It’s getting time for wild flowers so it’s good to see California poppy as the top seller in January 2019. I’m pretty sure it was dreams of even more flowers that sent Channel Island bush poppy home with so many folks, too. Another of our local collections, this time a toyon, made it into the top 10.
This is a good time to talk about weeds. The rain has been very generous this year, bringing lots of seedlings along with it, but it can be hard to tell which are weeds and which are plants we want to keep.
