Open Gardens this Morning!

 In General

It might be a little nippy early this morning, but it’s finally warming up and they’re predicting a high of 77 this afternoon. We never did actually freeze so all the butterfly and hummingbird plants are ready to trim back and turn into cuttings. We also had one female papaya (a first-generation Caribbean red so it’s not GMO) blow half-way over, She’s so tough that she’s now growing along the ground but she really would appreciate a happy home where she can grow up instead of sideways. (We can find a male to transplant if you don’t already have one.)

For the first time ever, we’ll be asking for donations on potted tomatoes to benefit the family of one of the most fun and incredibly generous gardeners you’ll ever meet. We’ll have both the Everglade and “ugly” tomatoes rooted and/or in pots, many with baby fruit. You-digs are still free, as are seeds. Speaking of seeds, now is the time to get your Daikon radish in the ground. They’ll handle a little freeze and they’re my personal favorite green. The radish itself — also called mooli by my Hindu friends — is one of most utritious around. And it’s so easy to grow, it’s practically a weed. It pops up in places I know I didn’t plant it, and it’s literally outgrowing the weeds in one spot where I spilled a little bit of seed. (The little boy is holding a radish his mom grew from our free seeds — there is a child behind that plant, if you look carefully!)


Rejuvenating Neem Leaf Cream Half-Off Through Tomorrow

We actually took down the “Santa’s special” on rejuvenating neem leaf cream as planned on Dec. 20 but got so many calls that we reposted it for January. It’s probably the last time we’ll put it on sale this year, so if you’ve been using it (or thinking about trying it), now is the time.

Check out these highlights from the reviews. And don’t forget it’s just $8.99 for two full ounces while it’s on sale – compare that to what you’re using now!

We’re still trimming trees so chew sticks are still half off too. They’ll be available through the winter, as long as it doesn’t freeze, which isn’t predicted but we’ll see what happens through the next month. Fresh neem leaf — as expected — looks sad this time of year so we’ve taken it and ceremonial branches off the site except for backorders. Let us know if it’s critically important that you get some — it may have some yellow spots but they’re normal for short days of winter.

Prices to Rise in February

We’ve postponed it as long as we can, but prices on practically everything we buy have gone up as world-wide demand for neem increases and shipping costs skyrocket. Nothing will change until the week of Feb. 4 but we think it’s only fair that we let you know in advance.


Over the next year, we’ll focus on creating value-oriented products for regular customers rather than offering discounts to new ones (one of our personal pet peeves). We’ll also continue to offer half-price specials on selected products on a monthly (not daily or weekly basis).

As always thank you for reading our newsletter!
