Succulent Gardens

The quality, abundance and diversity of the plants in the growing grounds at the Succulent Gardens  is astonishing. These plants are on display at various events such as the SF Flower and Garden show and Sunset Magazine Open house. They have a demo garden. 2133 Elkhorn Rd. Castroville, CA. I hope that one day they will have “overnight” parties just like the Monterey Bay Aquaium does. Imagine falling asleep and being surrounded by the most beautiful succulents in all sizes and colors. Wow.
