Great plant sale at Morningsun Herb Farm in Vacaville, CA, Oct 15-17

If you live in the Fairfield – Vacaville – Sacramento area, you should check out Morningsun Herb Farm in Vacaville this weekend, October 15-17, 2010. All their plants are on sale: $0.99 for 3-inch pots, $1.99 for 4-inch pots. They have a huge selection of perennials, including a couple dozen different lavender varieties, probably 30-40 different salvias, and many rare perennials that I’ve never seen anywhere else. They also carry a good selection of winter vegetables, ready to go in the ground as soon as it cools off a little.

Heather and I were this morning and bought two trays full of plants. I’m particularly excited about a white lavender called ‘Edelweiss’ and a salvia cultivar named ‘Byron Flint’ that’s supposed to grow to 5 ft.

The nursery is fully stocked so there’s plenty (!!!) to choose from. Their web site gives you an idea of what they carry, but they have a lot more plants that aren’t on their site.

Directions to Morningsun can be found here.

Can you tell that we love Morningsun? I’d say 75% of all the plants in our yard came from there, all in 4-inch pots. Don’t be fooled by the small size of the pot! These plants grow quickly, especially if you plant them in the fall—like NOW!
