Fall CNPS Plant Sale: Planting Time is Almost Here!

The Marin chapter is pleased to offer a 5-day online plant sale this fall. We make an effort to focus on shrubs in the fall as this is the best time of year to get them in the ground. We hope there will be lots of winter rains to help them put down deep root systems to see them through our dry summers.

Order online: October 6th, 6 pm through October 10th, 6 pm
Order pickup: Saturday October 15th from 10:30 am to 1 pm, Bon Air Shopping Center, Greenbrae
