Fall clearance sale Saturday at UC Davis Arboretum Teaching Nursery

Start November with amazing bargains on Arboretum All-Stars and much more as the UC Davis Arboretum Teaching Nursery hosts its fall clearance sale.

From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, find all plants at least 20 percent off. Friends of the Arboretum get a 40 percent discount. Admission is free.

Located on Garrod Drive on the UC Davis campus, the nursery started the season with more than 20,000 plants in 600-plus varieties, all recommended for Sacramento area gardeners. The nursery specializes in low-water blooming plants well adapted to Central Valley and foothill landscapes.

Early November (and current weather) is ideal for transplanting many drought-tolerant perennials, shrubs and trees. This fall start helps them get established before dry months to come next summer.
