This past Sunday Matti and I left San Francisco and headed over the Bay Bridge to Alameda. We promised my aunt Debbie that we’d transform her cute little yard in to a succulent heaven months ago (more info on that project to come). We brought a ton of succulents from our backyard, but knew we needed to create a bit of non-succulent interest. We decided to get 6-7 shrub type plants. The question was…where to go? I’ve known about Annie’s Annuals & Perennials for quite some time. They even send me their catalog, and their website has an impressive amount of information. We decided to give it a shot. I studied the website’s available plants the night before and came prepared with a list of things I thought would work.
We were in awe. Why we never went to Annie’s until last Sunday is unknown and a little embarrassing. I don’t know where to begin. Let me start with their staff was super friendly and helpful. They gave us the lay of the land and were knowledgeable about their plants. Their selection of plants is insanely good. This isn’t the run of the mill stuff you find at your local nursery. Hard-to-find species and varieties at great prices.
If you can’t get to Annie’s amazing nursery, you can always place an order online. We’ll be going back to Annie’s very soon!
