Apples for the fall, limes and lemons for cooking, grapefruit, figs and persimmons for eating… Those are just a few of the many fruit trees we have at the Marina del Rey Garden Center. (Below) How about a lime tree? There’s nothing quite like having your own supply of limes for cooking, squeezing over seafood, making juice, or margaritas!

(Below) How about an apple a day this fall? Stop in and ask one of our design experts, CJ or Steve, for assistance. They can help you decide whether to buy “standard” or “semi-dwarf” and to plant in ground or in a container. Oh, yeah, they’ll also tell you the best soils to plant with to get your fruit trees off to the most healthy start possible.
