We all know San Francisco has lots of fabulous quirks, and the climate is one of the weirdest. For visitors and newcomers, our weather can be a puzzle, but for plant nerds (like all of us here at Flora Grubb Gardens), this particular puzzle is what makes San Francisco a gardening paradise.
In this secluded oasis designed by the fabulous Daniel Nolan, contrasting textures play off each other to beautiful effect, soft and sculptural shapes working in harmony to create a lush, artful design.
Many of us at Flora Grubb Gardens love to cut from our gardens to bring nature inside. This is the time of year when we celebrate mothers, so why not give Mom, or another nurturer in your life, a plant that will deliver bouquets in every season?
My name is Tyson, and I’ve traveled the world in search of rare and elusive aloes and literally worshipped at their feet. This is my manifesto on why aloes are misunderstood, which I believe begins with the ubiquitousness of Aloe vera. Let’s shatter the preconception that all aloes somehow fall into this single category and come to truly appreciate the versatility of the genus Aloe.
Spring is here (at last!) and we know you're dying to get into your garden, so how about indulging our latest plant obsession: The magical, multi-talented ALOE. Here are eight reasons you should be obsessed with aloes, too.
One of our favorite gardens from designer Daniel Nolan is also one of the most simple. Nolan used bold forms and contrasting colors, leaving ample negative space for each plant to shine.
We are ecstatic to share with you Daniel Nolan's new book, Dry Gardens: High Style for Low Water Gardens. We will be hosting two events in October, 2018 to celebrate this amazing book.
