Word of mouth: Garden blogs

There are many wonderful blogs on gardening, however, this list, under construction and by no means complete, focuses on those that concentrate on dry and native gardening in California. If yours fits the bill but is not in the list and you would like it to be, please don’t be offended and please do notify me at emily.green [@] mac.com. For organizations such as the Theodore Payne Foundation specializing in native gardening, click here and for events such as classes, walks and exhibits, here.
