Berkeleysider Diana Howard sketched some of the plants she has been collecting for her Berkeley garden.
Because I do not own the land on which I grow my garden, I try to keep gardening costs down. One of the things I’ve been doing belongs to the old-fashioned way of gardening: gathering seeds, runners and cuttings.
All of the plants I show are rampant and considered invasive in our Berkeley gardens. But if you’ve got a lot of land that needs filling up with flowers, they are all easy winners. Cineraria are good for shade; the rest are for bright sun.
Also Forget-me-nots, which, ironically, I forgot to include.
