I have been the proprietor of Larner Seeds, specialists in California native plants and seeds, for the last 35 years. We designed the Quail House to be in a private part of our Demonstration Garden of all California native plants, and we consider it an opportunity to give people the experience of living comfortably in a "habitat restoration garden."
I've written two books with UC Press on the subject and many articles, and I'm working on a third. I have a passion for my work and love to share it, (given advance notice).
I'm married and live here with my husband Peter. We are fervent explorers of California's many beautiful places.
Our business brings many wonderful people to our door, and now the Quail House does as well. We are happy to interact with you, or not, depending on your needs. The desire for total privacy is easily accommodated.
