Looking For Organic Veggies, Herbs & Fruit Trees?

I certainly have been on the search for organic starter plants for my vegetable garden for the past few weekends. The ones I’ve seen aren’t that great, and I just got a newsletter from the Healdsburg Nursery and voila! They now have organic veggies, herbs, and fruit trees! They have organic basil, broccoli, cabbage, chard, cauliflower, celery, herbs, lettuce, merlons, parsley, rhubarb, squash, tomatoes, and zucchini. They also have fruit trees such as almond, apple, apricot, cherry, fig, nectarine, peach, pear persimmon, plum, prune, and walnut trees.

Healdsburg Nursery is located at 12950 Old Redwood Highway in Healdsburg. They’re open from 9:00AM to 5:30PM, 7 days a week. Healdsburg Nursery opened its doors to the public in the summer of 1991. Although it was built from scratch that year, it looks as if it’s always been there. Michael and a couple of friends designed and built the nursery with that old look in mind. The nursery office and gift shop were designed to look like an old farmhouse, the shade house designed to simulate the shape of a barn. Michael’s background as a landscape contractor came in handy – he says building the nursery was like a big landscaping project.

The result is a beautifully arranged nursery, inviting to gardeners. When you arrive, you will see the impressive shade house right away and want to go see what’s inside. You will find well-tended shade plants like daphne, rhododendrons, azaleas, ferns, and many other plants of interest. All about the nursery you will find delightful statuary and fountains tucked in and around a broad selection of plants – little stone mushrooms, a fountain bowl holding an otter on his back, a young girl holding a basket of flowers, and many others. There are stone table and bench sets and garden furniture made from wood.

I’ll be heading there this weekend, and I hope you guys drop by soon! I’ll post photos of the veggies I get next week! Have a wonderful weekend!
