Cactus Jungle Opening Nursery in Marin

Cactus Jungle comes to San Anselmo
Cactus Jungle, based in Berkeley, is branching out with a store on the former Sunnyside Nursery site in San Anselmo.

By PJ Bremier, Marin Independent Journal

In San Anselmo, it’s a new nursery for the New Year. That’s the good news for Ross Valley gardeners as Cactus Jungle is moving into the vacant former Sunnyside Nursery location in San Anselmo.

Sunnyside, which operated from 1940 to 2015, was a local favorite known for its good selection of plants, helpful staff with deep knowledge of plants and its own Marin growing grounds. Then Armstrong Garden Centers opened there, but closed this summer.

That makes Cactus Jungle, based in Berkeley, only the third nursery there in more than 75 years…

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Black Rose

Aeonium “Schwartzkopf” is a classic, selling well at the nursery every year, forever. It is beautiful, it is tall and lanky, it is a large rosette this time of year as winter moves in. Nice!

Best of the East Bay

It’s a plaque! From the East Bay Express.

It says something along the lines of We’re the Best. Yay.

Best Place for Learning How to Grow Designer Succulents

Cactus Jungle Nursery and Garden 

If your green thumb is nonexistent, but you still want to try your hand at growing beautiful plants, there is hope. In this lush nursery of both cacti and succulents, you’ll find low-maintenance plants of every color, height, and even texture — from the furry to the prickly. Glass terrariums dangle from the inside of the nursery’s shop, along with a collection of garden soaps and sparkling amethyst clusters, which can be placed outside or in one’s home. For the beginner botanist, terrarium-making classes are held monthly, where you’ll learn to craft a DIY miniature plant environment out of sand, succulents, and animal sculptures. There are numerous terrariums to choose from, including those made of both hand-blown and recycled glass. And the finished product can be easily used as a creative birthday gift for a friend or family member. Cactus Jungle also offers garden design and installation services, if you’ve been thinking about turning that shoddy front yard into something more similar to vibrant, tropical rainforest. Chances are, you can discover some type of plant suitable for your home here, whether or not you have the gardening experience to go with it. 1509 Fourth St, Berkeley, (Cassandra Vogel)
