BAGSC members were treated to an inspirational garden tour of Cordelia’s sustainable, drought-tolerant, and enchanting garden and home before the BAGSC Quarterly Meeting on June 4, 2016. Stay tuned to the blog for an article by Cordelia about the garden, its inspiration, planning, and building and more photos.
In the meantime, as promised, Cordelia has provided us with her plant list. All of the plants listed below are available from Australian Plants Nursery in Ojai, California.
