Happy fall!

Happy first day of fall! We look forward to the months ahead; fall seems to be the time we most appreciate the changes that happen all around us, our gardens providing a wonderful glimpse into what nature does.

Enjoy the colors, plant some ornamental grasses and cold season veggies, make some soup, carve pumpkins even if it's not Halloween, take note of the fall foliage and be happy!

Burgundy Loosestrife

One of our other favorite plants of the moment is Lysimachia atropurpurea “Burgundy Loosestrife”. Doesn't look like much in its little 4" container, but plant it in the ground, watch it grow, and once it blooms - WOW! It's a showstopper! SUCH A COOL PLANT!

We ordered too many of them because we love them so much, so we even have them on sale right now for just $3 each! Come in and try a few out, we promise you'll love them AND will impress your garden nerd friends!

Black Coral Pea

Check out one of our newest additions to our gardens: Kennedia nigricans "Black Coral Pea"! We had this specimen in stock earlier this summer, and it sold out super quick! Easy to grow, this Australian native loves clay soil and is super hardy! Give it your toughest conditions, and it will thrive! Beautiful, unusual bloom, too! We kinda have a crush on this plant...

And don't forget, our sale section is nice and full right now, but stop in soon if you want to get in on it, our 'weekday regulars' will no doubt have it cleaned out by the end of the week!

Cleaned up and ready for YOU!

Good morning, garden geeks! We've done some major clean up the past two days, and hope you have time to come check out our work!

New this weekend:

1. Lots of plants moved to the SALE section and priced at 1/2 off or less! We had a lot of new goodies and decided to clear out most of our remaining summer stock, so you'll find some treasures in there!

2. Great selection of grasses and succulents from Annie's Annuals & Perennials!

3. Also from Annies: some fun selections like "Day of the Dead" marigolds, Angelica "Purpurea", new geraniums, delphiniums and much much more! 

Hope to see you soon!

Clean up, sale plants, and new Annie's Annuals!

     We've been working hard out in our garden, getting cleaned up from summer and our heat wave and getting all our new goodies out for you to take home! We'll be back at it today, so come in and say hi!

     We moved a BUNCH of stuff to our very popular SALE section (plants that just need a little TLC and are a great bargain) and we have a huge new order of treasures from Annie's Annuals & Perennials that just came in.

One of our favorites is Briza media "Quaking Grass": we looove grasses, especially in the fall, and this one is so so cool! It only grows to about 12-18” tall, and gives you these awesome small, heart-shaped florets that start out bright green from April thru June then turn golden with maturity, looking, as Annie's puts it, "like little fairy lanterns or the end of rattlesnake tails." Makes a really cool cut flower, too. Awesomeness. Get one!
