Free plants in the Santa Cruz area.

There is a community garden closing in Capitola. It is on Jade St. between 45th and 47th. They have extended the deadline to April 30, but then everything will be bulldozed. I hate to hear news like that.

garden listing

I went there on Sunday and got a bunch of cuttings of a old white rose and a red HT. If you want to try to dig up the whole bush you are welcome to it. I couldn't dig that big of a bush. I think I will go back and get cuttings of a crab apple tree I saw there.

There are also lots of other plants you can dig up. I got some celery plants, 2 kinds of mint, borage, unknown veggie or herb, tree dahlia roots and cuttings and some bulbs with iris or glad type leaves but the bulbs don't look like those. There are still morning glories, passion vines, nastirium (sp?), mint, borage, comfrey, cilantro, chili peppers, fennel, heirloom roses and more....
