The California statewide gardening guide—in a revised and updated fifth edition
Ever since its initial publication in 1993, this guide to California’s specialty plant nurseries has been an invaluable tool for gardeners and landscapers, and it is now available in an expanded and completely revised edition. Organized by geographic region, each listing provides essential information, including address, contact information, hours, plant offerings, and a detailed description of the facility and its owners. In addition to featuring specialty nurseries, Where on Earth catalogs notable garden centers, plant societies, education programs, and horticultural attractions throughout the state, as well as mail-order sources for bulbs, seeds, and rhizomes. The coauthors also include twelve essays, one for each region, that address that area’s special features and gardening concerns. Whether you’re searching for antique roses on the foggy North Coast, water-wise succulents and native shrubs around Los Angeles, or a palm doctor for your sickly cycads in the Central Valley, this book gives current, detailed advice for plant lovers to see, shop, and savor.
