~ Seaside Gardens Tour - 2016 ~
Thursday morning, Oct. 27th, 15 of the Camarillo Garden Club members gathered at the church for a ride up the coast to Seaside Gardens in Carpinteria. Forty five minutes later we arrived at our destination. Formal tours are only given on Sundays. But with a handy dandy map, we set out in various size groups to tour the beautiful 3+ acre botanical wonderland. Eleven garden vignettes provide an around-the-world sampling of plants that thrive in our coastal environment. The gardens were designed by local landscape designers and include Asian, Australian, California Native, Central/South American, Grassland, Mediterranean, Native Wetland Bioswale, Perennial/Cottage, South African, Succulent, and Tropical themes.
Garden lovers go to Seaside Garden to stroll the gardens and get ideas for landscaping. There is a large area of plants for sale according to the types of plants.
We had a lovely lunch at Garden Market across the freeway on Santa Claus Lane. There was a lovely patio out back which we throughly enjoyed along with a delicious lunch.
