What makes our plants so special? Our location on the cliffs of Santa Barbara receives over 280 days of sunshine a year and we utilize our indigenous soil, mixing it with a specialized amendment. Our plants are routinely watered, fertilized, and trimmed. We always aid our plants to proper health when needs arise, and we do so without the use of sprays.
