The Gardens Library

Check it out!

The Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens Library was established in 1990. Since 2004, it has been managed in cooperation with the UC Community Extension Master Gardener Program. The original mission of the library was to collect material related to the major plant collections grown in the Garden and in similar climates. In time, emphasis expanded to include books and journals with information on:

  • botany
  • horticulture
  • gardens and gardening
  • landscaping
  • flower arrangement
  • ethnobotany
  • insects
  • plant pests and diseases
  • plant lore
  • nature crafts

Because the Gardens features special plant collections of rhododendrons, heathers and succulents, an effort has been made to collect material on these plants. Gardens Members, staff and Master Gardeners may obtain the library key from the Gardens Store and use materials on site or check out books, DVDs periodicals, pamphlets and videos for three weeks. 

Visitors and the general public are welcome to access the collection in-house by appointment. You can also ask a Master Gardener your garden questions through the phone hotline, 707-964-4352 ext 27, or email hotline, mastergardener@gardenbythesea.org.


Library Hours:  If you have a Master Gardening question and would like to visit the Library, please stop by the Gardens Store and ask for the key or, come by during the Library's open hours to get help from a Master Gardener. The Library has a wide range of garden-related books, journals, and Internet sources to aid you in finding the answers to the toughest queries.

You can also ask a Master Gardener your garden questions through the phone hotline, 707-964-4352 ext 27, or email hotline, mastergardener@gardenbythesea.org.
