New payment options available at Native Here!
We are now equipped to accept Master Card and Visa credit cards, and also debit cards.
Minimum credit card purchase is $20. Our setup requires that the actual card be present when we record the transaction. Because the equipment is telephone-based, we will now be writing up all sales in the office.
Are you aware of the volume discount at Native Here? Sometimes you may not find $500 worth of plants at a given time, but you can achieve that amount by purchasing gift certificates to use later.
As of this writing, it is continuously cold day and night. It will be interesting to see how the plants respond. Those that make it through the winter should be pretty hardy plants! Many of the shrubs have leaf buds now that there is a little sunshine.
Many shrubs and trees have lost their leaves, but now you can see their bark and shapely limbs. The dogwoods and some willows have beautiful smooth, red bark. Buckeyes have silver bark. Gooseberries look fierce with their gangly, thorny limbs. Many people want evergreen plants, but deciduous trees and shrubs add variation to your garden. Instead of seeing the same green form you can observe the plant’s change from bare limbs to leafy canopy and back again over the course of a year. It’s like having two different plants in the same spot.
This month we hope that some of the cuttings we took in November will be ready to pot up. Volunteers are welcome whenever the nursery is open.
Plant Fair Planning
If you’d like to be involved in planning the Plant Fair for this coming October, e-mail Charli at email@example.com or come to the nursery on Saturday, February 12 at 1 pm (or earlier to help with nursery tasks).

“East Bay Native Plants 2011” is a CD that contains photos and descriptions of over 400 trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, grasses, ferns, and vines native to Contra Costa and Alameda County. This year, I have been able to make the PDF file easy to navigate as well as adding 80 new species pages and better pictures to existing pages.
The CD is $25.00 or $15.00 if you return your old CD for this new updated one. You can purchase the CD at Native Here Nursery.
