      As we approach our pleasant fall planting season, do you find yourself thinking "What should I plant?" Would you like to attract hummingbirds and butterflies? Do you live above Claremont, at the beach, or in the high desert where different climates and soil types are challenging you in surprising ways? Or does your garden have clay soils or a large oak tree under which plant after plant seems to wither away? Meet with RSABG nursery and horticulture staff at the Lenz Classroom for this pleasant two-hour workshop where you can ask all your questions, express your gardening concerns and frustrations, and receive the advice and suggestions you need! This workshop is scheduled exactly one week before the launch of RSABG's Grow Native Nursery season (October - May).
