Enhance your garden at plant sale

By
April 22, 2011 |

Central Valley gardeners can enhance their gardens with spring plants from the Friends of the UC Davis Arboretum plant sale on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Arboretum Teaching Nursery. The nursery is on Garrod Drive across from the School of Veterinary Medicine . Free parking is available along Garrod Drive and in Visitor Lots 50 and 55.

The sale will feature hundreds of different kinds of plants, most of which have been grown in Davis and will thrive in Central Valley conditions, including newly introduced and unusual garden plants that are hard to find or not available in commercial nurseries.

This sale has a special focus on gardening for the senses, featuring plants for color, texture and fragrance. Many of the Arboretum All-Stars, the Arboretum’s top recommended plants for Central Valley gardens, will be for sale.

Master Gardeners and Arboretum experts will be on hand to advise on the best plants for shoppers’ garden conditions. At the Plant Doctor booth, plant pathology graduate students will diagnose plant pests and diseases; shoppers can bring samples of problem plants in a sealed plastic bag for advice.

Members of the UCD Environmental Horticulture Club will be there selling annuals and starts for summer vegetable gardens.

Anyone can join the Friends of the UCD Arboretum at the door and receive a 10 percent discount on purchases and a free plant. For more information, call (530) 752-4880 or visit http://arboretum.ucdavis.edu.
