When we moved here 10 years ago it was the closest and most wonderful nursery around. Now, it is neglected, the help is usually one person, if you can find him/her, and the only thing worth buying is orchids. What a disappointment it has become. Maybe a victim of the economy and going out of business? Would have been better to go out with their head held high rather then being so rundown and with a poor attitude. Sad.

I want to like Passanisi's. I like supporting local businesses & I can wander through Sonoma County nurseries all day long. As an avid gardener living a few blocks away, I've made many visits and many purchases at the nursery due to the sheer convenience. I like hummingbirds & hummingbirds seem to like Passanisi's - several have taken up residence inside the main greenhouse-y building, where they sometimes startle unsuspecting shoppers with sudden, near-miss 'buzz-bys' during winter months. Sadly, the hummingbirds aren't alone in making shoppers feel less than relaxed & appreciated. The staff often seems irritated with shoppers' questions, and reply with entirely unnecessary & inappropriate condescension. Sometimes, I think staff lacks information, and rather than say so, or look for a more informed coworker, they answer flippantly. Ask for a plant they don't have in stock for example - and a sneering it's 'out of season' is the response, even though other nearby nurseries have them in stock. While inside plants appear generally well cared for, the outdoor area often appears neglected with singed, wilting, weedy or otherwise stressed looking plants for sale. I'm not sure if employees are paid too little to care, or if owners are burned out on the nursery business, or something else is causing things to be amiss there. Each time I visit, I vow it will be my last time - with so many wonderful nearby nurseries to choose from. I think I just keep hoping for a kinder, gentler, garden loving crew there. It's just so darned convenient . . .

I have been to this nursery a few times, and its been great every time. I have bought fertilizer, and some succulents from here and they have many to choose from. Nice pots to plant things in, and they have some nice tropical indoor syle plants as well. Knowledgable friendly staff await you here as well.
