat that support the wildlife struggling to live with us, as homeowners have the critical opportunity to create gardens that support wildlife as well as plants.
