For those of you fortunate enough to be able to visit Annie's Annuals, their newsletter just announced that Bart O'Brien will be speaking there on Sept 2. Here are details:

Drop dead
gorgeous dry gardens!
Join us Saturday,
September 2 at 11 am
for a fun and inspiring
session with the ever-engaging Bart O'Brien,
Director of the Regional Parks Botanic Garden
in Tilden Regional Park and co-author of the truly
excellent books Reimagining the California
and California Native Plants for the

Bart is an encyclopedia of the BEST
CA natives for Bay Area gardens. Not only does he know
(and love!) them like the back of his hand, he can tell
you how best to pair them for maximum beauty and
dramatic effect, whether it's in containers on a balcony
or gardens, small or large.

Perfectly timed for those thinking
about planting NOW or very soon, Bart will cover the
benefits of planting natives in Fall – from taking
advantage of the coming rains, to giving plants plenty
of time to establish themselves so they can produce a
spectacular Spring display (especially native annuals)
and get through their first Summer with less frequent
watering. He'll also give tips on pinching and pruning, as well as
when and how hard to cut plants back. Take advantage of
this truly excellent chance to ask Bart all your native
plant and gardening questions and stay for a book
signing after the talk!
