You wouldn't believe what we came across this week! We got our hands on four varieties of Plumeria. (I'll post when those start to bud up!) This tropical plant makes some amazing fragrant blooms and the smells can transport you to far away lands! Come on by and check these out they won't last long as I've been looking for them for a long, long time! -Chris
With the arrival of all this heat, comes our first official day of summer!!! Stay cool out there!
Morning everyone! Hope everyone has been able to enjoy their Father's Day so far!!!
Just a little remind we will be closing early today so we can spend time with our dads....
Hours today: 10 - 2
Happy Mother's Day to all those important moms in our lives! For those of you looking for a last gift or wanted to walk off their Mother's Day brunch, we will be open today from 10 to 2.
Did you the know the first earth day was officially created in 1970, to raise awareness public awareness about the planet's environment and pollution. This was a response from seeing the devastating damage from an oil spill in Santa Barbara the year prior.
The flowering cherry in this photo is a slightly older photo and the plant is no longer in bloom but thought it was fitting for today since I never had a chance to write about it!
It's been a while and haven't had a Cali picture. Found her napping amongst the reblooming Azaleas!!!
Happy Earth Day everyone!!!
Morning everyone! Did a little walk about in the nursery and found a few goodies in bloom this Sunday morning. Just a little reminder we will be closing early today at 3:00 PM!
Well 2 days into what is offically Spring, the weather has started to clear up, plants continue to set flowers and the bees have started to get back to work after their winter break!
Busy little bee hard at work on a flowering cherry!
This New Zealand native makes beautiful arching, flower clusters that cascade during the spring and despite its delicate looking fern shaped leaves, this plant will tolerate being in full sun on the coast, but if you are further inland, it will prefer half day sun.
One of my favorite plants that signals the arrival of spring, this anemones are a fantastic way to add a burst of color to your shady parts of the garden!!!
Sorry for the lack of updates, as you know the rainy season has passed and spring has arrived! For those who have yet to make a visit to the nursery, here is a peak on what's looking amazing out here!!!
These Helleborus offer a pretty foliage and flower color for the shade!!!
This South African native does beautifully in full sun, terrible dirt and high wind! Plus it's a real knockout as well!!!
This unique anemone style camellia is a beautiful creamy pale yellow fading to a pink!
41 years ago today, George, the founder of Golden Nursery, opened the doors for the first time! We wanted to thank everyone for their love and support over the years and for making everyday a fun and exciting experience for us!

<3 you all!!!

Feels like spring came, just in time with the arrival of the lunar new year!
Tangerines and oranges are beloved during this time of year, because tangerines in Chinese sounds similar to "luck" and oranges sounds similar to "wealth".
A little side note, we announced on our fan page that we will have our annual citrus tasting event! Come by and try out of varieties of citrus you might have never tried before! Also the link will show you how you can join a raffle where you can win a citrus tree!!!
Happy New Year and hope the year of the Rooster brings you luck in our drawing!!!
Hope everyone is staying warm and dry on this rainy Wednesday! Thought I'd just give you a little plant eye candy without having to get rained on!!!
Air plants are extremely easy to grow and can be extremely happy anywhere inside your home or office!
In a couple of months this plant will make a fruit that is used in Japanese cuisine, it's a childhood favorite of mine, the sour plum also known as Umeboshi.
This cool gadget called the plant amp, can hold your cell phone and because of the shape of the glass, it amplifies the music that is playing on your phone! No batteries required and looks awesome!!
Happy gardening everyone!
Hey everyone we just wanted to let you know we will open today from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm in observance of Martin Luther King Jr Day.

While many things at the nursery this wet weather... our power grid did not. So unfortunately if you try to call us, purchase any plants or like to shop in places with light, we can't do any of that for today.... needless to say we will be closing the shop, hopefully pg&e can get it resolved soon!
First of all, we have reopened and things at the nursery are back to normal after yesterday's heavy storm!
Secondly, we also wanted to let everyone know our bareroot roses and fruit trees have arrived! For those who didn't know, bareroot plants are a inexpensive way for you to make additions to your garden!
Because they do not have much of a root system, they are extremely easy to transport and plant, and with a little instruction, that we are happy to provide, you have some fantastic blooms and/or fruit in your garden for years to come!!!
Just wanted to give everyone a heads up, due to stormy weather conditions w have decided to remain closed for today.
Hope everyone stays dry and safe today!
This Evergreen shrub can easily get more then 8 feet tall and blooms almost year round! While originally hailing from South America, this plant flourishes here in the Bay Area! When it's not storming come by and check out some that we have growing around the nursery!!
Good morning everyone! What a welcoming sound to wake up to in 2017!!!
I found a break in the rain and took a few pictures of some winter blooming plants that enjoyed this morning drizzle!!!
We hope you have a fantastic and safe start to the new year! Hope to see you soon!!!
We are pumped that the new year is coming! Just a reminder we will be closed tommorow, on New Year's Eve and on Sunday, New Year's Day, we will be back to work on Monday!
We just want to thank everyone for their love and support through the past year and we look forward to serving you for years to come!
Have a happy and safe New Years!
Just figured with how chilly it's been, the plants don't seem to mind the cold and have been showcasing quite a bit of color!
I made a little poem, to showcase what's new at the nursery! (Apologies in advance to any poet's out there...)
As you can tell I'm not a poet or a writer... I like to play with dirt.
Thanks for scrolling all the way down here!
