Several times each year, our support group — the Friends of the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden — holds plant sale fundraisers at the Arboretum Teaching Nursery where our members and the public are invited to shop our one-acre nursery filled with tens of thousands of attractive, low-water, easy-care plants perfect for our region.

Most of these plants 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 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.

In addition to all the plants we grow and nurture on site, at these sales you will also find a selection of indoor and carnivorous plants, exotic bulbs and more courtesy of the Davis Botanical Society, the support group for the UC Davis Center for Plant Diversity and Botanical Conservatory.
