The prices for most garden edibles are $1.99 apiece and six-packs are from $2.99 to $3.50. Certain Herbs are $2.99 apiece and these are the perennials that will stay in your garden for years to come.

Anything we don’t have or are out of stock can be grown for you if humanly possible…all you need to do is ask.

Island carries a wide selection of easy to grow, low water-tolerant plants varieties. We can special order most every plant available and pride ourselves on the low price we offer the home-gardener. Whether it be something we can find in the county wholesale or somewhere in the U.S., we are happy to try and get it to you.

We don’t intend to compete with the big stores on sale priced six packs of chemically grown vegetable starts. We carry many species you won’t find in big stores. We also carry the knowledge and enthusiasm that is hard to find in the other venues, and we explain the most natural and organic methods ways of caring for your gardens, edible or otherwise.

Among the independents nurseries in Santa Barbara there is a good amount of sharing and referring. Island believes in helping our customers to the fullest extent possible.

We are quite simply the source for organics on the South Coast. If you want a plant or product that we don’t have or can’t get, we will happily refer you to someone in town that does.
