When life gives you lemons—make lemonade!

This colorful plant, often referred to as Million Bells or Mini This is our most popular citrus because it produces an abundance of delicious fruit nearly year-round. Surprisingly, Meyer Lemons are not a true lemon but rather a cross between a true lemon and a mandarin. It is treasured by “foodies” who use its juice and rind in recipes for salad dressings, desserts and more. It can be substituted for a true lemon, though it tends to have a slightly sweeter flavor. This tree requires at least 6 hours of sun, good draining soil, and regular fertilizing and watering until established. It can take an occasional light frost. Once established, it is very drought tolerant. Meyer Lemons are also excellent container plants.

June Garden Guide


Check water systems to ensure they are working properly and be sure you are not wasting precious water. Install Drip Irrigation Systems to more efficiently water your garden.


Invest in Hose Nozzles with a shut-off feature to prevent excess loss of water when hand watering pots and garden areas.


Monitor your plants for pests. Bring the pest into the nursery in a plastic bag so we can try to identify the problem and direct you to the right product to remedy the situation. We stock complete lines of organic and conventional pest control products. Three products that are helpful to organic gardeners: Captain Jack’s Dead Bug Brew (with Spinosad) for insect control, Concern’s Copper Soap Fungicide or Serenade for disease control, and Sluggo for snail and slug control.


Clean ponds and fountains. We have products that can help reduce algae and clarify the water. We also have a nice selection of pond plants to add beauty to your water feature.


Deadhead flowers and lightly fertilize. We use ¼ - ½ strength Maxsea All Purpose Fertilizer on all our flowers, hanging baskets, and veggies on a weekly basis, to ensure they receive constant nutrients for healthy growth and an abundance of flowers.


Mulch areas with Western Bark Chips to help give your garden a finished and professional appearance. Mulching also helps save water, reduce weeds and retain nutrients. For best results, we recommend a 2” layer on the soil surface. Each 2 cu.ft. bag will cover 12 square feet.


Replace old, woody perennials and annuals. We carry money-saving sizes in Jumbo 6 packs and in 4” pots that will grow and fill in quickly to help you stretch your budget. We can help you find some new combinations that will freshen up your look.


Stake and feed your tomatoes and other container raised vegetables with natural Gardner & Bloome Tomato & Vegetable and Fertilizer.  We also have an assortment of Tomato Cages  in fun colors and various sizes.


Harvest your early producing fruit crops such as cherries, apricots, berries, etc. If you don’t have an orchard, but you’ve been thinking about having one in your own backyard, choose from our selection of plants that produce Edible Fruits including Citrus, Apricots, Apples, Blueberries, Cherries, Grapes, Pineapple Guavas, Nectarines, Peaches, Pears, Plums, Pluots, Persimmons, Pomegranates, and assorted Berries.

Water Wisely

We want to encourage plant lovers to garden wisely by following a few important water conserving tips. For more info go to

  1. 1. Spread 1-3 inches of mulch around all plants especially newly planted ones. For each inch of mulch you use, you reduce water usage up to ten percent.
  2. 2. Check your soil for moisture BEFORE watering to see if it is really necessary. Established gardens can often go for weeks without needing water depending on your soil type and the weather.
  3. 3. When you do water, apply it slowly and for an extended period of time. This will help reduce run off and encourage deep roots.
  4. 4. Follow your Water District Rules and Regulations for outdoor water use.
  5. 5. Do not over fertilize with high nitrogen fertilizers. Nitrogen increases soft new growth which then requires more water to support the plant.
  6. 6. Reduce the size of plants by pruning excess growth.
