Online ordering with Curbside Pick-Up at the Arboretum Teaching Nursery


Our community support group - the Friends of the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden - holds plant sale fundraisers offering an incredible selection of attractive, low-water, easy-care plants perfect for our region. Traditionally, these sales are held several times a year as large-scale festival events at the Arboretum Teaching Nursery.

For the safety of customers and staff, our plant sales are switching to an online format for fall. We'll announce the launch date of our new online Teaching Nursery store by late September. Shoppers will visit the online store to place a plant order then schedule a time to pick-up their plants curbside at the Arboretum Teaching Nursery.

Watch for the latest information here and in our digital newsletter. In appreciation for their loyal support, fall plant sales will be members-only. Not a member? Anyone can join here to participate in the fall sales.

Most of these plants are grown on site, including the Arboretum All-Stars — our top recommended plants for Central Valley gardens. Our nursery staff, in addition to dozens of students and volunteers, propagate and grow the majority of plants we sell. By shopping these sales, you support the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden's environmental leadership programs, the growth of our gardens and collections and the wide variety of free, educational events we offer the public.
