Our growing grounds and office will be closed September 1st for Labor Day. Perhaps you'll be spending the long week end dreaming of your potential native plant garden, all the savings in water that will bring and the wildlife it will attract? We can help bring your dreams to life with our upcoming seminars;

One of our dreams since the creation of our business was to prove that even a small, start-up business could have a positive impact on the world and be a 'socially responsible' business. We've decided it's time to find out how we are doing. Scroll down this page and you will find a new monthly feature which documents an attempt to find out how, together with our customers, we are succeeding (or failing- we'll find that out!) at impacting the world around us.

Eriogonum'Warriner Lytle'
Warriner Lytle Buckwheat

This tough, drought tolerant Buckwheat combines the hardiness and habitat value of the common Buckwheat, with the versatility of a groundcover. This low-growing, dependable plant is adaptable and easy to grow. Fine dark-green, needle-like green leaves are topped in late spring and summer by clusters of pinkish-white flowers that turn to a rusty brown in late summer. Warriner Lytle Buckwheat reaches 1-2' high and its arching branches will spread 4'-5'. It makes a great slope ground-cover, is a must for a butterfly garden or bird habitat, or plant beside pathways where you can enjoy the blooms and the many butterflies it will attract. This is a favorite nectar source for many butterfly species, especially Blues. As the summer progresses the birds will flock to feed on the seeds.  Will tolerate clay when planted on a slope. Provide occasional water. Introduced by Theodore Payne Foundation

Every purchase of our "Plant of the Month" at our retail nursery partners will generate a $0.50 donation to PLANT WITH PURPOSE to help villages in third world economies restore farms, plant trees and create local jobs.


Tijuana River Estuary


If the heat is getting to you we recommend a stroll in the coastal area known as the Tijuana River Estuary. The Tijuana Estuary is the largest coastal wetland in Southern California and it is located on the international border between the U.S. and Mexico. This area is a treasure trove of important plant species that provide essential habitat for many wildlife species. The Tijuana River Estuary is one of the few salt marshes remaining in Southern California, where over 90% of wetland habitat has been lost to development. The site is an essential breeding, feeding and nesting ground and key stopover point on the Pacific Flyway for over 370 species of migratory and native birds, including six endangered species. The Reserve offers four miles of walking trails, taking visitors into prime bird watching areas and down to the river mouth where the Tijuana River meets the Pacific Ocean. Visitors may explore the park on their own or join one of the free guided nature and bird walks on weekends. Numerous interpretive and educational programs are offered at the site. Check here for more details and directions.



An increasing number of US countries have pledged to become socially responsible. The term can be applied liberally to any company that takes full responsibility for its activities which surpass areas of pure economic interest. Companies such as Microsoft, Starbucks, and Ben and Jerry's all claim to be socially responsible. These companies donate millions, pay extra for fair trade goods, and support multiple organizations in communities across the country. It is hard to argue that these companies aren't being socially responsible, at the least they demonstrate an acute social interest. But, these are all companies worth billions of dollars. Can a small company truly be called socially responsible? And, can that company make any permanent or lasting change to our world? Read more..
