Preparing for planting day
If you’re new to gardening with native California plants, or if you’ve tried natives before without much success, this section is for you. Native plants are not difficult to grow as long as you choose the right plants for your location and follow some basic rules of thumb. However, you need to think about California natives and treat them a little differently than the usual lawn and roses. The information that follows is intended to get you off to a good start on the road to a beautiful natural garden.
This dedicated time when you first begin can really help budget time and material resources.
