When you have gardened a small 5,000 sq. ft. site for over 35 years, you have to make some tough decisions. Our front garden is at the bottom of a hill and gets not only strong all day sun, but also some of the harshest winter rain, frost, and hail that normally temperate Oakland can dish out. Our back garden, where we propagate plants for donation, is under a sprawling Coast Live Oak tree that sheds leaves all year and has to be as dry as possible during our semi-arid months. The plants that make the cut here have to be hardy as well as beautiful!
