Trick or Treat

Witches, goblins, princesses, and more will be walking the streets this Saturday, drive slowly. What a fun time Halloween is, a day when you can dress up and pretend to be someone or something else. Come in dressed in your costume and see Claudia for a FREE gardening treat.

Our fall clearance sale ends once Halloween is over, you still have 4 more days of great savings and as we hoped the fountain inventory is shrinking daily. With all fountains in stock at 50% off they are moving quickly.

Fall temperatures bring new plants to the nursery for your garden. China has a nice selection of mums, pansies, violas, and kales. Enrique has been feeding and pruning the roses, many are setting new buds and blooming he has included them in the clearance sale. Juan has the trees cleaned and fed, just waiting to help load them in your car or for the taller ones see Fernando to schedule Richard to deliver them to you. Our other Richard is ever so happy to walk the nursery with you and select just the right plant for your problem area, he works Sundays and Mondays. And if you want to capture some of the rain we'll get this winter you certainly want to talk with Tiger.

Now if you are still confused about how to get the maximum out of your garden with the water restrictions, or you are ready to redo all or part of your garden please come in and see Fausto. Fausto has been designing gardens for the last 20+ years, I'm always amazed at what he can come up with just by looking at a plot of dirt.

Everyone at Mission Hills Nursery works here because we enjoy what we do and we want to help you. If you ever have a gardening need we hope you turn to us first, we'll be 100 years old next year and we're still "growing".

Container Seminar

Are you envious of the containers you see planted at your friend's home? Do you have limited gardening space? Or has it become harder to get down on your hands and knees to dig in the soil? You will then want to come to Mission Hills Nursery on Saturday November 7, 2009 for a seminar and step by step how to plant container gardens.

Kristi and China will demonstrate how to pull together a few different containers for Fall. You will then be able to ask them to shop with you for a look that will make your friends jealous.

Seminar is FREE and begins at 11:30 am. If you have a container at home you really like bring it to the seminar and plant it at the nursery after you've gotten some tips. This way you can play with the look before you actually plant it. Your plant, soil, and container purchases will be discounted 20%.
Sign up at the nursery by 11/05/09 and you will be entered into a drawing to take home one of the containers Kristi and China put together.

Kate's Sale

I was reading the San Diego Floral Associations 100th year book and there were a few ads which our founder, Kate Session had run back in the early 1900's. One which caught my attention was her Fall Clearance Sale and I decided to follow her.

Beginning Friday October 2nd and running through Saturday October 31st all plant material in stock 5 gallon and larger will be discounted 25%. Just as Kate had done on the shrubs and trees she had in stock.

Sale price is limited to stock on hand, does not apply to California Natives grown by Moosa Creek Nursery. And all sales are FINAL, no returns or exchanges.

Fall is the time to plant and we are looking forward to seeing you in the nursery.
