Santa Barbara Botanic Garden’s Annual Plant Sale

It’s time to think about your spring garden. To aid in your flora decision-making, the S.B. Botanic Garden has an array of the green-leafed goodies to choose from at its annual spring sale. With more than 6,000 plants and 500 varieties, there’s something for everyone. Attract monarch butterflies with native milkweed, create a colorful palette with various vibrant flowers, or reimagine your outdoor space as a drought-tolerant landscape. To help you choose the right plant for your vision, check out one of the “Planning with the Experts” workshops on April 11, 18, and 25, 9:30 a.m.-noon. Native flora gurus will take participants through the Botanic Garden and inform them on the best soil to use and the light and watering requirements of the plants you choose for your landscape. Want to learn about natural pest control? Attend “Garden Allies: Landscape Design for Pesticide-Free Gardening,” a hands-on class to the native plants that attract the right kind of insect to your garden, on Tuesday, March 24, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The sale takes place Saturday, April 4-Sunday, May 3, daily from 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, 1212 Mission Canyon Road.
