This botanic garden is a paradise on earth. Easy location just by the Caldecott tunnel. If you've never been, you'll be in awe of the beautiful scenery, rare flowers, edibles, ornamental, carnivorous and more than 12,000 fascinating plants! Just GO. It is perfect for an afternoon walk in the forest, stroll along a babbling brook, meandering through a Japanese garden, seeing a real cacao tree or cinnamon bark in the tropical greenhouse...and even chasing butterflies. An amazing place - a true local gem, sure to be a delightful family day.
Tomato seedlings and Sunflowers grow lovely in gallon milk jugs. Good Morning Sunshine and friends of The Lemon Lady,
A simple request. Please save gallon milk jugs. Please rinse them thoroughly after use.
Why, you may ask?
Seedlings are being supplied to community gardens, maybe a kindergarten class, too! Milk jugs make a perfect one gallon potting container to grow healthy, hearty seedlings. I'm rootin' for some fantastic sunflowers to reach the sky and hearts of happy children. Smiles.
I can always use more help with my volunteer seedling donation project. If you are interested in growing seedlings for donation, please inquire. I have volunteer opportunities for that, too. Planting seeds is fun. Ask a child...
