2/4 Garden Tour - San Francisco Gardener's
Next up in our local gardener's garden tour is Dean Ouellette's California Cottage Garden. There's two parts to Dean's garden. The strip of garden on the sidewalk next to where the cars park. It's notoriously difficult spot to garden and that's why I call it the hell strip. Behind the main building, a courtyard is created between the main residence and Dean's cottage. In this courtyard is his California Cottage Garden test ground and nursery.
This year Dino added the flagstone curb around the street tree basin. I love what he did. He sunk the flagstone vertical 5-6 inches into the soil at the edge of the sidewalk concrete. This does a wonderful job of keeping dogs out and trash and litter from accumulating.
Clematis, I should know which one, is growing up the straggly street tree. Soon the crown of the tree will be overflowing with white blossoms.
Up next is Jeannine's Garden on Potrero Hill.
