Did you know that fall is the perfect time for planting many landscaping plants here in Northern California? In this 3-week course on Thursdays, 10/4, 10/11 and 10/18, you'll learn about the many beautiful low-water plants that thrive in our mild, Mediterranean climate and how to incorporate them into your landscape.
