Announcements

**Temporarily Sold Out**

We have assessed our current stock and have concluded that we do not have the volume available for this coming weekend's sale. We do still have some plants, so you're welcome to make an appointment with us to see what we have. 


Thank you for your understanding.

**Orders**

 We've sold a typical 8 weeks worth of plants in a single week. Due to this overwhelming demand we're going to have to push pause on taking orders until April 12th. Don't worry, this still gives you plenty of time to plant!

We can't make the plants grow any faster than they already are. We'll be spending our non-sale days replanting everything we can, assuming we have seed left.

We will still be doing sale days of the stock we have left right now but please realize it is currently very limited in quantity and variety.

Thank you for your business, your patience and your understanding.

**COVID-19**

 Grow a Pear Nursery is committed to the health and well being of our customers, your families, and our community. To help reduce the spread of COVID-19 we will not be taking on any new garden consultatations. If you currently have one scheduled we will hold your appointment unless you let us know otherwise. We will also not be offering any workshops in the near future. We realize that in these uncertain times that growing your own food is important to maintain self-sufficiency especially if you must self-quarantine so we will be offering some new services for those of you that want plants but do not want to be in public spaces or around other people.  

  • Shopping by appointment - Come to the nursery to shop for the plants that you want and get one-on-one advice. Email us or call to set this up.
  • Curbside Pickup - Email us a list of what plants you want. When you're order is ready to be picked up we will notify you, work out payment, and coordinate your pickup.  
  • Delivery - Email us a list of the plants you want and for a small fee ($5 for Vallejo & Benicia addresses, other addresses will be custom based on distance and/or bridge tolls) when your order is ready for delivery we will notify you, work out payment and coordinate delivery. 
  • Webinars - We are working on bringing you webinars to take the place of in-person workshops. 

We have most of the plants, seeds and soil amendments we are offering this year listed on our site. Please note that not all are available right now as they haven't reached sale size yet but will be available in the coming weeks. As they sell out we will update our website to show that. We also have a large variety of herbs and some beneficial companion plants including marigolds, cosmos, and nasturtiums that are not currently on the website so please let us know if you're looking for something in particular.   We will still be doing sale days but will be reassessing daily. For now expect that we will still be at the nursery (423 Maple Ave in Vallejo) on Saturdays from 9 am - 2pm unless we send out a notice saying otherwise.  Because we're considered agricultural with an emphasis on food cultivation we fall under "essential services" so we will be staying operational through the shelter in place order. Saturday sales are still on.Please respect 6' boundaries of other visitors and we'll be setting up our tables to better help with browsing comfortably.We do ask that you please refrain from coming if you are experiencing any symptoms consistent with COVID-19.
Please call us at 707-375-3050 or drop us an email.   

What Makes Us Different

Adaptable Plants

Local Sustainability

Adaptable Plants

 Our primary focus is finding plant varieties that were not only productive for our region but also have exceptional flavor. Each year we do tastings to determine which ones we will continue to offer and which new ones to add.

Rare Varieties

Local Sustainability

Adaptable Plants

 We offer varieties that are difficult, if not impossible, to find elsewhere commercially.

Promoting Ethical Companies

 All plants are grown right here on site without the use of chemical herbicides, fungicides or pesticides.

Promoting Ethical Companies

 We utilize seeds from companies that do not do business with agro-chemical subsidiaries - all seeds are non-GMO. 

No Growth Regulators

Promoting Ethical Companies

No Growth Regulators

 We do not use hormone growth inhibitors on our plants. Most nurseries will use these growth inhibitors to allow their plants to remain marketable for longer periods of time. This can result in disappointing results in your garden.

Neonicotinoid Free

Promoting Ethical Companies

No Growth Regulators

Our plants all come from seed that is free of neonicotinoids which have been proven to kill pollinators.
