Catch Plant Sale Fever!!!

Hello Southern California Gardeners,

We are entering the season of sublime synchronicity for installing native plants. In conjunction with the oncoming winter rains and cooler temps, fall is better than any other time of the year to create a consummately California garden.

Check out the California Native Plant Society's website (www.cnps.org) for a fall plant sale near you. Or, visit your local nursery with Sunset Western Garden Book in hand. Tell them you're looking for native plants that will grow best in your garden's conditions. Sometimes it's helpful to bring with you a list of them, such as sun exposure, soil type, slopes, size, etc. Most nurseries will order plants they don't have in stock. El Nativo supplies natives to retail nurseries.

If you're looking for a little more fun than the nursery and want to meet like-minded gardeners, don't miss these upcoming plant sales.

A mere fifteen minutes away from Los Feliz is the CNPS San Gabriel Valley's chapter sale, "Under the Oaks," on November 19th from 9 am to 2 pm at Eaton Canyon Nature Center in Pasadena. For more info, see: http://www.cnps-sgm.org/.

A little further from home but well worth the trip is Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden's fall sale on November 5th and 6th. Visit the link to Rancho on the right side of this blog for more details.

It's time to shop and plant your heart out!
