Love when they open the nursery to dig begonias to take home in your pots. Lots of colors and they are perennials to enjoy in your garden.

I finally stopped in because my neighbor told me about their vegetables. Wow! I got the most amazing tomato and pepper plants! Huge and great prices. There's also a play area for small kids, and you can visit the pony's!

When I was little there were animals here as well ... the gardens are really nice to walk through and you can find good deals on plants and garden supplies if you look for them ... this is from another era of Encinitas ... when the Ecke Family Nurseries were a huge business and made Encinitas into the Poinsettia Capital...

Great selection of plants. Great location. I love to go and just wander about. During certain times of the year they are known for the ability to dig your own pansies and dig your own begonias. Yep, you get to pick them and put them from dirt into the box. Family run and everyone is just great. I start here... More

We go to Weidner's every year for garden plants. their plants are much better than the big box stores. If you have questions, they are answered and helpful advice is given. Prices are fair. Couldn't be better.

This is a great nursery -- I would not say it is a destination point for visitors. If you are looking to buy plants and flowers this is one of many great places it Encinitas. While the nurseries are slowly disappearing it is nice that Weidner's Garden has stayed. With that being said, I have found that there are a... More

This nursery seems to specialize in flowers, lots of hanging containers ready to take home...some garden knick knacks. It is hard to find so check the directions before you get there as you can't return the way you come because of a freeway on ramp. Worth visiting to browse though seemed to be lacking landscape plants.

Best visited when Begonias are in bloom, and other tropical plants. That means August thru September. Area use to have a lot of other fun nurseries to visit, but sadly they have moved on to condo growth. Encinitas use to be the flower Capitol of the World. Now it is just another expensive beach community with little character.
