New this year:  Renee’s Garden Seeds  Our customers requested this wonderful line of seeds sourced from sustainable and organic growers.  Start your seedlings now! Hot this year: Edible Container Gardening and Renee’s Seeds has a variety of specialty seeds just for container planting. Watch our event page for upcoming classes on container gardening!


Starting from seed not your thing? Stop by and pick up your favorite tomato, pepper,  herbs and plants in six packs and 4 inch containers. Just a quick word of warning…the average last date of frost in Merced is April 1st. So if you plant early, be prepared to cover your tender plants if we have a frost warning!
