Event of the Month: 20% off sale July 12th-14th!

It’s mid-Summer, and we are just at the end of an early heat-wave. We hope everyone’s gardens are weathering this heat inland; in the Berkeley Marina area we’ve barely topped 78 degrees!

After the heat breaks, it’s still a good time to plan for your Autumn garden. Buckwheats (Eriogonum sp.) in particular, can provide crucial late-season forage for native bees and butterflies. We have a wide range in stock (see inventory or call us). Anything with prolific summer blooms does well in the warmer soil of summer. Always pre-soak your planting holes, and mulch to retain moisture.

Watering should be preferably an hour before sunrise, then let your plants use the water during the day. Most California chaparral likes an afternoon rinse–don’t soak your plant’s rootball in the heat, but watering overhead a bit in the evening cools down the foliage and removes dust. Established plants may be perfectly happy with a monthly deep watering, and an evening wash.

If you miss this July sale, stay tuned for an upcoming Back to School sale this September!
