                            MADAGASCAR JASMINE, FREE MADAGASCAR JASMINE VINES. Also called bridal bouquet and Stephanotis. This is a fast growing perennial vine which will cover a fence in a few years, climb a tree without hurting it, a 'non invasive vine.' Very important. Having passionflower which IS invasive, I have honeysuckle vines too. Delightfully invasive. This Jasmine is really not an invasive plant. It climbs a tree lightly  without choking it. Covers walls, fences. It is SAFE. HONEYSUCKLE has great flowers and fragrance also so I have a few dozen of those too. A Jasmine vine blooms with multiple, fragrant white flowers that glow in the dark. Also, free jasmine vine SEED for you. Great for doing l00 POTS one year for gifts the next year.  Light fragrance unlike night blooming jasmine bushes! Grow it on a trellis or send it up a tree. Vines don't grow thick enough to shade the tree it climbs. Called Madagascar Jasmine as it's from an island off the coast of India. Does very well in L.A. and Valley.  I have  8" tall vines I'll give you all the vines you need for 3$ each, PASSIONFLOWER VINES TOO,  just bring bagged soil to fill holes and bring  cans. You dig out the plant, have your pot ready with YOUR soil in it and we water it right then as we don't want it to go into shock. You bring YOUR SOIL to fill YOUR POTS. You can take a divot of my soil with YOUR NEW VINE but you will TAKE GOOD SOIL SUPER SOIL AND REPLACE THAT EMPTY HOLE IN MY GARDEN. Put soil in the empty hole that you left. HOLE FILLING is NECESSARY. Don't want the OLD MARE to get her HOOF STUCK IN A HOLE, break an ankle. Also, Bring plastic piece or grocery bags for your car seat/ car trunk. As we wet the plant as soon as it is uprooted and put in to your pot so it won't go into shock. OR we don't wet it and you drive home fast.

THE BLAZING HOT PINK HOLLYHOCK,  a BIENNIAL, Hottest pink ever seen.l0 feet tall. Up to 14 feet of height in the right soil. Some grow in shorter sizes, but in packs, fifteen stems to a 'bush.'. Great along fence to salute the world -- a real show piece! Makes great house bouquets. Have tons of seed for you TOTALLY FREE. Grow them against house. Each stem has dozens of flowers the size of teacups. BIENNIAL which means in temperate zones, plant in SEPTEMBER, it stays low til spring then shoots up. Then it does a second year or two. OTHER HOLLYHOCKS --the BURGUNDY WINE single. Also THE soft PINK SINGLE. Originally from China, these guard the front fence, sentinels that easily reach 14 feet can be seen from a mile away. (well, almost) Grow them with foxglove & canterbury bells for that English garden look.

ULTRAMARINE blue MORNINGLORY, ANNUAL vine, some are PURPLE, some pink.Some are a pale blue. I HAVE BABY PLANTS FOR YOU. l0" high right now April 2015.  Most are purpley or ultramarine BLUE. Climbs anything, trees, bushes, fences. Freeze kills it, you peel dessicated vine off easily. Compost it --after you remove seeds to give to pals. THIS one makes areas of garden a sheet of shocking blue. Not invasive at all as winter knocks it out, then the glories are hanging there all dried up, you just pull downwards, it showers you with seeds & reseeds itself. You may call that invasive! I say it's the lazyman's way to a gorgeous garden. In bloom right now you can see it. I slightly prune vines if on lemon tree doing so while it's climbing as it could shade the fruit ripening process.

