No doubt you have forgotten the pomegranate trees in flower,
Oh so red, and such a lot of them.

--D.H. Lawrence

Summer is just around the corner, with the exuberant growth of pomegranates well underway. Soon those plump flower buds will open for summer sun, to the delight of hummingbirds and gardeners. Our Sweet pomegranate, below, covers itself in nectar bearing flowers in early summer. It follows up with marvelous crowned fruit, one of the sweetest pomegranates you can grow.

Our next scheduled ground plant ship date for East Coast locations is Monday June 14, 2021 due to the Memorial Day holiday. In addition, FedEx has been lax in prompt deliveries on Saturdays to the East Coast. Please use residential addresses for East Coast shipping to avoid extended transit times.

If temperatures in transit or at destination are projected to be above 80 degrees F, your plant order may be placed on hold to avoid damage. If you want plants shipped during hot weather, we can give you an expedited shipping cost. 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. You can also check weather forecasts for points between Northern California and your location to see if the weather will be appropriate to ship safely.

We are sorry to report that we no longer grow citrus due to the Asian Citrus Psyllid quarantine.

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

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.
