Local California Native Plants come in variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and textures, and are great additions to drought-tolerant landscapes. But some varieties are difficult to find in nurseries. Could you grow them from seeds?  Join Master Gardener Allie Judy who will dive into the advantages and disadvantages of seed propagation. You will learn basic germination skills for California natives including perennials, and how to collect seeds to propagate.
