Garden Marketplace  & Growers Direct Sales

San Diego County has some of the richest resources for gardeners in the country. Much of its agricultural activity is devoted to specialty horticulture: very special garden plants grown by small and large local nurseries. Many of these botanical treasure houses are seldom open to the public. Additionally, there are scores of garden clubs and specialized plant societies with extremely knowledgeable members who can answer all kinds of home-gardeners’ questions. These are the people in our county with their hands literally in the soil, and they welcome chatting with you and love to share tips. A browse through the marketplace is like driving all over the county to find the very best plants.
