Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, the Australian Native Plants Fall Plant Yard Sale has been cancelled. Australian Native Plants is still open by appointment, however, and they have a wonderful selection of Australian and South African native plants, from ground covers to trees and everything in between. They also have a great selection of pots, furniture and gifts.

Australian Native Plants is located at 9040 North Ventura Avenue, Casitas Springs, CA 93001. (The nursery entrance is off of Nye Road.) Make an appointment via email, or by calling 805.649.3362.

The Arboretum at the University of California, Irvine is presenting its annual Winter Bulb Festival:

Saturday, March 3, 2012: 10 am to 4 pm
Sunday, March 4, 2012: 11 am to 3 pm

The South African bulb garden is in peak bloom, and the Arboretum Nursery will be having a plant sale featuring perennials, succulents and blooming bulbs.

For those BAGSC members interested in drought-tolerant subject matter for the upcoming Chapman University exhibition, this might be a perfect opportunity to acquire some interesting specimens. All those interested in going over after the quarterly BAGSC meeting at Deb’s house can go over as a group.

Admission is $2.00 and parking is free. For more information, call 949.824.5833.
