Nursery

Unique selection of plants reflective of our garden and mild maritime climate.

The Nursery is open to local members by reservation only. You may shop our plant selection during your scheduled visit — Purchases must be made with credit card only. The Store and Café remain closed.

Stay safe and healthy! Please check back for updates.


In addition to plants that are featured in the Gardens signature collections - rhododendrons, heaths, heathers, conifers, and Mediterranean plants - our specialty retail nursery offers a wide selection of plants that are drought tolerant, deer resistant, and hummingbird-, bee-, and butterfly-friendly. We carry unusual varieties from Australia, Asia, and Africa, and our selection of California native plants is excellent. We offer for purchase many of the same varieties featured throughout the Gardens. Our nursery is staffed by knowledgeable plant geeks who will be happy to help you with any questions. We also are able to special order many plants if we do not have them in stock (We are unable to providing shipping services; all special orders must be picked up). Don't miss our two HUGE annual plant sales — the Fall Plant Sale in September and the Spring Plant Sale in April!

The Nursery is open daily from 9:00am to 5:00pm in the summer (March through October), and 9:00am to 4:00pm in the winter (November through February). All Gardens Members receive a 10% discount on all purchases and all proceeds go directly to support our non-profit botanical gardens.
