Fall is here, and it’s a great season to be tending to your garden or potted plants, either getting things ready for the cold season or planting some cool weather plants and edibles. A great place to start is Sunnyside Nursery in San Anselmo. They’ve got a wonderful variety of flowers, herbs, bulbs, shrubs, trees – pretty much anything that grows. They’ve also got all of the tools and extras you need to actually accomplish the work, such as gardening tools, soil amendments (i.e., fertilizers), potting soil, bark, etc. Also, the next two weekend are their semi-annual “growing grounds” sale at their Fairfax location, which is on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard in Fairfax (map).
One of the most valuable things they’ve got is expert advisors. I was in recently and described a problem that I was having with my potted plants, and they quickly diagnosed it as overwatering. I never knew there was such a thing as “water burn”, but now I do. After that, I cut way back and my potted plants look a million percent better. You’re not going to get that kind of advice at Home Depot!
