The employees are great here. They invited us to take as many photos as we wanted while walking through their various garden areas. They have a Grassland area, a Wetlands area, succulents, California native plants, Asian, Australian and South African areas. Paths intertwine and it is a lovely space. They have very unusual varieties here. They have a gift shop with lovely items, plus a large plant stock area that you can browse. They have a wonderful selection of pottery and even a table where you can pot your own succulent selection. We spent about ninety minutes walking through the various displays. There are restrooms in the gift shop if you have need of them.

Fabulous selection of plants to purchase. 4 acres of plantings to walk through and enjoy, as well as see what mature plants in place will look like. This is not just a nursery, it is a botanical garden. Loads of birds, butterflies and bees enjoying the many blossoms. Prices are a bit high, but more than worth it for the experience. Highly recommended!

We stopped by Seaside Gardens after a Saturday visit to Carpinteria. We arrived less than an hour before closing time, so we did the quick tour. We liked it so much, we returned for two more hours the next morning!

Great place to just walk around and explore. Large variety of plants in well-designed display gardens. Almost everything on display is available for sale. They also have lots of garden tools and accessories for sale.

We talked to several of the employees there. Everyone was so friendly, knowledgeable and friendly. Even if you don’t look like you’re going to buy anything, everyone seems willing to spend time with you.

Well worth a return visit!

This is my go-to place for healthy, interesting AND drought tolerant plants. The people who work there (shout out to Jose, Alex, Josephina, and Chris!) are truly knowledgable, super patient and just great. They offer a discount to Lotusland members, too! It's a beautiful place just to walk the gardens which they have planted in a world-regional-plant-specific way. You will LOVE this place.

Go for a walk through their small botanic garden, which is organized by regions of the world. Very well done, quite peaceful. Then in their nursery, they usually sell what you are seeing in the garden.

It's not often that a commercial venture rates being called an attraction on Trip Advisor. This is more than a nursery. It's more of an adventure into a secret garden. Good prices too.

We stopped by to identify a succulent we had found. The woman (English) who worked there was extremely nice and took the time to answer our questions even when they even seemed dumb to us.
They had a very large selection of planters that were priced right compared to our local big box garden shops.
The real attraction IMO was their 'world' gardens that you can walk through to get landscaping ideas...think free botanical gardens. The people who put it together were obviously professionals. The one thing that my wife and I really liked was seeing lotus flowers in blossom. They looked almost artificial they were so perfect.
We were here in early July.

This is a really nice garden, divided into Australian, Succulent, Native Plants, and more areas. The Lotus flowers alone were worth the stop. Technically this is a nursery with a focus on plants sales, but there's no pressure or sales pitch. We were greeted and left alone to wander through the planted gardens with our cameras. The gardens had several places along the way to just sit back and enjoy the view, including a fountain, grape trellis, and pond. If you enjoy seeing unusual plants add this to your list of things to do in the area. Best of all, it's free!

We never would've know about this place if we hadn't search the area hard for things to do while visiting nearby Santa Barbara. It does look like it's all nursery when you come up on it from Via Real..but, walk inside to the Botanical Garden area and it's postcard perfect...how creative and beautiful each area is..all geographically done..Australian, Mediterranean, African, South American, Succulents. The best part is when we found out that these plants are sold there and are all easily adapted to our California type weather..! We found some plants that aren't offered in our So. Calif area and bought them to take home for our garden. The help there is knowledgable and very friendly. With enough 'passing the word', this place will soon be overcrowded.
