26 Miles Across the Sea! This week on In the Garden with UC Master Gardeners, we head that way with MG and KUCI Radio Host Bill Brooks.
Bill spent the day talking to various plant propagators at the Catalina Conservancy's plant nursery about starting native plants from seed to repopulate the natural landscape of Santa Catalina Island.
Over 85 species of container stock and over 2000 seed collections that represent 243 species are grown/housed at the nursery. All the projects conducted at the nursery are controlled under protocols strict enough to avoid negative impact to the special and unique environment of the island. There is more to Catalina than Avalon! Join us and learn techniques valuable to the rest of us on the mainland and to understand what there is to love, garden-wise, about a local environment just “right over there”!
