Poinsettias, Christmas Trees, Fresh-Cut Greens

By Cathy Hough, general manager & buyer

The holiday spirit is in the air at the Marina del Rey Garden Center, where you can wander our forest of fresh-cut Oregon Noble and Grand firs to find your Christmas tree. We’ve got everything you need to dress up the holidays, from fresh-cut greens (below) to a bounty of beautiful Poinsettias.

If you’re looking for the best Poinsettias in a variety of colors, stop in. Our Poinsettias range from Visions of Grandeur (below) to Cinnamon Star to Ice Crystal to Silver Marble among others. Selection on certain varieties is very limited, so don’t be disappointed. Shop early. Poinsettias help make the holidays merry and bright.

Our Christmas Trees (below) bring magic to the season. Ours come from Windy Acres Farm in Oregon and are the freshest around. Be sure to stroll our forest of Noble and Grand firs to find the one that will make your home all the prettier.

Our expert staff (below) is ready to assist you with any purchase. We’ll help you load your goods into or on top of your vehicle so you can get them home for the holidays. We also offer delivery, so ask Steve, Roger or CJ for help.

Grab a hot chocolate or cup of coffee, and stroll the garden center. Experiencing the smell, look and atmosphere of the nursery at this time of year is a delight. Our living and fresh-cut Christmas trees (below), fresh-cut greens and Poinsettias are just the thing to bring out the holiday spirit.

Welcome the season and bring magic and light to all who visit you and your home. Stop in today to find gifts for gardeners, including the Marina del Rey Garden Center gift card, which never expires and has no fees associated with it. You spend $20, your gift card recipient has $20 to spend at MDRGC.

This year, we have Talavera ornaments (below). The special and much-sought-after Talavera pottery has no equal, so add a one-of-a-kind Talavera ornament to your tree. It would also make a great hostess gift or stocking stuffer.

An indoor plant makes a great gift. Our Orchids (below) are exquisite.
