I do not know about anyone else, but one thing I have noticed since COVID this year is it seems like once a week, I get gardening catalogs. Catalogs I have not received before.
But I must admit they are interesting to look through and see all the beautiful pictures of the flowers, shrubs, and vegetables, a lot of old varieties but a lot of new ones-at least new to me. This made me wonder if the pictures are touched up like the ones you see in the food magazines. I say this because I saw a TV program that showed how the food magazines touch up some of the food to make it look so good.
But back to the catalogs, these are the catalogs I have received from out of state:
Territorial Seed Company, Burpee Seed, Johnny's Selected Seeds, and Breck's.
Now-on to some of my favorite nurseries that I have been known to buy from. I am sure most of you know about the local nurseries in our area if not here is a short list:
Morningsun Herb Farm, 6137 Pleasant Valley Rd, Vacaville
Lemuria Nursery, 7820 Serpa Ln, Dixon
Mid-City Nursery, 3695 Broadway , American Canyon
El Rancho Nursery, 3098 Ellsworth Rd. Vacaville
Some of my favorite out of county nurseries are:
Annies Annuals, 740 Market Ave, Richmond
Talinis Nursery, 5601 Folsom Blvd , Sacramento
The Plant Foundry, 3500 Broadway Sacramento
And of course, High Hand Nursery, 3750 Taylor Rd, Loomis
The Petaluma Seed Bank, 110 Petaluma, Petaluma
Flowers by The Sea is an online-only, which specializes in salvias (sages), I have ordered from them and have been very satisfied. So, enjoy nursery shopping. I know I will.
