Tree of Life Nursery / California Native Plants: Kill your lawn!

by Carlyn Maw on August 4, 2009, no comments

So on Monday I took a break from technology and went to check out the Tree of Life Nursery in San Juan Capistrano. They not only focus on drought tolerant plants but ones that are actually from this area of the world. An incredibly helpful group of folks! They recommended the book California Native Plants for the Garden by Carol Bornstein, David Fross and Bart O’Brien
