Beautiful and well maintained garden on the campus of College of the Redwoods. Reasonable admission fee. Plants available for sale in the greenhouse.

This is quite a large garden and I was a little unprepared for some areas of the garden which had loads of mosquitos. Wished I'd had some repellant. Lots of interesting plants and I bought several nice plants. Labeling was pretty good. There's a really...More
