UC Davis Arboretum Plant Sale

Last year, I went to a UC Davis Arboretum plant sale and found many plants that I wanted for my garden.  They had so many different plants that it was hard to decide what to choose for my garden.  I found some different ceanothus, some crape myrtle, a chocolate scented plant with yellow flowers and many others.  I ended up buying over 15 plants and am enjoying all of them except the chocolate scented plant which did not survive our frost last winter.

The sale has hundreds of different kinds of uncommon garden plants that have been locally grown, including the Arboretum All-Star plants, their top recommended plants for gardens in our Mediterranean-type climate.  Expert advice is also available to help you choose the right plants for your garden.

Their next plant sale is on Sunday, October 9 from 9 am to 1 pm with a focus on sustainable gardens.  There will be a plant doctor clinic so you can bring your problem plants sealed in a plastic bag for diagnosis.   The plant sales are at the UC Davis Arboretum Teaching Nursery on Garrod Drive at the University of California in Davis.  For more information, go to
