We have so much to see at the garden center! It's the perfect place to find gifts any time of year for that special person.

One of our most popular items is a bird feeder, feeding our lovely hummingbirds, flitting around to find nectar in your gardens. Yes, even in the winter rains! Put something special in the feeders for them, and a 2017 new feeder also.


Our hummingbird nectar concentrate which is  infused with extracts of flowers and electrolytes and packaged in a wine bottle, a great gift idea. 


The "trake" which is a trowel-rake combination, a most handy tool. The TRAKE® is two sturdy tools in one. The measured trowel is pointed for easy digging and the rake is narrow enough to cultivate between crowded plants. It is made of lightweight solid cast aluminum with a comfortable vinyl coating that allows a good grip. Features a lengthy 17" handle so it can be used kneeling or sitting, eliminating extra bending. Permanent graduations on the trowel blade allow precision bulb or seed planting. It has a rugged die-cast alloy blade and shaft, which cannot rust, bend or distort.

"l appreciate all of you so much. I am grateful that Ridge Road Garden Center has become not just a business, but a place that you can come for gardening advice, for cheering yourself up and for experiencing the joy that flowers and growing your own fruit and veggies bring. Thank you and I look forward to seeing all of you again soon." :) Salye


Create a container garden to decorate wonderfully with seasonal colors! Use a large center plant, like a croton, add a mum or two, an ornamental pepper and golden variegated ivy. Get the idea? Use plants you like and that will mimic the wonderful colors all around. Snuggle the plants in tightly. This beauty will provide colorful interest all season long. Even better, If you use evergreens in this fall container, it will last all winter long on a porch, patio or at the back door. Fernspray Gold Hinoki cypress has beautiful yellow and green foliage, paired with bright pansies in gold and crimson shades, it will be a show stopper! Choose any combination of plants that please you, and do provide a little contrasting color plant also to your arrangement.



* For best selections, buy your spring bulbs now; tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, lilies and crocuses.

* Plant containers with cool-season pansies, calendula, candytuft, foxgloves, snapdragons, stock, and sweet alyssum.


Grandiflora 'Miss Congeniality' (white with a pink picotee edge), is disease resistant and fragrant, perfect for cutting. Another is "Cutie Pie", a Hybrid tea, yellow with pink blending to peachy color, slight fragrance and beautiful. Plants and seeds, or even garden statuary, make wonderful gifts any time of year! There is so much available, so come soon to peruse our garden center, situated in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada's, in the gold country of Amador County. The garden center is managed by our daughter, Salye LaBelle, located at 18815 Ridge Road, Pine Grove, California.

We have 15 different varieties of peaches including "Arctic Supreme" a two-time taste test winner. Large, white flesh, nearly freestone when fully ripe. This peach is sweet and tangy, with a fine delicate flavor, and firm texture. It's a great time this month to select and plant the fruit trees you want.

What to do in the Garden? 


• Make an herb bowl to keep near your kitchen during the winter. Having fresh herbs available for all your cooking is very cost effective and easy to do. Sage, thyme, rosemary, parsley and tarragon are all cold hardy and can be grown outside during the winter.

• Plant some cool season planters to welcome your family and guests as they arrive. Ornamental cabbage, pansies, violas and calendula will all survive in the cold and bloom until spring. We have a great a selection right now.



Watercolors Home Run 

Gorgeous clusters of ever-changing 2-3" blooms (petals 5-8) of yellow, blushing pink and cerise red all on top of deep green leaves that start out red. A great, continual bloomer in the garden. Fun to watch the color changes. Complete disease resistance and self-cleaning petals make this beauty virtually maintenance free! This is a wonderful way to have abundant roses in your gardens without a lot of care and worry. Be sure and get some for you and a friend!
