When is the best time to plant native plants?

The best time to plant natives is in the fall through spring, starting mid October and extending thru May, avoiding the heat of summer. However with planting close to the coast, in shady spots, and anywhere using desert plants, summertime plantings can be highly successful as well.

Your site is so cool. Do you allow events, weddings and suchlike during non-business hours?

Unfortunately, no… sorry. Though we have accommodated a few bridal registries… lucky people… native plants for their new life as married couple. We can make centerpieces and other native floral decorations for your special events.
