We have plenty of wonderful garden ideas!

The Ridge Road Garden Center is situated on one acre in the foothills in Pine Grove, CA; the gift shop is 1600 square feet of unique and often one-of-a-kind gifts. There’s usually something to do in your garden at any point of time in the year. It could be  filling your summer gardens with lovely shrubs, summer blooming bulbs, interesting grasses, or groundcovers. We have robust vegetable seedlings, aids for hands-on spring chores or tools for preparing for this years busy summer season. We have Jumbo six-packs of pansies and snap dragons, 4” flower packs, and more! Come see our beautiful selection of Roses! 

 

We have lattice and arbors to hang your creations and lighting to show it all off! Come and see our beautiful items and fun table décor items, plus our assortment of cute and seasonal garden accessories to dress up your home & gardens. The Garden Center has all you need! 

We offer Gift certificates, bird houses, house plants, yard art, potted plants, bird baths, unique planters, ornamental grasses & more!🌱🌿🌼💝 Check out our abundance of lovely perennials as the seasons progress. Remember: If you want a stunning show of color this summer, this is the final planting time for mid-season summer and late summer bulbs like Asiatic lilies, dahlias, Calla lilies, Dutch Irises, and Gladiolus. Added bonus for our area is that many bulbs are deer resistant! Extend the bloom season by planting bulbs in succession, weeks apart!

Blue fescue is a most amazing grassy plant which is ice blue/gray and stands up to the hottest day, or relaxes in a bit of shade. In summer, it throws out seed heads on long, willowy stems from the center of the spiky, blue mass. This is a very drought-tolerant plant. Besides the usual favorites, consider planting something new and different, like Dahlias, Anemones, Gladiolus, Ranunculus, Oriental Lilies, Buddleia, Canna, or Freesia. All lovely, colorful and they bloom annually for glorious color explosions! Try a Rose of Sharon with lovely flowers. It's drought tolerant, too!

Annuals such as Impatiens, Mahonia, salvia, Mandevilla, violas, Coleus, pansies and petunias, nasturtiums and geraniums all have long bloom periods and are great for every garden. There is such an abundance of seasonal perennials for your gardens. Don't forget about bluebells; blue Scilla are the perfect low-maintenance flowers. These gorgeously hued blooms can thrive in Zones 2-10 and are ultra-durable, blooming for years in your garden. Wonderful ornamental grasses will enhance your gardens, also. Always think ahead to the next season when planting!

The beautiful deer resistant flowers on butterfly bushes continue blooming until the first frost. The clusters of purple, white, or yellow flowers form a cone shape. These shrubby plants grow as perennials and are evergreen or deciduous, depending on your climate. The beauty of growing butterfly bush cultivars in your garden is that they still flower when many other plants have stopped. Their stiff stems and flower clusters create attractive cut flowers for fall and winter displays. Despite their delicate scent and appearance, butterfly bushes are astoundingly resilient and easy to grow, exhibiting hardiness from zones 5 through 9.

Perennials - Did you know pansies can handle the cool weather? They’re great at it, and this is good news for anyone who would like a burst of color in the early summer days before the heat wipes them out. Romantic hydrangeas, climbing clematis and more perennial beauties infuse your garden with color, texture and fragrance for years to come. Grasses also make attractive accents to grow in  problem landscape spots. Don't forget about those hard-working ground covers! Many have small flowers. 

Blue fescue is a most amazing grassy plant which is ice blue/gray and stands up to the hottest day, or relaxes in a bit of shade. In summer, it throws out seed heads on long, willowy stems from the center of the spiky, blue mass. This is a very drought-tolerant plant.

Year-round plants for landscaping can also include plants that have berries, such as viburnum, barberry or holly. They may also be plants with interesting seed heads throughout winter, like Echinacea and Sedum Autumn Joy.
 

Some of the best performers in Zone 7 and 8 like ours are arugulas, beets, swiss chard, mustard, cauliflower, radishes, carrots, cabbage, peas, and turnips.

Spread manure, rotted sawdust, rotted straw, and shredded leaves over the garden and plow them under; you'll be surprised at the difference this organic matter will make in the fertility, physical structure and water-holding capacity of the soil.

No matter what you’re planting, I hope your garden is a source of pleasure as well as sustenance! Have fun in the garden, teach your kids to garden and enjoy the harvest!

Available seasonally!
