This is the time of quiet days, crimson creepers, of mellow afternoons in the ripening garden--the summer seemed as though it would dream on forever.
--Countess von Armin, Elizabeth and her German Garden

Our next scheduled ground plant ship date for East Coast locations is Monday, September 21, 2020 due to Labor Day holiday. Ship dates are determined by travel time so plants do not spend weekends in transit. Please use residential addresses for East Coast shipping to avoid extended transit times.

If temperatures in transit or at destination are projected to be above 80 degrees F, your plant order may be placed on hold to avoid damage. We ship non-plant items every day. Please email us if you have questions about delivery times. We will contact you if weather precludes safe shipping of tender plants. You can also check weather forecasts for points between northern California and your location to see if the weather will be appropriate to ship safely.

We are sorry to report that we no longer grow citrus due to the Asian Citrus Psyllid quarantine.

Many of our plants are not suitable for year-round growing outdoors in some zones. Please check your USDA Zone prior to placing an order so you can make the appropriate selection.

New olive cultivars include Santa Caterina, Nocellara del Belice, Bella di Cerignola, Cailletier and Lucques. These represent some of the most cherished table olives in the world and you'll find out why when you pop one in your mouth.

Michael Michaud's botanical tableware continues to dazzle. Fruits, leaves and bark are transformed into heirloom-quality plates, miniature boxes and serving pieces. His New York foundry is one of the few remaining that continue the ancient art of lost wax casting from natural objects. A new piece, the apple box, is now available and warrants close inspection.
