Water-wise plant sale set at Gibson House

By From page A14 | September 15, 2013

The Gibson Gardeners invite the public to a plant sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22, at the Yolo County Historical Museum, 512 Gibson Road in Woodland.

The sale will feature drought-tolerant plants for home gardens and fall is the best time for planting, suggests Joann Larkey, one of the volunteer Gibson Gardeners.

Succulents in all sizes, shapes and colors top the list of available plants. In addition, seed packets, native plants, ornamental and culinary herbs, bulbs, iris, scented geraniums and a selection of trees and shrubs will be offered for sale.

UC Master Gardeners will be on site to answer gardening questions and give advice on saving water.

Visitors to this free event also may learn how to make a wreath out of grapevines or an instant bird feeder out of locally grown millet.

Plants propagated by the Gibson Gardeners are for sale on Tuesday workdays, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. or whenever the museum is open. The donation of recycled rigid pots or plant materials would be welcomed as well.

For further information, call 530-666-1045, email [email protected] or visit www.gibsonhouse.org.
