    1. Scott Taylor on said:

      Excellent resource for gardeners who want to use native California plants. Applicable to a wide range of garden situations and with a deep amount of information covering propagation, growing from seed and growing from container stock. This book is a spiritual grandchild of Marjorie Schmidt's seminal work on the same subject. Highly recommended.
