At the nursery we’re focusing on some new houseplants for terrariums and wall panels and other indoor uses for the winter season that is upon us. See the list of plants we have and are growing and the rest we should have available any day now at the nursery.
See anything you like? Anything important that we’re missing, since the list is so small? Let Ian know!
We are excited to have these new small colored pots.
Well, we don’t have them yet. These were at the Philadelphia Garden Show, so if you were there you already know what we’re talking about, but if not then you are as excited as us for the preview. You are excited, aren’t you?
I’ve gone ahead and revamped our Cactus Jungle website. Phew!
We have over 1400 plant pages and over 4000 images, so they haven’t all been updated yet, but the rest of the site is fully new and revised and the plant pages will follow behind over the next few weeks. 1400 is a lot of pages to update!
So this is Berkeley, so this is one of the toys we’ll be carrying at the nursery. The rest of the toys we carry are tiny things for terrariums, but not this one. This remarkable presidential figure is 4″h. The minimum order is 3, but I may get 6 what with this being Berkeley (did I mention that?) and a presidential election year.
We have ended our Winter Hours experiment (opening at 10a, closed tuesdays) and are now back to being open 7 days a week. Being alert at 9:00am is going to be tough though, but here we are, the gates are open and where are you?
We are expanding the gift selection at the nursery to include bird hooks and squirrel pots. Yes!
Bird hooks. We hang little planters off them. They work well with Tillandsias too and they come in Squirrel hooks too. Yo. Now please be sure to understand that we only add these as pure nursery goods. You won’t see us use these hooks for coats. No. Only for hanging plants and plants and other plants too.
Well played! This self watering squirrel in a log pot. We put a fern on top for fun. Fun.
It appears that Keith’s mousetraps have worked to stop the little critter that has been eating our organic fertilizers. I won’t share Ian’s photo with you, but let’s just say that the mouse did not decide to go for the bait in the no-kill traps.
It’s the continuation of our Obama in the Garden series from this past spring. What happened was that we sold out of all of our Obama figures, so that was that.
Yes, that means that we have Obama figures back in stock. And for those of you who were wondering – No! They do not have any Romney figures available and you know we’re in Berkeley right? Liberal Berkeley? Oh yeah, now it makes sense.
It’s my last Obama in the Garden, as this is the last of our Obama toys for sale. We had a good run – 4 cases! 6 blog posts! – but I think we’ve seen enough of the Obama toy in our garden. Unless this one doesn’t sell this christmas season and then I may keep it and have him poke his head out in the garden for years to come.
Cell phone photos get put through cell phone filters. It’s the way of the world now. Obama stands among succulents like Pachyveria and Sedum. Plus a horned lizard as it so happens. That’s also the way of the world.
