This is an invaluable guide to plants native to Vancouver Island garry oak habitat. I have a very well-worn copy and use it frequently when planning native planting.
Not only does it guide you through the process of creating or restoring garry oak habitat, but it also has excellent plant lists for a full range of planting situations: woodland, moist-soil, rocky outcrops, hedgerows, shrub thickets, butterfly gardens, planting in containers.
