Gardening: Tips for growing tropical and exotic fruit trees in Southern California
Valley and beyond, with dozens of customers in places like Woodland Hills, West Hills, Northridge, Sherman Oaks, the Hollywood Hills, Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Santa Monica, and Malibu.
Before I met Ash, if someone had told me that not far south of Mulholland Drive, close to Sepulveda Boulevard, there was an orchard of more that 100 macadamia nut trees that were annually producing hundreds of pounds of nuts, I would have had serious doubts about that person's sanity. While I had heard of macadamia nut trees in Malibu, I had no idea that they could thrive so close to home.
Mulholland Drive is an important dividing line where plant selection is concerned. North of Mulholland Drive, plants that are marginally frost-tolerant – that is, able to survive temperatures of 32 degrees or below for only two or three hours in succession – may get burnt if not die on a long freezing night. South of Mulholland, however, it is possible to grow all manner of such plants, including a wide range of tropical fruit trees.

"In the San Fernando Valley," Ash explained, "our customers are usually situated close to the hills or on slopes since there is less frost danger in these locations." Cold air moves like water and that is why marginally frost tolerant trees are grown on hilly terrain. A case in point is California's avocado acreage, most of which is found growing on slopes in places like Temecula and Santa Paula. On the Pierce College campus in Woodland Hills, many years ago, there w... Jul 6, 2018

The thief got away with loads of valuables, and the way he got into the building is raising questions about security at the complex.AdvertisementThe Harford County Sheriff's Office captioned the video "Who does this?" In a Facebook post that's getting thousands of views.It shows a man peeking into the windows of the Avondell Assisted Living Complex in Bel Air, carrying a bouquet of flowers, then walking into the building just after 7 p.m. on July 28 with no apparent problem. Once inside, he's accused of burglarizing several apartments."We're guessing that was a ruse to walk in so people would think that he's going in there to visit somebody, so that nobody would approach him thinking he belong there and he could walk throu...

Four separate residents were robbed and the suspect got away with about $100,000 in valuables."When they got down there they started talking to residents of the facility and they found out that four different rooms had been burglarized," said Major William Davis of the Harford County Sheriff's Office.Video from the facility released by the sheriff's office shows the suspect casually walking in carrying flowers, but this was no petty theft."Someone came in from outside and went inside and stole property to the tune of about $87,000-$100,000," Davis said.Those that run the facility say they have state of the art security and this is not something that happens on their property. Investigators think the man in the video may have used the flowers as a cover to... (ABC2 News)
