“Great Plants and Helpful Sevice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

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.

“great nursery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

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 lot nurseries that are still in the area that give more personalized service.

“Lots of planted pots of petunias, color”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

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.

“Flowers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

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.

“Quality plants and knowledgeable staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Visited this nursery in Leucadia area, and enjoyed strolling through their beautiful displays of begonias and fuchsias. Wonderful hanging baskets, great herb and vegetable plant selection. The staff are available to help you select what will survive and thrive in your yard. The flower baskets we purchased, survived our 80 mile drive home and look beautiful on our patio. Check their website for coupons for an even better deal. We have loved visiting nurseries for over 40 years but they are getting scarce. This is so much better than the big warehouse stores. The variety of plants is amazing. Worth a visit if in the area.
