 What's New at the Garden Center? Our Fall vegetable starts are here as well as a fresh selection of seeds! Don't have room? Try a Smart pot. These pots are fabric and easily filled with our good organic soil. Grow your own salad bar! We have a great selection of kale, spinach, and lettuce. Nothing tastes like home grown! Fall is a wonderful time to plant bulbs, shrubs and trees. Fall vegetables are here, including garlic. Get plants in the ground and established now as more rain is forecast! Potted berries, figs, and table grapes  will be here in November. Happy planning and planting! A Huge Thank You for your business this past year. ONION SETS ARE IN!

It's time once again to pre-order your fruit trees. We especially select varieties that grow and thrive in the foothills. You can see our list and order the items you want anytime before Dec 20th. A deposit of 50% scores you 10% off, and you don't have to worry about getting to the garden center to get your desired choices. When they arrive, we pick the best specimens first for you and hold them until you are ready to plant. There is a window of about 3 months for you to pick them up. We can pot them up for you or you can take them out of the sand "bare root". There are different advantages to both; we would be happy to explain it to you if you call or stop by to see us.

So those of us who are die-hards will figure out a way to do what we love. We have classes throughout the year including special events and demonstrations.
