NorCal plant sales on Saturday, April 14

If you live in Northern California, this coming Saturday, April 14, is shaping up to a blockbuster plant sale day. Not one, not two, not three but four plant sales sure to excite any gardener. It’ll be hard to decide which one(s) to go to!

Where will I go? I’ll start at 9 am at Ruth Bancroft Garden, then hop over to Annie’s Annuals. I would love to go to Far Out Flora’s moving sale, but I’m not brave enough to face driving through San Francisco on a Saturday morning—although I’m mighty tempted and reserve the right to change my mind on short notice!
