Where the Unusual is the Usual

In our earlier days we would always describe our nursery as 'where the unusual is the usual' while that hasn't changed, we still pride ourselves on having unusual and unique plants and other gardening items. This month I've brought in something very 'unusual' because it's not gardening related. Yet because of the uniqueness I wanted to make it available to all of you. The photos don't do the necklace/bracelet/belt justice, you need to pick it up and try it out for yourself. What you leave your home with may not be what you come back with in regards to the design and how you are wearing it. We found this item on our trip to South Africa last year and our friend was able to get some sent over, we have seen them in jewlery stores and craft shows for much more than what we are offering them to you for.
Pick up more than one for yourself or as a gift, $25.00 each or $20.00 each if you buy 2 or more.

Exciting New Book at the Nursery

We received a phone call late last week from Bunny Henderson, the author of "Digging It" How to garden your way out of the recession. Bunny's son lives in Mission Hills so she was familiar with our nursery and realized our saying of "Life's a Garden, Dig It!" seemed to fit perfectly with her book. Josh dropped by with a copy of the book and we all found it to be a great item to bring in this week for Garden Walk. Learn how to plan your vegetable garden, gather the right tools, build raised beds or garden in containers. The book will teach you how to fertilize, water, and most importantly 'harvest' the rewards of your labor. We are expecting the book to be in stock on Saturday, just in time for Mission Hills Garden Walk. Next time Bunny is in town we will arrange for her to come into the nursery, you can bring your book back in and have her sign it.
