Growing Native

Louise Lacey, author of Growing Native, the newsletter of the Growing Native Research Institute, ceased publication with the September/October, 2000, issue. The fifty-nine issues that were published contain a wealth of valuable information for the native plant gardener. These are still available, some as back issues, some as reprints. In the index below, the issues are described by the lead article only; there are informative articles, anecdotes, and lots more in each issue. Each plant description includes information about water needs, size at full growth and pruning requirements. Plants are selected for their desirability in a garden setting.

The prices are based on the number of pages in the issue.
