Fall is the best time of year to add to your garden in California. There are many places to spend your gardening money this fall. Seems like every nursery has a Fall sale and many organizations as well. If you are a fan of California Native Plants and want to support activities that protect our native flora and promote use of native species in landscapes of all kinds, why not support the activities of the California Native plant society by visiting the fall sale of your local chapter and buying local native species and interesting selections for your garden? The CNPS Monterey Bay Chapter sale is Saturday October 7 10-1 at the MEarth Hilton Bialek Habitat by Carmel Middle School in Carmel. There will be nearly 250 species and selections for Sale. You wont find a selection anywhere like this group outside of a Botanic garden. The Plant inventory list will be posted to the CNPS Monterey bay website on October 2. at

On Thursday November 9 (7:30) at The Carmel Valley Village Community Center I will be giving a presentation to the Carmel Valley Garden Association on the Sages of California. Salvia is one of my favorite genera to grow and see and smell in a garden. California is blessed with a broad variety of sturdy shrub and smaller perennial species as well as a few annuals that are worth trying in a garden. This will be an overview of most of the species and selections available from California origin.