SLUT-FLOWERS, really four o'clocks, (magenta color & fragrant, a brilliant neon color,)  which look good with that particular shade of electric blue of the morning glories nearby WHY DO I CALL THEM THIS WHEN BURPEE DOES NOT? Hey she doesn't open til sundown, very FRAGRANT all night..bloom in alleys, no fine soils required. They Ask nothing in the way of care. They will grow in the cracks of a sidewalk, or in vacant lots. They self-sow .. the seed is like a black pearl, rolls out onto the ground there on the alley so their daughters grow up in the streets just like 'em, blatent little nightbloomers. They put down a root that turns into a tuber, so like streetwalkers, they consider that they own the corner! This year and next. Hey, they don't call them slutflowers for nuttin! They dress in flashy colors. But I am fresh out of this one until AUG/SEPT when I'll have seed.

UGLI FRUIT TREE, (*live link,)(mutant citrus from the Caribbean. Though some sources say it was hybridized by man, others disagree. God obviously made it. Fruit looks JUST like a grapefruit, but hasn't that bitter quality. It's less sugar than oranges. Variety I have is NOT UGLY..Looks like.a PERFECT GRAPEFRUIT, no mottling on skin at all! Open it, flesh is orange, looks like tangerine, tastes sweet, not bitter.

UGLI is also called the JAMAICAN TANGELO GREAT FLAVOR,  In vogue for sorbets.  Skin great in marmalade, juice refreshing, not sugary like orange, so great for diabetics.  Zone 8 and above.No grapefruity bitter thing going, at all. NOTE: I've just had horrific news. CITRUS SEEDS go in the ground the second they come out of the fruit! I now realize my sending of the rare citrus, UGLI MAIL will never work. I read a Calif agriculture dept booklet, sez seeds ALL CITRUS SEED is only good a few hrs, and cannot dry out. I HAVE TWO UGLIS on the tree now APRIL 2016, we can take seeds out of a fresh fruit. GROWERS recommend keeping seed in water all day when it comes out of the fruit!  I NEVER KNEW THAT. I have seed for limes, lemons, oranges, grapefruit and ugli and don't distinguish or label. I sell people a few 'citrus' trees and they have to grow them in pots until they get fruit to see what they have.  To get specific UGLI seeds, we pull fruit from the tree. UGLI is real rare, unusual and I DO want to share it. Come HERE and we open a fruit, share the eating, tasting how unique it is...then pull fresh, wet seeds which you go home and plant.  While seed is damp. The seed will give you a lot of valuable, rare trees.I COULD MAIL it in wet towel but you'd have to pay for stamps. NO FREEZE for any CITRUS TREE.

Calendula, shaggy yellow flower, 3" across, with healing juices in the flower petals. Seal & HEAL any wound. A PCKG OF SEED IS TOTALLY FREE FOR YOU SUMMER of 2017. Great stuff. Petals smushed laid on a cut or wound will grow skin immediately, prevent scarring; Mush the petals into neosporin if you have a big cut. Any WOUND WILL both heal and CLOSE and not be infected.

 PLANTAGO MAJORA a magical herb for removing keratin growths from skin. REMOVES those skin growths that are brownish, like a small potato chip? Yep, they disappear from skin if plantago is squished a few times a day for two weeks, and covered with aloe vera sap. Plantago kills viruses so it works on warts too. I have aloe veras too. SEE USE over at the BEAUTY INDEX

JUSTICIA CARNEA  (<===CLICK HERE) This is a gorgeous bush, tropical, shrimp flowers on steroids. 1 cutting per visitor. This flowers in MAY in California. Again in autumn.

JADE PLANT - Makes a great bed bush, companion to spider plants. See the one on right, in pot here at this site:

TROPICALS: There are Tequila cactuses, magueys and agaves striped or verdigris. Three sizes. These cost hundreds in landscaper's nursery. HIT THIS URL TO SEE THE MAGUEY. These are huge. You'd need to hire a worker to dig one out. HARD as they have sharp points. Treasures are worth a little money of course and you fill HOLE you leave with a bag of HOME DEPOT potting soil. I no longer have a big POT to give with the maguey so bring BURLAP AND HEMP CORD to wrap it. KEEP YOUR WORKER an extra hour while he puts it in your home. These look terrific in a huge chalice shaped patio POT!.


