The Winters Friends of the Library annual fruit tree sale begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, March 1 — regardless of weather — and continues in the parking lot on Railroad Avenue between Baker and Edwards streets until the last tree is sold.
Featured this year are bare-root fruit and nut trees and potted dwarf citrus trees grown by two premier nurseries from the region.
Sierra Gold Nurseries of Yuba City has donated more than 400 bare-root fruit and nut trees, which will be on sale for $10 each. The trees include several popular varieties of peach, nectarine, apricot, almond, apple and more. Four Winds Growers of Winters has donated 50 potted dwarf citrus trees — including orange, lemon and lime — to be sold for $25 each.
Master Gardeners and pruners will be on hand to explain techniques for pruning and planting the trees. In addition, Sierra Gold Nurseries and Four Winds Growers will provide informational handouts about the types of trees.
Proceeds from the sale will be used to improve the Winters Community Library’s collections and programs.
