About Claire Splan

 I'm an Alameda native with a deep appreciation for the joys of gardening in sandy soil and a Mediterranean climate. This is where I share my gardening successes and frustrations (of which there are many), as well as news of gardening events and developments in and around the San Francisco Bay Area.

About My Book

In April 2012 I published my first book, California Fruit and Vegetable Gardening (Cool Springs Press). Written for beginning to intermediate gardeners, it guides you through the basics of gardening (building good soil, planting techniques, small-space gardening, efficient watering, and plant nutrition) and helps you select the best edibles to grow in your California garden.
