Yamagami's Enchanted Forest

Get a jump on Christmas preparations by pre-ordering your cut Christmas tree before Sunday, November 15th and receive a 10% discount! You can opt to choose your own tree or to let us choose your perfect tree when they arrive. If you purchased a tree from us last year, we have the records and can simply repeat the order.

Our Christmas tree lot officially opens on Friday, November 20. Choose your tree early and we will keep it here outdoors, protected, and in water until you are ready for it. When you want to take it home, we will pit a fresh cut on the trunk and net your tree. Delivery service 7 days a week is available, or we will load your tree in or on your vehicle.

Yamagami's offers the finest Noble Firs. They are grown in the high mountains of Washington and are heavy with moisture. When kept in water, they will last all season long. Here is where you will find your perfect tree!

We also offer tree stands, tree disposal bags and cut tree preservative. If you purchase or have purchased your tree stand here, we will put it on your tree every year. Order your perfect tree here for a very Merry Christmas.


Grow Your Own Spuds!

Plant seed potatoes now for spring and summer harvests. We offer a wide selection of organically grown potatoes in different colors and shapes, all kinds of goodness, for all kinds of dishes.

Potatoes are unique in their growth habit. They do not have to be buried deeply (little digging), but instead get covered with mulch or soil as they grow.

See our Potato Growing Guide for complete instructions. The flavor and texture of homegrown is far superior to store-bought.

We also offer Gardman Potato Tubs  for container farmers. They are easy to use and convenient to harvest. They are a great gift for the condo dweller who loves spuds. See a video on using Gardman Tubs here:

As long as you store them in a cool, dark, dry place (think root cellar), seed potatoes will keep if you are not ready to plant. Quantities are limited, so come in soon!

Revive Your Lawn!

Drought stressed lawns have taken a beating, but the first rains of the season have started the revival process.

Before the really heavy rains start, spray your lawn with EZWet to enable rainwater to sink in instead of running off. The deeper water can penetrate, the deeper the lawn's roots will grow. Apply Fall and Winter Feed (arriving soon) to nurture new growth and stimulate root growth, even in the winter chill.
