At the Friends of the UC Davis Arboretum’s second and final plant sale of the fall season themed “Copy & Paste: Transferring Arboretum Style to Your Landscape,” customers were invited to utilize planting plans and ideas from the Arboretum for inspiration! Attendees received print outs with designs created by Director of Horticulture Ellen Zagory with a variety of plant suggestions perfect for any Valley-wise landscape. Download a copy of these planting plans here.
Perfect weather, a relaxed atmosphere and recommended shopping lists translated to individual customers purchasing more plants per person than the Friends of the UC Davis Arboretum has seen before! Despite the total number of customers decreasing slightly from past plant sale events, their total sales remained steady, no small feat considering the difficult economic times that most nurseries have faced nationwide over the past few years. Thanks go to UC Davis Arboretum volunteers and student groups without whom these fundraisers could not take place!
