The Winters Friends of the Library will hold their annual fruit tree sale at 9 a.m. Saturday, March 3, rain or shine, in the parking lot on Railroad Avenue between Baker and Edwards streets in Winters. The sale will end when the last tree is sold.
Featured this year are bare-root fruit and nut trees and potted dwarf citrus trees grown by two nurseries in the region. Sierra Gold Nurseries of Yuba City has donated 400 bare-root fruit and nut trees, which will be on sale for $10 each. 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, the nurseries will have informational handouts about the types of trees.
Proceeds from the sale of these trees will be used to improve the library collections and programs and to contribute to the Winters Community Library.
