For some folks a trip to the nursery to select plants is fun and exciting; for others, it’s pure puzzlement and confusion. Crazy Critters is a traditional small plant nursery where you will find a different selection of plants everytime you visit.
We try to keep it interesting, We try to carry the more unusual or specialist species of plants. Plants are our passion, we invite you to see for yourself the high standards that we go to in order to grow plants that are of the highest quality. With insane and crazy species to choose from.
3 TIPS for when you visit any plant nursery?
Tip #1: Shop during the week. If you really want to spend time shopping, Saturday and Sunday are not the best days. Thursday is usually a good day. Shopping before the weekend rush will help you get the best selection.
Tip #2: Take your time. Make the first pass. Wander through first and look at everything, getting a general idea of what’s available and what you want. Then you select your plants. As you’re looking around, observe where plants are placed. Plants that are in full sun throughout the day require the same environment in your home landscape. Some species are shade tolerant, but in general, need full sun or artificial light.
Tip #3: Inspect plant roots. Don’t be afraid to take a plant out of its pot. You don’t want to purchase a plant that’s totally root bound. If you do end up with a plant that has a thick mass of roots, take a knife and cut through the roots to loosen them before you plant it. Give it extra water until it gets well established.
Remember, plants are an investment in your landscape. Take your time, use all the available information, and enjoy yourself when plant shopping.
You will not be disappointed when you choose from a huge selection of thriving Succulents, Cactus and other species of foliage. Everything we carry come from local expert growers. Ensuring the plants are all well adapted to this climate, ensuring that they will thrive and flourish, successfully in your garden.
Please note that some specialist varieties are grown in small quantities so if you are making a special journey we would advise that you check availability before traveling. We look forward to welcoming you to ‘soon.
