June Gardening Tips from Calloway's

Timely Tip for June Gardeners:

Enjoy Summer Color

Add instant color to your summer gardens with a trip to Calloway’s Nursery. From annuals to perennials to shrubs to trees, color is found in blooms, foliage and even in the plumes of ornamental grasses.

The distinct patterns of Caladium leaves or textured foliage of Coleus adds interest to shady gardens. The dazzling Daylily or drought-tolerant Lantana provides splashes of blooms for full sun. Crape Myrtles are sending forth sprays of blossoms and the Esperanza displays clusters of bell-shaped flowers. Color abounds even in the heat of summer!

Remember to use Calloway’s premium soils at the time of planting and water well with a Root Stimulator mixture. Also, add plenty of mulch to insure the best results from your summer color plantings!

Dear Casa Linda Neighbors:

AmReit is approaching a new chapter at Casa Linda Plaza and we would like to give you a first look at our renderings thus far for the restoration of the center. Please be aware that our vision may change somewhat between now and the time we actually begin renovations; however, we hope that you like what we are trying to accomplish. We have had very positive response from the select few targeted tenants thus far and hope that you feel the same way.

As promised back in December 2006, we have maintained the Spanish-revival style that the center has enjoyed for over 60 years and have tried bring back some of the charm, authenticity and historical aspects that were in place before the 1980's remodel. Other restoration aspects will follow shortly as well. Our online survey (and identical survey passed out at the "welcome" meeting in December) has given us some great insight. We have had almost 300 responses thus far – so thank you!

Please take a look at the designs that can be found on our website at http://www.casalindaplaza.com.

Again, thanks for all your support. We hope you like what the future will hold for the shopping center.
