Summer Garden Events

Some garden related events for the next few months...get inspired!

Despite what most people think, I don't spend all of my weekends in the garden...

Merritt Spring Plant Sale - May 5-6

Merritt College holds their annual spring plant sale this weekend.  I scoped out the selection on Wednesday and they are well stocked; herbs, citrus, strawberries, vegetables, flowering plants and much more.
All proceeds benefit the Landscape Horticulture Department at Merritt College - a most worthy cause and a fun event!

Ruth Bancroft Garden 18th Annual Sculpture in the Garden - June 15-July 14

If you like succulents and haven’t been to this garden, it is a must.  Located in Walnut Creek, the garden features low-water plants in a nicely designed, once-private garden.  Sculpture looks great with the strong forms and color of succulents and cacti...check it out!
