Spring has sprung! Here's the latest from our garden to yours.
...for giving me the things I need, the sun and the rain and the appleseed. Do you remember this song from when you were a kid? Its spring, the apples are blooming, and we're remembering Johnny Appleseed. Johnny was a missionary and an American pioneer nurseryman who became a legend due to his kind, generous ways, conservation, and spread of apples across the US. Check out our apples and see why Johnny was so enamored.
One of the many things I've learned in my days living and travelling in the southern US is that Southerners love their unique sayings and Azaleas are a must in every yard! If you want a touch of the South in your Spring garden check out our Azaleas and read this article from Southern Living.
In 1995 when the new yellow coned 'Sir John Thouron' Clivia was introduced to Americans it caused a huge buzz in horticulture circles and was even featured in the New York Times. And for good reason, the flowering plant was priced for only the most affluent of collectors. Today the yellow Clivia is available just for you, and at a price we think you'll like, at Plantenders.
A Have you dreamed of a community where you can work with other creatives? So have we. Join us as we build our Creative Community in the coastal foothills of Orange County.
Our founder's daughter, Laurie Ellen, recently joined Plantenders as our Director of Special Projects. Painting, drawing, potting, floral arrangements, baking, sewing, crafting, dance, and yoga have always been a huge part of Laurie Ellen's life. It's a dream come true for her to be working with her dad and starting a Creative Community within her dad's beautiful nursery.
What is a Creative Community? While we're still letting the definition of Creative Community emerge - at Plantenders we feel incredibly blessed and deeply grateful to get to work in such a beautiful place. Our all-around-awesome-get-it-done-guy, Armando, opens his arms wide and looks around with deep gratitude when he says "I get to work out here! This is my office!!" Our grateful hearts want to share the blessing.
If you're a creative and are interested in teaching classes/workshops, have a need for some work and/or business space, or if you just want to join our community, send us your email address below.
See you at the nursery!
Heart, Laurie Ellen
