Featured Garden

Most months, the San Diego Horticultural Society features a garden for a private tour by society members.

This is an opportunity to visit a beautiful garden, take a self-paced garden tour, and socialize with other society members.

 

If you have or know of a garden that would be a suitable Monthly Featured Garden please email Jim Bishop.

 

Due to space constraints, only a limited number of members will be able to attend. 

Advance reservations are required.

    This year’s Garden Tour takes garden lovers to one of the oldest and most tropical areas of San Diego County: Point Loma. 

    Purchase Tickets

    Volunteers get free entry to the gardens.

    Our self-guided tour of nine beautiful gardens showcases all that San Diego horticulture has to offer. Some of the lush gardens we visit include beautiful, mature palm trees and tropical plants, appropriate to the coastal setting. We will take an up-close look at home gardens in several of the neighborhoods on the peninsula, starting with an artistic garden in Loma Portal and concluding with unique gardens in La Playa. Along the way, you’ll visit one of San Diego’s best palm gardens, a garden created decades ago by Sinjen (our 1998 Horticulturist of the Year honoree), some top designer gardens, plant collector gardens, a fabulous potter’s garden, and several homes that were designed with the gardens in mind. 

    Selected vendors will offer garden-related for purchase, and will be stationed at various stops on the garden tour.

    This garden has wonderful specimens of cactus and succulents, palms and cycads, Australian natives and conifers - all displayed with Wanda and Gary's color and aritistic style. In addition, there is a greenhouse for specialty plants from Africa, and tropical collections in the shaded areas around the greenhouse.  The garden is flat and easily accessible, with many winding paths between the various areas.  There are numerous sitting areas to relax and enjoy the views.  Even if you’ve been here before, it’s a guarantee there will be things you haven’t seen before!
