Spring Party Spectacular!

Come celebrate our happiest and most joyful season with us!

We love a good party and we'll be dancing the day away with our go-go dancers, noshing on FREE munchies, getting our faces painted by the amazing Budderball the Clown and listening to fun and info-packed talks on bird, butterfly and bee gardening by Don Mahoney, curator emeritus at San Francisco Botanical Garden and Gardening 101 by Annie!

Come meet the enormous handcrafted menagerie of Monarchs, hummingbirds and more with puppeteer and stilt-walker, Toni Tone and Giant Puppets Save The World!

And of course we'll have a mega-raffle with our infamous SUPERMARKET SWEEP where 2 lucky folks win 15 MINUTES OF FREE SHOPPING each day! That could be you!


True Blue – Just For You!

If there's anything that sets our gardener's hearts thumping, it's the thrill of true blue flowers in the garden. Maybe it's their rarity and clarity of tone, or maybe how gorgeously they mix with softer, sweeter colors like pinks and yellows, or intense complimentary shades like red and orange that make for garden combination perfection. No matter why it is we find them so endlessly alluring, they're a rare treat and some of our best sellers ever. Just check out the sapphire stunners below!

If you love true blue flowers as much as we do (and we're not talking about those patently purple blooms that breeders are always trying to pass off as "blue"), then you have to head on over to OUR BLOG and read the latest entry by fellow blue-bedazzled gardener, Earl Nickel. As a nurseryman at Grand Lake Ace Hardware in Oakland since 2007, Earl says he has grown every blue flower we've ever offered – and we believe him!
