The Hottest House Plants!
Indoor plants purify your air, reduce stress and add a touch refinement to virtually any decor. Most house plants are low maintenance and come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
We have the largest selection and variety of house plants in the area along with the expert advice to help you choose just the right foliage, flower or succulent for your home or office.
Summer has officially arrived, but that doesn’t mean you’ve missed the boat for Springtime planting. Many plants can be planted in the early summer and thrive!
The changing season also means changes to your care routine for flowers and plants already in the ground.
What to Plant NOW
Summer Fruits & Vegetables
If you’ve been waiting for warmer weather before planting your vegetables, don’t wait any longer! Things will heat up soon and you don’t want to miss out. We have a huge selection of heirloom tomatoes and peppers, plus zucchinis, cucumbers, strawberries, rhubarb and just about everything else. Grow kale for your smoothies and lettuce and corn for your summertime cookouts. Don’t forget the herbs for some cocktails with friends!
While you will get a summer’s worth of enjoyment from their bold and bright blooms, they will only be at the nursery for a little while. Come in soon for the best selection because before you know it they will disappear.
We are in for some spectacular summer days here on the Monterey Peninsula and nobody loves this weather more than Lavender! There are so many varieties to choose and they are just budding up and ready to go. Consider planting them alongside Alstroemerias (Peruvian lilies) for a dynamic duo of beauty and ease. To really push it over the edge, add pennisetum setaceum ‘Rubrum’ (Fountain grass) for an elegant combination that is quintessential California. Just add a slight breeze and I promise, you will never want to leave your yard!
An Important Reminder from CalFire
Defensible Space is your property’s front line defense against wildfire. Creating and maintaining defensible space around your home can dramatically increase your home’s chance of surviving a wildfire
and improves the safety of firefighters defending your property. 100 feet of defensible space is required by law, and 150-200 feet is even better!.
Mow before 10 a.m., and never on a hot or windy day. String trimmers are a safer option (vs. lawnmowers) for clearing vegetation.