Rousseauesque spider plants, with hanging baby plants hanging like xmas tree decorations from the mother plant. and there are dozens of mothers!
they stay low and drop down spires so plant in pots. Are bright. Have all green, too.
You can have quite a few of 'em. Free.

So you can get some big jungly looking BEDS going. I mix variagated with plain green. Have both for you as they are much more effective 'mixed.'

CACTUS cuttings. (see below) if I said plants ... well, these become plants fast enough. Need coarse sand in the soil and good humus. They grow to the height of a man need sun and heat, not too much water or they rot, so don't put them near water hungry little annuals. This cactus FLOWERS in YELLOW, is not the OPUNTIA tho it looks exactly like a NOPAL. Almost..ALL CACTUS are vicious burglar disencouragers, even destroyers. Great fence protection. No AKITA will leap your fence as jumped mine. My landlady had her men take my fence cactus out. I salvaged an ear or two. Now they're chest high. Ears have to be hardened off to be safe for cuttings.

SEEDS for everything, corn, broccoli, beets,  flowers  Lot of SIMMER STOCK, known also as MATTIOLA. A treasure. Also can gift you with books History, mysteries, great novels,  philosophy, political whistleblower stuff, thrillers. Gotta clean the shelves. Send me your house address or mailing box. Will mail to you after you send stamps. 

To get  TREES, bring soil to fill in the hole -- your own garden soil is fine. I can't have holes here. PEACHES. BABIES ARE FREE. WALNUTS CHEST HIGH TREES ARE FREE. . Bring a bag or trash can or box of it. Then, to pay for my years watering that tree, trade a bag of SUPER SOIL tho much better is POTTING MIX as I am out of starter soil for flats . OH got any flats? I Need a couple.

Come over with a shovel and your SON as you guys need to dig out the tree. A gal cannot. FILL in the hole with your homemade soil. Give me the bag of super soil or POTTING MIX which I prefer. Bring 5 gallon containers  WITH YOUR OWN SOIL IN THEM! Soil I ain't got. That's why I DO THIS THING EACH YEAR. We put your tree in your container with soil above, around and under. That ain't my soil going out the door. It's YOURS.

If you want tricky to move FIG, PEACH, WALNUT MULBERRY, POMEGRANATE, we probably gotta do this in JANUARY when they are dormant. BLACK "English" WALNUT is a fab tree, a protein tree, a great shade tree, always plant on NORTH side of your property so it does not shade your garden. I have an adult rare Persian Mulberry to top off your reg mulberry, ie. use as cuttings or to graft, come Dec, January and early FEB. Only chance of living thru shock of a GRAFT INSERTION is when dormant. In winter.

Loquat  fruit trees can be lifted out when small. I have a few small ones. Remember, Bring enough potting or even garden soil to fill hole which YOU WILL DIG, don't leave me big empty holes. My stallion will break his ankle when he runs around here. (Only kidding). Then give me a bag of potting soil for myself, as a trade for all these plants trees bushes and seeds.

My habit is to plant every citrus seed as I juice the fruits. If you want citrus trees, orange,lime, lemon, ugli or the NON-BITTER grapefruit that tastes like a tangarine. CITRUS SEED CANNOT GO THRU MAIL, MUST BE WET! I may have a few YOUNG TREES I'd part with IF you do dappled sunlight, daily waterings, big enough pot so that it won't dry out! Good enough humus soil.Their roots expand fast. UGLI is super rare. Worth having! Jamaican TANGELO is what it is.

So bring your l-gallon cans half-filled with YOUR SOIL so we can place your new, FRESHLY DUG tree or  plant in there and not have it go into shock. We will then water it. You should have a box in your car lined with a plastic trash bag  so plants don't drip in car on ride home. Bring your garden soil to fill holes you leave. But SUPER SOIL bag, 2 sq feet is for me, for the 'trade.' PREFER POTTING MIX if you could.
