“Nice to visit as it is like a little park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

Fun to visit and see all the plants. Very peaceful and quiet. There really isn't much more to see here other than the plants and be able to be in peace.

“free small arboretum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

If you've ever picked up Sunset Magazine, you will enjoy visiting their garden. It is a small loop, easy walk to see the various trees and shrubs of different zones in California. The trees are gorgeous! You can also visit the test gardens they photograph for the magazine. Staff was minimal when I was there. I would have done some shopping had they had a gift shop or book shop. No merchandise for sale there however.

“Beautiful Gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

My cousin took me on an unguided & unreserved tour of the gardens surrounding this beautiful facility, the model for western suburban living and gardening. The walk is divided by regions and plants are mostly well-marked. The kitchens were not available for tour that day; I believe this part must be arranged in advance. Worth a look.

“Just go here to see and learn!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2013

You know the magazine so go see what they write about in person. The displays are not only beautiful but a learning experience also. Ask the staff the questions you have been saving up about gardening.
