Spring will soon be over and the beautiful annual wildflower displays will become a memory.  We have annuals available at Native Here Nursery, but they need to go home soon.  Blooming now are the wind poppies, tidy tips, clarkias and the goldfields and more to come, including many clarkia, Chinese houses and  lupines.

See the slideshow above for photos of the available annuals.  Hover over over the slides with your mouse to see the captions.

The TV and radio segments honoring the Skyline Gardens[Restoration Project [for winning the Jefferson Award] ran on KPIX Channel 5 TV and KCBS Radio.

Here’s the link to the TV piece (it’s about 2 minutes long):  http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2018/03/08/skyline-garden-project-restores-native-plants-to-east-bay-trail/  We’ve gotten tons of great feedback.

It’s also posted on the Skyline Gardens Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SkylineGardensEBCNPS/   If you are on Facebook, please consider sharing the story on your own timeline – it’s an easy way to get the word out.
