Annual Fall Native Plant Sale

With thousands of plants from the many habitats of California, the Garden’s annual sales dwarf all other native plant events on the Central Coast.

Considering replacing your lawn or some of your water-loving planting beds? Most California natives are drought resistant. Speak with our knowledgable staff about what plants are best for your garden or come to some of our weekend workshops. You can also visit our Natives in Your Garden page for an abundance of information that will help you prepare and care for your plant sale purchases.

Remember to take advantage of your Garden Membership and get 10% off on all Garden Nursery and Garden Shop purchases as well as discounts on classes and workshops!
