green scene garden show today in fullerton

kittymoonbeamApril 15, 2012

If you haven't gone to this annual show, you might give it a look. It's at Associated Rd. X Yorba Linda Bl. at the Fullerton Arboretum behind CSUF. Admission is cheap and parking's free and right next to the event ( no tram- YAY! )

The wagons roll in and out loaded up with plants from specialty vendors and clubs. Prices for a wide range of heirloom veggie and herb starts are only 2.50 from the Organic club. A specialty miniature fairy garden nursery is there. I love her little miniature cottage garden displays. A rare fruit and spice tree dealer is there and also the rare fruit growers club. Tuition Growers is there with hard to find flowers. The rare geranium booth is back as well as the geranium club. The iris club is there. Rare Australian plants at another space. And too many other great vendor to list them.

This is not a show full of expensive garden art and large pergolas. The focus is on plants. Kids run on the grass and look at turtles and fish in the ponds. The Victorian House is open and you can tour it for free with historically costumed ladies and gentlemen. The gardens are blooming, the sun is shining. Everybody is talking plants!
