War of the Weeds!

Just say NO to Witch’s Shoelaces, Hen's bane, Sneezewort, Bindweed and Cow Itch!

You gotta hand it to lowly weeds - they're some of the toughest, most persistent, drought tolerant and deer resistant plants around! They can find a way to thrive in the most neglected corners of the garden where most other plants wouldn't dare dream of growing. Plus, weeds are SNEAKY. They are masters of infiltrating the perimeter and taking off in a flash - racing to re-seed before you even know they're there!

Come learn how to vanquish these unwelcome intruders (especially after last year's wet and weed-inducing Winter!) with Bethallyn Black, Saturday, September 16 at 11 am! An expert in the fine art of weed exclusion, Bethallyn will tell you how you can prepare weed-free planting beds using easy and effective organic controls. She'll help you identify annual and perennial weeds, Summer and Winter weeds, and share a little about weed history.

With over 40 years of experience as an organic gardener, Bethallynn teaches horticulture at Diablo Valley College. Bring questions and your own weeds for identification after the talk!

Sizzling Heat-Beating Hotties!

Temperatures are rising, sidewalks are sizzling – and plants are parched! Here in California, water is a precious resource not to be wasted ... so what's a responsible gardener to do? It's funny you ask since we have a nursery FULL of tried-and-true smokin' hot plants that can take the heat! Some are even a triple threat - drought, deer AND clay resistant. We love these low maintenance superstars not only for their water-sipping ways, but their long bloom times and reliability (they won't just up and die on you) and – of course – their flowers!

IMPORTANT!! Give these beauties regular water until they're established - watering deeply every 3-5 days. Plant in the early morning or late afternoon and consider mulching around new plants to help retain water and keep the roots cool.
