Master Gardeners, August 25

The UC Cooperative Extension LA County Master Gardeners are back

...and they've planted up a storm to give away 

This month pick up some packets of seeds and while you're at it, one of these lovely plants, while they last. FREE!

Heirloom Bloomsdale Spinach, which grows best during cool weather in the Spring and Fall, and here in SoCal, in the winter, too.

Spicy Globe Container Basil and Italian Genovese Basil will keep good company with all those tomatoes you're now harvesting.

A few Heirloom Dill (Leafy Diana) have come up, so they'll bring those.

If the Pixie Cabbages begin to emerge, they'll be on hand as well..

There'll be a couple of Calendula pot marigolds, pretty to look at and edible too.

Happy to say our Brillliant Rainbow Quinoa is coming up beautifully -- that has been a popular choice; you eat the seeds but young leaves are edible too! Click here to learn more about quinoa.

Green Salad Bowl lettuce, one of the most popular leaf lettuces for the home garden.
The White Stem Bok Choy is roaring to life.

They'll have a few Mild Mustards to share.

And everyone loves Kale -- so they're bringing the Vates Dwarf Blue with the super curly edged compact leaves.

Six Pack - waiting to be refilled by Master Gardeners
It's a prolific month! Come see us and bring us your questions; we'd LOVE to hear your success stories, too!! Don't forget to bring your leftover plant six packs so our Master Gardeners can keep bringing seedlings to the market. Thanks!
