Gardening

Japanese gardeners also thrived, growing flowers and plants other gardeners had little patience for. They found the climate in the San Fernando Valley was ideal for growing flowers.

“Flowers we grew were either renunculas or anemones, which we grew in these cheesecloth tents that we would put up every year.”


~ Bill Watanabe
