Time to Plant Milkweed for the Monarchs
Time to Plant Milkweed for the monarch butterfly caterpillars- We grow a few different types of milkweed that’s native to the region or near. The most popular is the narrow leaf milkweed (Asclepias fascicularis) and it’s on sale this week. The 1-gallon narrow leaf milkweed is on sale at 20% off for $6.40 and the 4 inch pots are on sale at 20% too at $4 each.
There are other items that are also on sale that will help bright wild things to your garden too. Take a look: http://www.matilijanursery.com/promotions-and-special-offers/
Here they are waiting for their new homes. While we’re potting these up as fast as we can we only have a few hundred right now ready for your garden so as the saying goes “as supplies last”.
Above are the 1-gallon narrow leaf milkweed pots waiting to go home to your garden.

Now is a great time to plant them so they’ll be really big in fall when the monarch come to lay their eggs!
