Fall is the best time to plant California friendly perennials, shrubs, bulbs and wildflower seeds. Did you know that plants established in the fall and winter grow faster in the spring and require less water when summer comes? Help conserve water with the plants you select for your landscape and yard and plant water-efficient plants!

On the weekend of October 22nd and 23rd, join us for this spectacular event featuring the largest and most exciting collection of nearly 10,000 plants and more than 500 varieties of California Native and California appropriate plants around, all being available for you to purchase.

Here is the latest plant sale list.  The list will include the variety of  trees, shrubs, vines, herbaceous plants, shade plants, water plants, house and patio plants. Wildflower seeds will be listed too as well as a portion of the landscape‑size cacti and succulents.  The number of plants that we expect to have available of each type appears in brackets at the end of the plant description.  

A wide variety of plants will be available for sale.  Plants that attract hummingbirds or butterflies are available as well as drought tolerant and California Native plants, and plants that are fragrant or suitable for cut flowers or foliage.  You are sure to find the perfect plant.

At the sale, each of the plants will have a detailed information sign and color photo to help you make your selections.

U.C. Master Gardeners, expert Gardens Staff, and Volunteers will be available to answer your questions.

Several exciting classes are planned.  Typically these presentations are hosted by Master Gardeners and other horticulture experts.  We also generally host a children's activity too.  An updated schedule will be available the week prior to the sale.
