LGM Mulch and Favorite Potting Soil for CA natives:
  • LGM brand Shredded Cedar Mulch
  • LGM Cactus Mix is my favorite potting soil for our native plants because its base is part oak leaf mold and it is fast-drainng.

LGM products are produced by a local company (Rosemead) and are only available bagged at independent nurseries or delivered  through your contractor or designer.
