The Ventura County UCCE website has many great sources of information for home gardeners. One of them is the Santa Barbara Coastal Gardener. This garden column provides answers and information on home, garden and landscape problems. It was created by Frank Laemmlen Ph.D., Farm Advisor Emeritus in the Santa Barbara County Cooperative Extension Office. The original column was in question and answer format with one or more questions answered in each issue. We have separated each topic and have listed them as fact sheets.
The information is divided into the following major categories: home, landscape, and vegetables & fruit. The variety of subjects covered is vast. The landscape section even has a list of deer resistant/tolerant plants. From time to time, our office receives quite a few calls about how to keep landscapes intact from deer. This and much more can be found by clicking here, or by clicking on the home gardening button on our home page.
