About this product
- DescriptionThis is the first month-by-month guide to gardening with native plants in a state that follows a unique, ntraditional seasonal rhythm. Beginning in October, when much of California leaves the dry season behind and prepares for its own green spring , Helen Popper provides detailed, calendar-based information for both beginning and experienced native gardeners. Each month's chapter lists gardening tasks, including repeated tasks and those specific to each season. Popper offers planting and design ideas, and explains core gardening techniques such as pruning, mulching and propagating. She tells how to use native plants in traditional garden styles, including Japanese, herb, and formal gardens, and recommends places for viewing natives. An essential year-round companion, this beautifully written and illustrated book nurtures the twin delights of seeing wild plants in the garden and garden plants in the wild.
