Gardening in a Mediterranean Climate in the Fall

My recent conversation with U.C. Santa Cruz Arboretum's executive director Martin Quigley. If you want to know more about growing things along California's Central Coast, this is a must watch video.

U.C. Santa Cruz Arboretum's Succulent Garden

We define a Mediterranean climate and discuss their unique qualities, talk about growing fruit trees, ornamental plants, and bulbs, review fine points of pruning trees and flowering shrubs and separating succulent plants.

It was a fun interview which took place at the KSQD Santa Cruz studios on Saturday, September 14, 2019. The video is 20 minutes long and contains nearly 100 different images.
