RE: PNW Show


The most common question that gets sent to me via my website is "What
catalog has pre-planned gardens". I think saying that those people can't be
bothered is perhaps a little harsh. Not everyone enjoys the process like we
do; some people are intimidated by the sheer number of options, some people
don't have time, some are sure that they are not knowledgeable enough to do
it themselves. And in the case of HCG, those pre-planned gardens are not
unattractive. Not a bad way to get a good assortment.

High Country Gardens has been doing several pre-planned garden options for
quite some time now.  I guess some people just can't be bothered to research
the xeriscape plants themselves.  Or may not have the time.
