Last-Minute Holiday and Hostess Gifts

By Cathy Hough, general manager & buyer

I’d like to wish each and every one of you a peace-filled holiday season. We, at the Marina del Rey Garden Center, value the opportunity to serve you year-round.

Give a living gift this holiday. Houseplants make great hostess gifts. In addition to our usual huge selection of indoor plants, we also offer seasonal bulbs that come beautifully wrapped for the season. The best part is that most of these exquisite plants are in bloom or nearly so.

Remember that the Marina Garden Center gift card makes a great gift. Our gift cards never expire and can be purchased in the amount you want. We don’t charge anything extra for gift cards. No service or hidden fees, ever.

But do stop in to check out our eclectic home and garden gifts. You can certainly find fun, unique items.

Primitive Planters (below) is a new line we’ve added to our inventory, and we’re sure you’ll love it. These planter holders come in classic twist macrame and vibrantly colored cloth fabric. Now you can hang a plant indoors and out, and have the look you want.

The Primitive Planters collection is at the Marina del Rey Garden Center.

Now you can hang your decorative pot in style. Stop in and start hanging your plants today.

We will close on Friday, Dec. 24, Christmas Eve, at 3 p.m. and remain closed until Sunday, Dec. 26, when we will open at 8 a.m.

We will again close at 3 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 31 and reopen on Sunday, Jan. 2, at 8 a.m.

The Marina del Rey Garden Center team wishes you all a happy holiday season!

It’s not too late to select a fountain for the holidays! We have an incredible selection that includes indoor and outdoor wall fountains, outdoor fountains and indoor tabletop or floor fountains. Give a gift card so that your special someone can buy the fountain of their dreams.

Year-round, you can always find the best indoor and outdoor plants at the Marina Garden Center. You can also count on us for all of your gardening needs, from soil amendments to expert advice to watering cans to hose attachments to soil scoopers to gardening gifts.

From all of us to all of you, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

New Poinsettia and Greens Delivery Every Week!

By Cathy Hough, general manager & buyer

Tis the season for fresh-cut Christmas trees, Poinsettias, fresh-cut greens and fun gifts. Our fresh-cut Christmas trees from Oregon are here and range in size from two to nine feet. And we’re getting new arrivals of lovely Poinsettias and fresh-cut greens every week.

Welcome your guests with holiday wreaths. Our green selection is limited in supply so hurry in to select from some wonderful greens.

We take expert care of our Christmas trees and have been doing so for years. Our staff is well-versed at giving them a fresh cut, placing them in a stand, keeping them watered, hosing them down as needed and transporting them so that they stay in tip-top condition.

Nothing says “festive” quite like a Poinsettia and these days they come in many magnificent colors. Ours are the best quality around.

Visions of Grandeur, Ice Crystal and Cinnamon Star are just a few of the Poinsettias we carry. Of course, we have the traditional red and white Poinsettias.

We also stock religious statues year round in addition to our huge selection of contemporary and classic statues, fountains and containers. Give the gardener in your life a gift card for the Marina del Rey Garden Center. They’re available in any dollar amount and don’t expire.

There are lots of ways to decorate for the holidays, indoors and out. Ask Steve or Darla to help you pick plants that will bring your outdoor areas alive with magic for the holidays, and beyond.

Red and white cyclamen love the cold and are a great way to make bedding areas and containers the hit of the holidays.

Our delivery driver and our huge delivery trucks are ready to get everything you need for the holidays to your home. And we can help you get your tree on your car for the ride home if you prefer.

We can wrap your tree for a truck ride, too.

Stop in to check out our great gift selection. Our gnomes are waiting for you.
