As a new year greets us, I’d like to once again thank you for making the Marina del Rey Garden Center your gardening resource. We take great pride in offering expert plant and planting guidance and superior products from the best growers and vendors.
Year-round we offer a complete selection of plants, indoor and outdoor, fountains, containers, soil amendments, statues and home decor items designed to make your home and garden a beautiful place.
Winter needn’t be a time that takes you away from gardening. Camellias (above) are in bloom and ready to be planted. Camellias come in tree and shrub shapes with flowers reminiscent of roses. Ask Steve or Stephanie for advice on how to add one or more of these beauties to your landscape. Sometimes considered finicky, Camellias are easy to grow once you know how to care for them.
There is nothing quite like a Japanese Maple for adding variety, versatility and year-round beauty to the landscape. Watch the seasons, even in Southern California, through the lens of a Japanese Maple, and you will know why these beauties have a seat of honor in gardens around the world.
We’ve just received a delivery of citrus, ranging from lemons to limes to tangerines to oranges to grapefruit, in dwarf and normal sizes. Citrus is great to have around and nothing tastes quite like your very own homegrown fruit.
Fortunately, citrus (below) can be grown in ground and in containers, making it a great plant for the garden or balconies, decks, patios and porches.
The Marina del Rey Garden Center is well known for our large in-stock selection of containers (below), fountains and statues.
And if we don’t have what you’d like in stock, we take special orders. And we deliver.
Ask Steve or Stephanie about how we can get your purchase to you via our delivery service.
Plant a winter vegetable garden with sugar snap peas, broccoli, cauliflower and collard greens.
Is space a problem? Let us help you select a container so that you can grow your vegetable on a sunny deck or balcony.
