Desert Botanical Garden Spring Plant Sale

It's soooo tempting to buy one of those cheerful-looking succulents you see in the Garden department at Target. Don't succumb! They're mass-produced and babied in nurseries, and they'll almost certainly croak after a week of exposure to the summer heat. While a lot of places pretend to know what they're doing relative to hocking cactus, we've only found one -- Desert Botanical Garden -- that offers arid-climate plants with such a long and healthy life expectancy. See what we mean while you're dodging little red wagons -- you'll see what we mean -- at this fecund annual sale.
