Gardening questions? Send them our way

Is it too late to prune back that Mexican sage? How best to clean up a partially frostbitten vine? Would aloe or pride of Madeira (or neither?) be better on a steep slope with clay soil?

Our SoCal Garden Clinic experts have been fielding your questions for three months and are busy answering more queries on what to plant and how to fix problem spots as we chug toward spring. We want your questions, too. Send them to

Though the volume of mail prevents us from answering every question, we will respond to as many as we can. And in the meantime, you can read past questions and answers in our SoCal Garden Clinic archive.

The Global Garden, our Tuesday feature looking at the cultures of L.A. through the lens of its landscapes, will return next week.
