Now accepting pre-orders for bamboo plants and plant sale on Saturday, March 20

Now accepting pre-orders for bamboo plants.

We are now taking pre-orders for bamboo plants. Plants that are pre-ordered will be available for pick-up here in Rocklin after April 9, 2010. If you have already placed a pre-order (paid a deposit with an order) ignore this message.

If you haven't, pre-ordering bamboo plants is highly recommended if you are looking for a special variety or a large quantity of bamboo, especially for popular varieties like "Giant Clumping Timber Bamboo", "Alphonse Karr", "Mexican Weeping" and "Black Bamboo." It doesn't cost any more to pre-order and we set your plants aside for you.

Here is how it works - send me an e-mail at with the types of bamboo you want, the quantity and the size. 5 gallon plants are $39 each and 15 gallon plants are $95 each. We ask for 50% up front to place the order with the remaining balance payable upon pick-up. We can accept a check or can invoice via Paypal (which allows you to pay by credit card, no membership required an its really easy). Pre-orders need to be completed (e-mail in and 50% deposit paid) no later than 5 pm, Saturday, March 27.

Plant sale on Saturday, March 20 at McKinley Park in Sacramento. We'll be there along with many other nurseries.

On Saturday, March 20, we will be at the Sacramento Perennial Plant Club's 10th Annual Plant Sale at the Shepard Arts and Garden Center located in McKinley Park (3330 McKinley Boulevard, Sacramento). The sale is open to the public and will have a large variety of plant vendors there from bamboo to succulents to fruit trees to water plants.

Guest speaker Thomas Fischer, Editor-in-Chief of Timber Press Books will be speaking on Mediterranean Garden Perennials at the event.

If you love unique plants and garden art, this is a fun event and worth attending. Hope to see you there!
