We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them into a pot with moist soil. Give the roots opportunity to reachdown for water. Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer. How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater. Water well and allow your plants to dry out. The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

SALE plants may require additional freight payment

Rain, Water and Gardening

Drought or no Drought

Succulents make sense

Succulents require one fifth of the water that most flowering plants need and have some beautiful flowers to exhibit for it.

Cactus have a most amazing array of color and texture in their flowers.

In addition to the water saved, the time and effort required to take care of succulents is far less. Succulents are forgiving. If you break a branch, you can put it right back into the pot or start a new plant. With non succulents, when a branch is broken an arduous process of rooting in water begins.

California, Georgia, Florida and Alabama are just a few of the states afflicted by drought. In San Diego, commercial growers have been forced to cut back on their water usage with fines great enough to put them out of business. The cost of water is going to go up. Authorities say that we
may be facing water rationing for local agriculture.

Suggestions: Never waste natural resources.

People living in areas with lots of rain, don't consider water as important as those living in dry zones. Begin to honor our nature and our natural resources.
They won't last forever.

If you are anything like me, you have lots of indoor plants in addition to those outdoors. Keep a jar or pitcher at your kitchen sink waiting to catch the cold water coming out before the hot water you are waiting for. Use it to water your indoor plants. If you get lots of rain, get a rain barrel and collect rainwater.

I write these suggestions not because I think they are brilliant but to get you thinking of what you can do.

If you have some simple water saving ideas, send them to us. They will be considered and possibly added to this page.
