Look for these and hundreds of other great plants at great prices at the annual Master Gardener Plant Sale Saturday, June 18, in Room 101 of Casa del Prado in Balboa Park. Sale hours are 10 a.m. until 3p.m.
Gardeners with a taste for edibles will want to add one of our 3-gallon banana trees to their landscape. Several varieties of strawberries also will be for sale. History lovers won’t want to miss cork oak trees from the Balboa Park nursery founded by famed horticulturist Kate Sessions. And native plant fans will snap up 4-inch pots of Iva hayesianna ground cover.
Want to enlarge your succulent collection? Hundreds will be for sale. And if you want to know how to grow them, ask one of the many Master Gardeners on hand who will happily answer questions.
The same is true for other plants on sale - vegetable and herb plants, bromeliads, water lilies, rare sages, staghorn ferns, sago palms, waterwise perennials and flowering annuals, to name a few grown by Master Gardeners or donated by local specialty nurseries and growers.
