I live in Santa Monica and would like to grow native plants instead of the lawn. Can any of you recommend a nursery close to SM and a book to get started? The soil has some clay. Thanks, Suzanne</p>

I don`t know of a native nursery directly in your area, but Theodore Payne is located in the east SF Valley- in Sunland, I believe. Marjorie Schmidt`s book is a good starter. And the best native website, by far, is www.laspilitas.com. Good luck.</p>

In addition to the excellent Las Pilitas website already mentioned, the web page for the Payne Foundation is http://www.theodorepayne.org/ Another native plant nursery to the north of you in Ventura County is Matilija Nursery http://www.matilijanursery.com/ Good luck.</p>
