Spring Is Here: Get Planting With Succulents, Shrubs; Add Intriguing Foliage and Colors to Your Garden

The weather in Southern California has been gorgeous, with sunny days speaking spring to all of us even though spring isn’t officially here until March 20. At the garden center, we’ve been busy preparing for spring since much earlier this year, placing orders, getting in plants, making sure we have a huge selection of everything a gardener, landscaper, design pro, or do-it-yourselfer could want.

Japanese Maple Festival March 14 and 15!

It’s time for our annual Japanese Maple Festival, one of the best ways to learn more about these magnificent trees! Stop in on Saturday and Sunday, March 14 and 15 for special discounts on Japanese Maples during our normal business hours, now 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily.


Prized for their foliage (above and below), these graceful trees turn any landscape into something beautiful. Ask one of our garden design experts Miguel, CJ or Steve for guidance. They can help you determine suitable places for planting your tree (what kind of sun and how much does the spot get?), help you decide between a container or in-ground planting, and recommend the best planting soil.

Create your own zen nirvana! Ask us for assistance. On Saturday, March 14, a representative from Monrovia Growers, the premier horticultural grower, will be on hand to answer questions about Japanese Maples during our Japanese Maple Festival.
