After you have spent time planning and designing your California native garden and have selected the plants that you believe will work in harmony with your yard’s soil types and exposures proper installation is essential. Putting plants in the ground so that they can make best use of water in the ground and develop mycorrhizal networks with other plants will set them up for success in the years to come. Watering properly both at installation and afterwards will insure that your native plants have just what they need and not what they can’t use. Also, mulching your plants properly, without smothering the soil, will help protect their water resources, prevent weeds, and feed the soil.
 
This panel of experts will answer your questions about all of the above. The session will begin with some moderated questions curated from past workshops and then open up to an extended period of questions from the audience. Whatever you want to know more about on this subject--get your questions ready!
