Anderson's La Costa Nursery is a fun place to visit because it's like a little paradise made up of lots of different areas --it has a maze-like or a secret garden ambience. Lots of plants, many unusual ones, people who are willing to help and give ideas. The things I've bought from them have done well in my garden and have received lots of great comments. Even with a Japanese Maple with delicate leaves (which doesn't do well around here), they suggested a particular variety and the best spot to plant it --it's done great there! They even have things like Cornmeal gluten for natural weed control.
