Spring Plant Fairs Offer Big Discounts on Low-Water-Use Plants
The San Diego County Water Authority and nine of its member agencies have teamed with The Home Depot this spring to offer significant savings on water-efficient plants at San Diego County Garden Friendly Plant Fairs through April.
Specially marked containers of low-water-use plants such as lavender, bougainvillea, geranium and rosemary will be discounted during plant fairs at select The Home Depot stores. Industry experts will be at the events to provide information about water-efficient irrigation supplies, and how to select and grow low-water-use plants. The Home Depot certified nursery consultants will host how-to workshops, and local retail water agency staff will be on-hand with water conservation information.
Water Authority member agencies participating in plant fairs are the Carlsbad Municipal Water District, the City of Oceanside, the Olivenhain Municipal Water District, the Otay Water District, the City of San Diego, the San Dieguito Water District, the Sweetwater Authority and the Vallecitos Water District.
The plant fair partnership is designed to increase adoption of WaterSmart landscapes that are appropriate for San Diego County’s semi-arid climate. Click here for a list of spring plant fairs. In addition to the plant fairs, the Water Authority offers many other water-saving resources, including incentive programs and a series of free classes around the region to help turn conventional yards into WaterSmart landscaping showcases.
