Wall Street Journal – Recognition Francis Dawson –

The Horticulturist, Author and Radio Show Host, John Fech from University of Nebraska was on sabbatical traveling the country touring gardens for a new book.

News of a property I landscaped in Santa Maria, California peaked his interest.  We met there and had a great time discussing plant selection, layout, maintenance, and the many plants I propagate for landscape, ornamental and art making purposes.

I am grateful that Mr. Fech forwarded the news of my garden to Anne Marie Chaker, garden writer for the Wall Street Journal, who then included this property in her article about the “Hell Strip.”
