I live in Orange County, CA and as I write this post I can hear the sounds of rain and more rain and... I actually like the fact that this rain is giving us a cleanse and considering we are in a drought we sure do need it. This leads me to the thought that this is a great time to plant in your California garden. From California native plants to California friendly plants your options are not limited. In fact I have a series of posts about plants depending on your situation.

I hope that these posts help you in discovering the right plant for your garden. I also hope that this holiday season brings you lots of love and joy. The rain will surely bring an abundance of free water.

For a limited time I am offering photo planting design services (through the last week of February). Here is how the service will work...
  1. You email me a photo of somewhere in your garden that needs to be planted.
  2. You tell me a bit about your garden (sun/shade, rough size of planting area etc.).
  3. I will respond with a proposed plant palette of California native plants suitable for that area of your garden. I could even go with you to a nursery to look at the suggested plants and assist you in the purchase and installation of the plants.
The cost for this services is free for the first picture and $20 each additional photo.
