LBCC Horticulture Department Spring Plant Sale 2012

Long Beach City College Horticulture Department is holding its 40th Annual Open House and Spring Plant Sale this April.  For many years, the Fullerton Arboretum’s  Green Scene was my all time favorite plant sale, but in recent years, I have decided this sale is even more fun.  It is kind of like a treasure hunt.  In past years, I purchased some of my favorites plants here, including red Alstromerias, Amaranth, Clivia, Gaillardia, Statice, Strawberry Guava and Asclepias.   The prices are reasonable, much better than home improvement stores.  There are usually thousands of common and unusual plants, propagated by the students, staff, and club members.  Most years, the choices include dozens of tomatoes and peppers, herbs, succulents, drought tolerant shrubs, house plants, bedding flowers, roses, and more.  What is available really depends on what the members wanted to try propagating each year.  At the event, students and staff are usually happy to answer questions.  A word of advice, bring your own wagon or garden cart and try to go one of the first days of the sale.  When there is only a flat or two of something new or unusual, they often sell out in the first hour of the first day.
