The nursery is full of tomato and pepper starts. Best selection of varieties is now. But, you’ll need to protect them from cold, wet days and cold nights. Come on in and we’ll tell you how.

Nature at it’s best. A Pacific Tree frog looking cool on a blanket of native moss. He’s ignoring the bittercress that’s sprouted next to him.

Oxalis oregana ~ native groundcover for shade.

Native Asters are perfect for pollinator gardens.

This is the best time of year to see Epimediums in bloom. There’s a beautiful selection in the nursery. They’re perfect for dry shade areas and also grow well in pots. This one is growing under a large potted Japanese maple, in the Vollmer garden.
