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.

The great transition has begun – the roses are happily situated in their pots. The available ones for planting now are in bio-degradable containers so as not to disturb the roots. We have rose trees, hybrid teas, floribundas and climbers. Blueberries, raspberries and blackberries are for sale in the black quart pots. We still have lots of asparagus roots for the edible garden. Bareroot trees remain – but not for long, so if you’re interested, hurry over!

You can still plant some cool weather vegetables. We have a very good supply of varieties of kale, Swiss chard, spinach, lettuce, cauliflower and more. New item from Armstrong Growers – edible flowers. You will find calendulas and violas, along with the herbs. Expect to see cilantro, parsley, thyme, sage and other herbs to jazz up your cooking. Although we did not have bareroot artichokes, you can find them in 4″ pots and in 1 and 5 gallon containers – they can be quite ornamental. Another perennial vegetable is rhubarb in 4″ pots.

We always aim to have a good supply of Native California plants. Right now we have some spectacular Salvia apiana in 5 gallon containers. This Salvia is very drought tolerant – the tall white flowers are second to the fragrant, silvery leaves. A few other natives currently in the nursery include Penstemon Margarita bop, Salvia Celestial Blue, many manzanitas, and Rhus ovata – a terrific evergreen shrub that is very drought tolerant.
