Plant donations from over 100 local growers, wholesalers, retail nurseries and individuals make the San Diego Botanic Garden’s (SDBG) annual Fall Plant Sale one of the most interesting and diverse plant sales in San Diego County. The 30th Annual Fall Plant Sale will kick off this year on Oct. 18 and continue through Oct. 20. The event will take place on Oct. 18 and 19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Oct. 20 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Plant selections include California natives, cacti, succulents, fruit trees, bromeliads, sub-tropicals and house plants. Many of the plants available at the sale are propagated at the SDBG by horticulturalists, docents and volunteers.

The event is one of the SDBG’s biggest fundraisers and is organized by more than 150 volunteers who transport, tag, price, groom and organize the plants. Generous plant donations from San Diego County growers, nurseries and wholesalers enable the SDBG to offer plants at exceptional prices to attendees of the event.
