A few books I highly recommend:
Pat Welsh Southern California Gardening
A gardener’s must have for So Cal monthly tips on planting, pruning & maintenance.
After I finished this book, I read it again! Jane gives a whole new perspective on plant and trees.
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and James Madison were not only avid gardeners, but advocates, seed sharers, journalists, collectors, admirers and experimenters in gardening and agriculture. Who knew?
