  • Gardening Background

  • Biographical Information
    We are native San Diegans who grew up and still live in the Point Loma area. Cherie's love of plants and gardening comes from her mother. Katie's passion comes from both of her parents. Her mother's father and grand-father had nurseries in the Washington area. Katie's father loved to spend time in his yard at the end of the day and on the week-ends. He would care for his plants as Katie watched, listened and learned.

    We have enjoyed the support, inspiration and appreciation from each other. As partners our garden is a reflection of the love we have for beauty.
