Fall Plant Sale at UCSC Arboretum & Botanic Garden


Run, don't walk, to the Arboretum's ever-popular Fall Plant Sale! Gardeners in the know, know this is the best time of the year for planting. You will find hundreds of varieties of plants that are well-suited to the central California Coast. Featured plants are from California, Australia, and South Africa.
