Succulent Sale-O-Rama Saturday!


The garden is almost completely ripped out with the exception of some big herbaceous plants that wouldn’t deal well with being moved and the California natives. It still looks a million times better than when we moved in. Remember the mattress vine that ate half the yard and part of the house? Hopefully the remaining plants will be able to tough it out this summer with no water.  Anyways, if you haven’t heard we’re moving back to Wisconsin at the end of the month and selling off our massive succulent collection this Saturday. The sale starts at 9AM Saturday, April 14th at 1344 La Playa Street, SF CA. We’ve got more than just succulents, too! Lots of pots, tons of glass containers for making terrariums, beach rocks, chairs, yard art, books, shelves and much much more. Cuttings in 4″ pots (like the ones pictured above) will be $3 each, one gallons $5 and two gallons $10. The sale goes until 5PM.

Look at all the crap for sale!

You could become the proud new owner of a creepy plastic skeleton, rusty lunchbox full of Faucaria or a super overgrown box full of mystery Aeoniums and friends!

Rockin rock pots!

We’ve got lots more rocks than pictured here. I recommend busting out a festive can of spray paint to liven them up.

Purple Aeoniums

So here’s the deal. We didn’t have time to label anything, but we’ll be happy to ID stuff at the sale (some stuff we’re just not sure). I recommend asking me (Megan) as Matti may make something up. I win the geek award for plant ID, but there are quite a few plants we have that I may need to bust out the search field on our flickr stream to figure out in the following days. Feel free to take pics of stuff once you get home and post them on our facebook page for us to identify. We’d love to see pics of our plants in a couple months, too! I think the above Aeonium is some sort of arboreum hybrid, but we got a cutting or two at least four years ago. We’re only positive that it’s super cute and adds contrast pretty much anywhere.

Salamander spotted

While moving some huge pots around Matti found a few little salamanders hanging out. We haven’t seen any for at least a year. There will be way more plants available at the sale than pictured above. Hope to see you there!

P.S. We’re having a girl!
