Event of the Month: September is halfway over, and we will be participating in the Bringing Back the Natives tour on the 23rd. Pruning talk at 2:00!
We will be participating in the upcoming Bringing Back the Natives tour to help promote the use of California plants in the Bay Area…join us for a pruning talk by Birch Starr-Reid (shown above!) at 2:00pm.
The big idea of the tour for the last couple of years has been to make sure everyone has a ‘Keystone species’ of plant in their garden, as described by author Doug Tallamy, to support a range of wildlife. For example: adding a Ceanothus shrub to your yard provides Winter/Spring flowers to support Bumblebees, hosts many kinds of caterpillars to support moths and butterflies, then the birds can have a go at the caterpillars and be fed and happy, all while using little to no water in the garden!
In addition to providing a perch and food for our birds, providing a wide range of flowering plants can combat the effects of climate change/plant timing; if we provide a wide range of flowers for as long as possible, we can support the short lives (2-8 weeks!) of our local bee species. That and controlling weeds/competitors can help insure a good menu of flowering plants for pollinators. See the work of biologist Rachel L. Olliff-Yang and the ’30 by 30′ project.
We are committed to bringing you the best quality plants for your garden or restoration project! We also can offer in-store consults if you bring in some photos. See you soon!
