Pre-Order "California Month-by-Month Gardening"

Here's some good news I can share: My second book, California Month-by-Month Gardening, is available for pre-ordering at!

I slaved over worked on this book most of last year and the early part of this year and I'm happy to see it moving toward its release in December (just in time for Christmas gifting--hint, hint!).

This book devotes a full month to each chapter, guiding you along  with the tasks you should be doing in your garden including planning, planting, caring, watering, fertilizing, and problem-solving. It covers the major plant and garden categories of annuals, bulbs, edibles, houseplants, lawn,  perennials, roses, shrubs, trees, vines and groundcovers, and water gardens and is heavily illustrated with full-color photos. This book is great for new and intermediate gardeners or any gardener who has relocated to or within California.

And here's a question for you: What do you think of the cover? I'd love your feedback!


  1. Congrats on the milestone! I appreciate that you showed a garden with limited lawn on your cover. We know that lawns aren't the best water users in California (or other places) but we also know some folks will not let go of them for multiple reasons. The photo highlights the garden aspect of the landscaping, and I like that.

  2. MulchMaid, I actually had hoped to use a photo of a garden we visited on the SF Garden Bloggers Fling that had no lawn, but the publisher wanted to go with this photo instead.
