Michael Mace

Michael lives in San Jose, CA (USDA zone 9, min temp 20 °F / -7 °C), where his back yard is a steep south-facing hillside composed of rocky clay subsoil left behind when the developer scraped the hill bare. At the bottom of the hill is rich valley topsoil teeming with gophers and ground squirrels that eat everything except weeds. Mike enjoys growing trees and bushes that are slightly too tender for his climate zone, and he also has several hundred pots of captive bulbs in terraces on the hill, and anyplace else where he can stash some pots.
