Upcoming Organic Edible Gardening Ebook
Thanks for the preview of your upcoming ORGANIC GARDENING ebook, Jennifer! You are a horticulturist Extraordinaire. You have excellently explained a tremendous amount of detail required for successful organic gardening. Your ebook will equally benefit both a novice and an experienced gardener. To all that purchase your ebook, "Happy gardening with Jennifer!"
Neighbors love my garden! Here is a sample of what I hear regularly:(They are approximations from memory and all volunteered; I never ask for their opinion.)
"If I could, I would vote yours Garden of the Year! Seriously, you have it all going on!"(said in January, 2019)
"I love all of your plants!"(said after two nights of freezing weather in early January)
"You've done a great job! Seriously, it's all beautiful!"(said after two nights of freezing weather in early January)
"I love your yard!"(waiving while driving by after two nights of freezing weather)
"This woman kept her plants alive this summer!" (Bragging to her family as they went for a walk)
"One of our neighbors on October 31 loved your garden and said she wants to come talk with you about your plants."
"I always look at your garden when I drive by, and I've been hoping to catch you while you are outside. I have a plant to give you!"
"I can honestly say that none of them even come close to the caliber of work that Jennifer does."
"Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him."
I Cor. 2:9
Indoors is Best for Most Plants, But Shade Outdoors May Also Work for Some
Keeping the plants indoors (near a window or other bright location, or under artificial light
about 12 hours a day for succulents or 8 hours for tropicals) is ideal partly because I don't know how all of them can handle Arizona heat or sun. The thick-skinned ones like gasterias and some agaves can oftentimes handle high heat better than most others.
Many feet away from an unscreened window is the only safe option for some succulents. Some tropicals like Chinese evergreen cannot be right next to an unscreened window even in the springtime; they are low light plants and can burn from the intensity of Arizona sun.
If you decide to attempt outdoors during the hot months (after they've matured), bright but full shade is the safest bet.
Young plants need more frequent but lighter watering. I water roughly weekly in the cooler months and in an indoor growing
environment. Open windows (which equals lower humidity) and warmer weather can shorten the cycle for some plants.
I transitioned to the use of organic gardening methods in place of the synthetic pesticide below.
Flowers, Pesticide, and Bees
I use organic fertilizers and have used a slow-releasing synthetic systemic pesticide that is said to last a year. (This is the same kind of pesticide that some major growers use, but they sell their plants without a warning that it kills bees, and if you care about our food supply, you will want to protect bees by not exposing bees to the pollen of such plants.)
Please also keep plants out of reach of pets and children. (One customer looked it up and said it won't kill dogs, just make them a little sick if they eat too much of it.)
Because of the synthetic pesticide, if you buy my plants, you will need to 1) replace the soil which should shorten (to about a month, I would guess) the no-flowers-in-the-presence-of-bees time period as the plant will not continue absorbing the pesticide in my soil, 2) bring them indoors just before and while the plants bloom, 3) cut the flower buds off if there is a chance that a bee could later come in contact with the pollen 4) grow my plants indoors for about the next six months (for a a few varieties/planters, a year).
Organic Edible Gardening Ebook Coming!

My Website Was Designed for Computer Viewing
I have mostly corrected the layout of my website for viewing from a phone or other mobile device, but to see the changes, you may need to refresh the page. For easiest navigation, please visit from a computer.
Sales Tax Included
Sales tax is included where applicable.
Service Charge for Small Orders
Because of the time commitment per customer, there is an $8 service charge for orders under $20.
Please Check Inventory Before Purchasing Plants
I make potted gardens and individually potted plants, plus I have plants in growing trays--listed under the Shop Alphabetized Plants header--that can be potted up by request.
Because I grow a small volume of each variety, please check inventory by e-mail before placing an order. The shopping cart is impossible to keep up with as plants change.
Please send me a copy by e-mail of the shopping cart contents instead of using the cart for payment. Once inventory is confirmed, I can invoice you for electronic payment.
To see all offerings, please click 'Load More' on each page (using right-click to open in a new window will save you time) in the drop-down menu under the alphabetized pages. Add to the cart and then copy and paste cart contents into an e-mail.
Alternatively, you can copy and paste a list of URLs (website addresses) to the items that interest you. From your list, I will tell you the options I have available at the time of your inquiry, and then I can invoice you once inventory is confirmed.
Pick-Up by Appointment or
My focus is now on providing potted gardens (almost all are succulent arrangements) and individual pre-potted plants for pick-up (by appointment) in my zipcode of 85023 (near I-17 and Greenway), nearby but not at my home because of zoning laws.
Meeting in the middle sometimes makes most sense. If the order size (perhaps for a group) is big enough, delivery might be possible.
Some of the areas considered for delivery follow: Phoenix, Scottsdale, Peoria, Glendale, Anthem, Sun City, Tempe, Paradise Valley, Carefree, Cave Creek, and Fountain Hills.
Please e-mail me to arrange a time and keep in mind that I have another business that I must work around.
within Arizona may be possible in cool weather for some plants.
I grow indoors in trays and pot up (usually as potted gardens) a small number at a time. I can also pot up by request (individually or as arrangements), but I kindly ask you to not make a special request unless you are certain you will pick up your plants or have them delivered (if my schedule allows) within two days from the time they were made and approved by e-mail. I have very limited space and lighting for potted gardens and special orders, and it takes about an hour of work per bowl-sized arrangement. I also have another business to work around; so, such orders may take some time (about a week) to fulfill.
Colors may not be exact. Even with photo editing software, they can be difficult to perfect. Additionally, I tend toward blue light in my nursery while homes may be lit with yellow light. And monitors don't always render perfectly.
Potted Plants are Presently Also on Letgo
Sometimes my potted gardens and other potted plants get listed on Letgo before they are added to my website. https://us.letgo.com/en/u/jennifer-everett_494833aa-6a77-4032-a249-c86d89c6e9f0
Please look for plants that match the environment you want to give them and ask questions if you are unsure. I am more than happy to help and preferably from the very start before you even bring the plant home! Everyone has a different knowledge base and ability to "read" what the plant needs (when to fertilize, water, adjust light levels, prune, etc.). Even with the large amount of information online, even growers are known to kill a number of plants before understanding a certain plant's needs. I offer plants that I have figured out for my growing conditions, but your conditions will probably be a bit different from mine (differing amounts of light, humidity, etc.) which will affect how often to water, etc.
