New native nursery in Ventura county

gobluedjmJuly 17, 2010

I stumbled upon this place yesterday in Ventura. Website link is below. I was impressed with his inventory and not just natives. He has other drought tolerant plants, succulants, and vegetables. A flyer he gave me said citrus and other fruit trees in stock.

He's been there just 9 months so I hope in this economy he makes it. Prices were about the same I have seen other nurseries.

His website has inventory but he has more than just those listed.

He also has 2 lecture classes in August from well known speakers.

I am in no way affiliated with him or any profits. I just hope he stays in business cuz its just an hour away.

Ooh! I drove right past that a couple weeks ago and didn't know it was there. If I had seen it there would have been some tire marks in the road there.

I go to Ventura several times a year. I'll be ducking in there next time I'm in town!

Thanks for passing it along

It's convenient for the freeway and can be seen from the freeway. Too much red tape for a sign he said.
It's small but he's got lots of different plants not tons of just a few plants.

I just paid them a visit today. I meant to just look but three plants mugged me and jumped into the car.

The people there are friendly and helpful. I will stop by again next time I'm in town.

I came away with a toyon, fuchsia flowered gooseberry and a chaparral currant 'dancing tassels'.

I will use the currant in the spot I had intended to put a Japanese maple. It has such pretty leaves and peeling cinnamon bark. I think it will be lovely viewed from my picture window.

The gooseberry is going under an elm in the side yard and the toyon is going in the back to block the neighbors view of the back of the house.

This is a great resource. They are the nicest people and the prices are reasonable.

I've attended many of the Saturday workshops...many are free or reasonably priced. Please support Nopalito...We need them to do well and stay in business!

Check out their website for upcoming events on Designing Native Plant Gardens by Carol Bornstein, Lili Singer, Lisa Burton, and nore
