This week on We Dig Plants Alice and Carmen talk West Coast plants after a journey Carmen made to Venice Beach and The Getty Museum. Who better to tackle the subject on-air than The Getty’s Central Garden coordinator Jim Duggan, calling live from the warm sultry climate that allows just about anything to grow year round? The gals ask about his process for creating the Getty’s remarkable gardens–planting plans that rival any museum on either coast. Tune in to hear how he made it all happen, and the few plants he longs to plant that we temperate climate folk can. This episode was sponsored by Roberta’s Bushwick Block Party.
