Trees, Please? We Have Yours Here

Hello everyone. We here at Rillito Nursery and Garden Center hope you had a wonderful and comforting Thanksgiving. As you know, we were off on Thursday getting ready for what we think will be a great holiday season.
The weather is still unseasonably great. And Christmas is just around the corner. That said, we just received our shipment of Eldarica pines. They’re the best we’ve had in some time – great living trees anywhere from 4-feet to 8-feet tall.
We’re proud of them and we know you will too once you take a look at them. They are gorgeous and full – just like a Christmas should be. And they can be planted right after the holidays.
If you aren’t looking for a Christmas tree, don’t forget we have a number of holiday trinkets and items for that special green thumb in your life. Wind chimes, pottery, fountains and much, much more.
Come on in and ask for ideas. We have plenty this holiday season.
And don’t forget, we are collecting non-perishable food items that we will be donating to our community. In November, anything we collect goes to the Community Food Bank. And in December, we are donating to ICS (Interfaith Community Services).
Next time you stop in or if you are in the area, please drop off a few
items. Our community matters to us, especially this holiday season.

Hit the Brakelight with a Red Yucca!

If you’re a regular visitor to Rillito Nursery & Garden Center you know we do love our color. That’s L-O-V-E color.
It perks up our winter and that’ll soon be coming soon – maybe even this weekend. But if you’re in the mood for some nice red we have plenty. And we have it in the form of a Brakelights Red Yucca.
It’s a cold-hearty plant that will bloom nicely in the spring. Now’s the time to plant it. And it’s drought tolerant but will grow nicely with added water.
It’s a compact plant that will grow to about two feet – tall and wide – and hold a long bloom and looks best when bunched in a group. Get a few! Wink, wink.
There’s really nothing difficult with this one. It’s an easy-care plant, just like you like them.
You know you want one. We have plenty so come on in and check them out. Become a regular visitor, and you , too, will love the color we have at Rillito Nursery & Garden Center.
