Blueberry Bushes

Now is the time to plant any one of the 6-8 varieties of Blueberry bushes we carry. The bushes are so popular we can barely keep enough in stock. Our varieties do exceptionally well in Southern California and can be grown in ground or containers. You just need sun, and do ask about the proper soil amendment to plant them with.

Roses

Roses can be grown in all sorts of spaces, from on a deck or balcony to in ground or trained to cascade over a fence or wall.
