Daniel Nelson, Director of Nursery Operations for La Verne Nursery, will give us a tour of the La Verne Nursery. Daniel notes that this is a walking tour, our shoes will get wet & dirty, and that some people will find it hot & uncomfortable.
We need to pre-order any plants that we want by August 25, 2014 (before we get to the nursery). Our members can go online to see what plants are available at www.lavernenursery.com. You cannot order online. Select your plants and call or email Bruce to tell him what plants you want to order. Tentative prices: 5-gallon pots from $17 to $30 and 15-gal pots $70 to $85. All sales will be cash; buyers will be responsible for paying for and transporting their own purchases at the end of the tour.
