    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.
