Swan Lake Nature Sanctuary site manager June Pretzer clears the leaves off gallon pots of coastal strawberries being sold at the sanctuary.

Native plants, like red flowering currants, yarrow, native grasses, meadow arnica and yarrow are also available. Pretzer says it's a perfect time to plant your garden for springtime flowers.
