Sonoma County Nurseries
The following is a list of Sonoma County nurseries and plant resources. If you know of anyone I should add to the web site, please call 707-887-0253 – or e-mail me at email@example.com. Gardening is good for us in so many ways…from filtering our air to providing beauty to soothe our souls. There is little more satisfying that being among lovely plants and flowers. Many of these nurseries propagate their own plants, making them already adapted to our climate. When purchasing locally produced plants, we don’t import insects and disease from other areas while supporting local businesses. It’s a win/win in all ways.
PLEASE NOTE: businesses highlighted in GREEN are advertisers who made this guide possible by supporting the Gazette. The number by their name corresponds to the number on our map. I encourage you to support them in return for providing this FREE Gardener’s Resource Guide. Thank you!
This GUIDE is also available at Sonoma County Gazette‘s web site: Sonoma County Gardener’s Resource Guide
