Plants and Books on Sale at the Arboretum

Aug. 29, 2012

The Fullerton Arboretum will tickle visitors both literacy and botanical with two weekend events.

Gardening book lovers can browse to their heart’s content during the used book sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, in the pavilion. Proceeds will benefit the addition of new research books for the facilities library.

Then from the pages of many of the books on sale, visitors can check out the more than 130 different varieties of salvias, also know as sages and members of the mint family, that are available for sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, and Sunday, Sept. 9. Sales items were propagated and grown on site.

If salvias aren’t the plants you need, the Potting Shed is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays throughout the month of September with a wide variety of plants for any garden.

For more information on this and upcoming events, call 657-278-3407 or go to the Arboretum website.
