Oh wow, saat nah Jas. When i moved out here a few years ago I was also looking in Bixby Knolls area (like i think u were at a point?) but the deals I found would most always be backed up to a like a trailer park that seemed to have a colony of midgets parading around in RVs!
So settled instead for Signal Hill area a brisk walk from Hilltop Park. Non-HOA 1/4 acre lot but maybe half of it is house & concrete driveway, walkways, etc.
A little khmer mart next to Monorom’s used to sell the most khmer plants but they sold the store few years ago before got a chance to buy anything from them, so now only Riverside mart seems to carry some these days; nowhere else that know of in LB.
Hoping to find some yuon stores in Westminster/OC area that have more asian plants than can be found in LB.
Armstrong had one mango tree left the other day, but it was like $80 with only like 5 leaves so passed on getting that. Lowes (Towne Ctr) has M’rum trees but they’re like $42 each.
My kaffir and persimmon are wee small with few leaves and were still pricy. Plus its a shame with the chemtrails radiation & smog, alot of plants die off… so usa gardening has become ‘survival of the fittest’ in these shady times.
