Nurseries & Plant Propagators Gardeners Guide 2020

Supporting locally-owned nurseries is important not just for their economic health, but also for the health of Sonoma County’s agricultural heritage. When we purchase plants that have been grown outside our area, we risk importing insects and diseases that could negatively effect our farms and agricultural businesses. Please support these nurseries and plant propagators who grow plants meant to thrive in our unique climate and fragile environment. (Please support our advertisers [in bold text] that make this guide possible - THANK YOU!)
