Winter Urban Garden Shopping: Half Moon Bay Nursery
December 4, 2015
Dateline: 2015-11-22 Way back in September, at the end of the summer season, we talked about ours plans for a winter crop. Unfortunately for “life happens” reasons, we didn’t really get around to doing much until November. It’s a little late to get planting for winter, but San Francisco winters are mild and we figured it was worth a shot anyway. A few weeks ago we tried Home Depot for winter plant products… and it was depressing. However with a little research I found the Half Moon Bay Nursery which is less than 30 minutes from SF. It gets mentioned on all sorts of nursery lists for the Bay Area and its Yelp reviews are hard to pass up. Streams of rave reviews like “a destination for any California gardener”, “Best nursery around”, and “has just about anything that you can imagine” sold me, so off we went.
The sadness of Home Depot gardening
November 16, 2015
This weekend was supposed to be the start of the Winter Garden series, so a jaunt to Home Depot was in order for some new (more winter friendly plants). As you can see on the right, that didn’t go so well. The pictured area is the open area of the Home Depot nursery where they normally have rows of plants. I realize it’s a little late to get started, but winter hasn’t even arrived in full force yet!
