The Comfort of Natural Rhythms [click on pic]

When the world is in flux, there is always calm in the rhythm of the natural world.

That's one of the intangibles that you send your giftees when you give them a tree.

Especially with deciduous trees, there is the tenuous arc of fall to spring -- only a leap

of faith will convince you that this seemingly lifeless tangle of sticks will leaf out again

in full glory. Then its fragrant flowers whisper of the harvest to come. Tiny fruits survive

pests, storms, and your occasional benign neglect. And then one day you walk out and pull

Blessings! [click on pic]

When their real estate agents sent Ray & Jenn a beautiful patio tree, the Garden Art Tree Tag® was inscribed "Blessings on You Both". Can you think of a better way to bless someone special? For years to come, they will enjoy flowers, fruit, shade, beauty and even oxygen! from their housewarming tree. Bless my soul!

When Words are not Enough...

It's never easy to say goodby to a loved one or to comfort the family at such a tender time. And it's even harder to be many miles away. So when Mary [in Collegeville PA] found us online, she was pleased to be able to send Sherry [in Napa CA] a pretty and lasting patio lemon tree. We have a new planter up there! If you'd like to send a tree outside of our coastal Southern California service area, just give us a call. We'll do our best to make it happen.

You can't grow cherries here! [click on pic]

It happens every spring! Folks who are positive that we can't grow certain kinds of fabulous fruit trees are astonished to learn "Oh yes we can!"

Thanks to modern day breeding [note: these are hybrids and not 'genetically modified'], there are lots of wonderful fruits that will thrive here in

our 'perfect' climate. Look for low-chill varieties of stonefruits, apples, pears and yes, cherries. Or better yet, drop a big hint that you'd love

a gorgeous gift tree from The Wishing Tree Company. Then sit back and we'll do all the work.

Young couple with patio lemon tree

Deanna and Leo just bought their first house. In celebration, their agent sent this beautiful patio lemon tree.

Chances are, there will be more homes down the road. And this pretty little tree can travel along wherever life

takes them. But as technology seems to make 24 hours feel like 12 and life speeds by at a breakneck pace, the

lemon tree will remind them to stop and sniff the flowers, take a load off and pour a cold glass of lemonade. That's

quite a present.

Small, Sweet and Juicy - the Perfect Gift Tree!

Let's say you know someone who'd really love a gorgeous tree for her birthday, anniversary or graduation. But there's not enough room or no yard or it's a condo. Well, meet PixZee!

That's our amazing miniature peach tree. It produces a gorgeous spring bloom and then dozens of full-size sweet and juicy yellow peaches mid-summer. And only needs about a 4ft by 4ft area. We can even do them in a patio pot.

Give a gift that will last as long as your love! Yum!

Cucumber Trees...Who Knew? [click on pic]

In the eastern US, especially in the southern Appalachians, these magnolias are truly the giants of the tree world. Seeing one 'unclothed' gives a true impression of its size. And just imagine watching her dress in green finery come spring. Photo by David Glass.

Lemon Tree, Very Pretty [click on pic]

Wasn't that Trini Lopez who made the song famous back in the days of folk singers and simpler times? If you remember Trini, check the obituary columns to be sure you are not mentioned - LOL! But seriously, folks... If you are here in Southern California and don't have a lemon tree, that must mean your nearby neighbors do. Because one tree usually supplies enough lemons for everybody on the block. That means every seafood dinner, every pitcher of fresh lemonade, every apple pie [the juice keeps the apples from turning brown] and every martini with a twist for the entire block.
