Nice prices, Really friendly people. Great selection, and growing.
It was a good experience.
Also, I think Wolfe is the name of the nursery on Ruiz.
I was there today, too! They were very friendly there, offering advice for the lemon and lime trees I bought, even pointing out that there were crepe myrtles on sale for $1.80. Too bad I didn't need any! It was awfully hot and humid, and they were offering free sodas or water, a free pothos ivy with purchase, and a drawing for free mdse. I guess I'll be going back there tomorrow for the mulch that was on sale.

As for the Esperanza, I have some I bought at the beginning of the summer that really went wild after the rains. Before then, they just sort of grew. Something about that rainwater...no matter how much I may water or baby those plants, the rain came through so much better than anything I could have done. Give yours time and see how they grow.

I just made a similar comment on my blog about my shadow turf grass plugs. They're taking forever to fill in, and I water frequently (supposed to water a lot initially to get them established). They've grown, but barely, but the week after some good rains, they really spread. I don't know what it is...

Mother nature, I guess!

It's not the owner of the nursery coming on here and yammering about how awesome their place is, while slamming Rainbow Gardens. It's really not a difficult concept to grasp.
