Bay Laurel Garden Center specializes in California native plants and drought tolerant plants suitable for our area, the northern part of San Luis Obispo County. Browse through our extensive stock of quality plants. We are happy to help you select the ideal varieties for your garden.

Our nursery carries a great selection of pottery, statuary and gifts as well as everything you need for a beautiful landscape. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff look foward to meeting you!

During the months of January, February and March, we stock hundreds of varieties of bareroot fruit and nut trees, berry plants, roses and shade trees. Visit our Fruit Trees Online website to find out more.


Spring is for planting! We have a new selection of roses to enhance your garden. We’ll be bringing more in as the season progresses. Don’t see your favorite? If it’s available, we’ll be happy to add it to our collection. Roses react very favorably to fertilization – preferably every 6 weeks. We carry several options. Those pesky little aphids have a way of showing up in spring – we’ll have ladybugs later on and also some non-toxic sprays. See our April Newsletter for more details…


Color! Many double Osteospermums as well as single varieties. The lovely white daisy is a new form of the old favorite Marguerite daisy. It’s called ‘Grandessa’ – note the attractive larger center. This form also comes in yellow and red.

Here’s a carefree planting – a driveway embellished with help from nature. These Euphorbia wulfeniis just reseeded; they receive no additional water and bloom year after year. They do, however, reseed like crazy, but plucking the small seedlings out is an easy chore.


New containers of many shapes, sizes and colors. Place them in your patio, around your pool, on your deck. Some plants do really well in containers, some not so much. We’ll try to help you pick out just the right one!
