Big fall plant sale
October is primetime to plant perennials and winter vegetables while the soil is still warm and the sunlight is good. Annuals can be added to the garden to fill spaces where other plants have faded from their summer growth. The Valley of the Moon Garden Club is known for its big spring and fall plant sales of succulents, perennials, herbs, annuals, and other plants from members’ gardens. Prices are very reasonable.
The Fall Plant Sale will be held on Saturday, Oct. 9, from 9 a.m. to noon at Altimira Middle School (17805 Arnold Dr., Sonoma, just north of Boyes Boulevard). Enter at the south entrance to the front circle drive. COVID protocols will be observed.
Proceeds from the sale benefit a high school scholarship, Sonoma Valley school sand community gardens, and the Monarch Pollinator Garden in Sonoma. The club has 150 members. Meetings are held nine months of the year with presentations on gardening topics. Visit www.vom-garden-club.org for more information, or call 707-935-8986.
