This is the perfect time to plant perennials!
Soquel Nursery has generously donated hundreds of Salvia Greggii ( Autumn Sage ) which are a favorite of hummingbirds and butterflies!These airy salvias bloom summer – fall, are drought tolerant and grow to about 3’x3′.
They will need to be cut back occasionally to keep them from getting too leggy. I suggest cutting them back by half at this time and after their first bloom of summer you could trim back by one third. They are in 1 gallon pots.
Remember to plant them in groups of 3 at least!
Hopefully, Soquel Nursery will continue to donate perennials once or twice a month.
Consider if you are coming from afar to bring back plants for other schools in your region. Let me know if you need contact information for schools in your area.
Please only take plants adjacent to our SGN sign. Do NOT remove plants from tables or plants set aside from the SGN area!!!
