Bazaars for the light and the barbarous gold.
We open the halves of a miracle, and a clotting of acids brims into the starry divisions.
Creation's original juices, irreducible, changeless, alive.
So the freshness lives on in a lemon, in the sweet-smelling house of the rind,
The proportions arcane and acerb.

Pablo Neruda

Summer. Yes. Birds at dawn, bees at midday, fireflies at night. Time to pick juicy lemons, take a tumble in tall grass, bask in soft sun. Consider the lemon, a summer fruit if ever there was one. Our Eureka lemon trees, below, are blooming and fruiting.

Our next scheduled ground plant ship date for East Coast locations is Monday June 1, 2015, due to the holiday. We will ship to West Coast, Mountain and Midwest locations on Tuesday May 26, 2015. Ship dates are determined by travel time so plants do not spend weekends in transit.

If temperatures en route or at destination are projected to be below 32 F or above 80 F, your plant order may be placed on hold to avoid damage. We ship non-plant items every day. Please email us if you have questions about delivery times. We will contact you if weather precludes safe shipping of tender plants.

Many of our plants are not suitable for year-round growing outdoors in Zones 3-8. Please check your USDA Zone prior to placing an order so you can make the appropriate selection.

We are pleased to now offer the Szechuan pepper tree. Customer reports indicate they have a tendency toward self-fertility, unlike the Japanese pepper tree. The combination of toasted Szechuan peppercorns and chile peppers provides the marvelous sensation of ma-la in stir-fried dishes.

Yerba Mate plants are another new offering that will excite even the most jaded gardener. This selection from the rainforests of South America is great fun to grow and use in the kitchen.

Michael Michaud's botanical tableware continues to dazzle. Fruits, leaves and bark are transformed into heirloom-quality plates, miniature boxes and serving pieces. His New York foundry is one of the few remaining that continue the ancient art of lost wax casting from natural objects. A new piece, the apple box, is now available and warrants close inspection.
