Our community support group — the Friends of the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden — holds plant sale fundraisers offering an incredible selection of attractive, low-water, easy-care plants perfect for our region. Traditionally, these sales are held several times a year as large-scale, festival-style events at the Arboretum Teaching Nursery. However, for the safety of customers and staff, our plant sales have switched to an online-only format. Watch for the latest information here and in our digital newsletter

Most of these plants we offer at these sales are grown on site, including the Arboretum All-Stars — our top recommended plants for Central Valley gardens. Our nursery staff, in addition to dozens of students and volunteers, propagate and grow the majority of plants we sell.

By shopping these sales, you support the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden's environmental leadership programs, the growth of our gardens and collections and the wide variety of free, educational events we offer the public.
