Event Details

Want to add easy care color and interest your garden? Bulbs are spectacular! Learn how to select and grow them for garden blooms that keep coming back year after year.

The first 75 minutes will be an exclusive demonstration and talk by Ernesto Sandoval, from the UC Davis Botanical Conservatory and Teaching Collections. He will discuss the propagation and needs of a variety of Mediterranean climate bulbs,  including a few California natives, some Mediterranean species, and the abundant South African native species which far outnumber bulbs from other regions.  Many of these species thrive on winter rain and varied summer drought, With a little care they’ll bear a beautiful assortment of flower forms and colors to make their summer absence a worthwile venture fall through late spring.

Following the talk with Ernesto, stay and shop our extensive collection of UC Davis-grown plants for sale in our one-acre Arboretum Teaching Nursery.

Friends of the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden receive a discount on their registration and 10% off their plant purchases. New members get a free plant coupon (up to a $10 value). Not a member? Join online, at the door, or call ahead. LEARN MORE

UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden

The UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden is a network of campus gardens, natural areas, and landscapes that include the historic UC Davis Arboretum, the main UC Davis campus landscapes, and the Putah Creek Riparian Reserve -- an endangered ecosystem along the southern edge of campus. Our gardens are free and open to the public 24/7/365. 

 

What makes us different

We use our landscapes to engage the public and showcase
the academic richness of UC Davis.

We invite the community to co-create in the design, creation
and care of our gardens.

We collaborate with environental agencies, faculty and scientiests locally and internally on research and teaching.

We demonstrate and share best practices in sustainable horticulture with the public.

We provide students and community members with the resources and experience necessary to tackle important environmental issues worldwide.

 

In short, our purpose is to inspire human potential to help communities
and environments thrive!
