Sunset Boulevard Nursery supplies plants and garden supplies to Silver Lake and Los Feliz Homeowners

If you live in Silver LakeEcho Park or Los Feliz, you may still be driving to Hollywood to Orchard Hardware Supply or Home Depot for plants and garden goodies.  Could it be that you didn't realize we have our own great little nursery right at the cusp of the Silver Lake - Los Feliz Border?  Sunset Boulevard Nursery, owned by Dennis Kuga, has been operating in Silver Lake for 46 years and is a great place to go for plants, pots, pond supplies and expert advice. Sunset Nursery in Silver Lake is a great place for all your gardening needslocation of Sunset Blvd Nursery in Silver Lake Sunset Nursery is located at 4368 Sunset Blvd., just north of Fountain.  Actually, their small parking lot is located on Fountain, just south of Sunset Blvd. Now that Circuit City is a thing of the past and nobody has taken over their old location, there's probably some spill over parking available in the lot next door- at least for the time being. My dad had a total green thumb and was the king of thriving veggies and flowers at all times of the year. I think ours was the only house on the block with veggies growing in the front yard! We still had a nice green lawn, but the planter area around the house would team with bell peppers, egg plant, onions, beats and squash.. The planting area along the driveway next to the house always alternated between sweet peas (Love the scent!!) and tomato plants climbing way past the kitchen window, laden with some of the biggest most luscious tomatoes I've ever eaten! As a child, I would join my dad on his trips to the local nursery to pick up seeds, starter plants and fertilizer.  Perhaps that's why I so enjoy wandering around the Sunset Blvd Nursery.  It definitely brings back pleasant memories and roaming the aisles of this botanical wonder fills me with the desire to follow in my father's footsteps. I may not have inherited my dad's gardening gene, but I have my tomatoes and  zuchini growing nicely this year. I hae to laugh when a friend told me she'd forgot my actual street address but was able to find the house by the edible garden in front!

When I moved to Silver Lake, I first went to the big box stores for plants. Once I discovered Sunset Blvd Nursery, I never went back.  Nothing beats staff that really know their stuff and can tell you which plants thrive In shade, what needs full sun and what you should add to the soil to keep plants happy. You may end up paying a little more, but the plants seem to be healthier and survive the move from nursery to home garden a lot better than their less expensive counterparts.
