Spring Special Event
Hosted by Friends of the Orange County Arboretum

image Don't miss Orange County's largest and finest plant sale!
The most anticipated event of the year for Orange County gardeners who annually brave our unpredictable spring weather to shop the finest selection of plants in the area. The Friends of the Arboretum annual plant sale will take place the first three Saturday's in May from 10am – 3pm, offering more than 300 species of plants suitable for a variety of soil and light conditions. Choose from hard-to-find varieties and some Orange County Arboretum introductions. All plants once established, require minimal care. Informative garden helpers will be on hand to answer any questions you might have and also give you new ideas for your garden. Most importantly, supporting the Arboretum with each purchase makes this a not-to-be-missed event. Shop early for the best selection and please be aware, many selections are limited.

The sale is held at the Arboretum Greenhouse adjacent to the Kosuga Education building. Some boxes are available, but bring your own containers and carts for easier carrying. Arboretum admission is always absolutely FREE so we hope to see you there! Click here for more information.
