Peacock Horticultural Nursery

Now this place is a real treat. Stuff you won't find anywhere else. Stuff Peacock himself couldn't resist and had to buy and propagate. Last time I was there I scarfed up a beautiful Chilean Bellflower (I don't even know if I got the pink one or the white one) because I saw them clamoring over the back of the house....

Sometimes I wonder if it will ever be Thursday again so I can stop in. They are closed Monday to Wednesday, and that can seem like forever.

Gosh, Susan. You're a regular at all of my favorite local nurseries. We must have run into each other a dozen times without knowing.

What I love are all of the Heronswood plants he bought before Burpee had a chance to ruin Heronswood.

If you need more Chilean Bellflowers, you'll get a fabulous deal on them at Sonoma Horticultural Nursery. Polo grew his Lapagerias from seed several years ago, and the one-gallon plants are only $12 ($9 if you catch the 25%-off sale in February).

Guess I'll have to go and do it now for sure....

If you go all the way to the eastern perimeter of the nursery, you might even find some tables with Lapagerias in 4-inch pots for a ludicrously low price, unless they've all been repotted.

LOVE Peacock! We always make sure to visit. I am in lust for his golden locust tree! Great selection of sempervivums too.
