Our Western Sword Fern is ideally suited to planting at this time of year. Under redwoods and the like, they thrive with little light. Fall rains should help them get established in time for our cool coastal summer.
Fig ‘Black Jack’
A staff favorite, this is hands-down our most popular variety. Dark purple skin and deep red flesh, multiple crops per year, and a manageable size when full grown, plant three! The fruit is similar to Black Mission.
Old timers know that we have always stocked a large selection of these garden aristocrats. Forty varieties in this smaller, more affordable size include many of the well-known ironclad varieties, and the collectible Maddenii’s.
Winter in the Bay Area is a great time to plant these, and most varieties tolerate temperatures in the 30’s just fine. You’ll find lemons, limes, kumquats, mandarins, blood oranges and navel oranges among the hundreds of dwarf trees now in stock.
