Fatsia for west coast gardeners
Well let all the rain fall in winter... time to read up on plants in the off-season (never is really off for some of us which is needed in Canada). Again a video, this one featuring Fatsia japonica. Again it's taken on Salt Spring but it applies to all other USDA zone 8 areas of the BC coast. These videos sometimes make mention of zone 7 for gardeners away from the water &/or uphill.
