I’ll be up in Big Bear this weekend at Hunter’s Nursery, providing native plant advice for drought-tolerant high-elevation gardens during the Big Bear Xeriscape Tour.  This is the 5th year that I’ve done this – the first year, we had the plants on my friends the Otterstrom’s deck!  Hunter’s carries some amazing local Big Bear native plants.  Most are grown from local seed, and many are rare.   See the resources page where I have posted the list of plants available as well as instructions on how to plant them.

The Sierra Club hosts the tour with the BBLDWP.  The tour is free, and it starts at Emingers Mountain Nursery at 41223 Big Bear Boulevard.  Participants can stop by between 9am and noon on Saturday, July 24, to pick up a tour booklet.  The tour continues until 4pm.

Hunter’s Nursery is at 42132 Fox Farm Rd., kitty-corner from the K-Mart, Big Bear, 909-866-2547
