  1. I would love to take your course, but I live in Palm Springs. I assume this class will be held in a real landscape situation, rather than a classroom, but I thought I would check to see if there is any online attendance option.
    Thank you.

    1. There is not at this time an online version of my class. But I would encourage you to get two books that will help. One is Plants for Dry Climates by Duffield and Jones out of Tucson and the other, Lush & Efficient: A Guide to Gardening in the Coachella Valley by Johnson, Harbison and Mahr is from your neck of the woods but I don't think its in print anymore. Both are very worth having. Both are available new and used from Amazon.
