Trip to San Diego

Hi Lisa,
you probably would find interesting the Baja and old-world Gardens at the San Diego Wild Animal Park In the Northern part of San Diego City near Escondido.  (now called something else ... not quite sure)  Rancho Soledad Nursery in Rancho Santa Fe is also a nice way to spend a morning or afternoon ... they pump classical music throughout the extensive growing grounds and usually have some interesting stuff being propagated, including a few geophytes.  If you can make the 2 hour drive North to Pasadena, definitely visit the Huntington Botanical Gardens.  UC Ivine's Arboretum has a nice collection of Sout Africans ... about 75 minues North of San Diego in the Newport Beach area.  If you go there ... make sure to stop at the Sherman Library and Gardens in Corona Del Mar.  There should be some nice native bulbs blooming in the local hillsides as well.

Evening.. My name is Lisa Weisner and I  have been a pretty inactive member on this list for the last 2 years. i garden in central Indiana about an hour south of Indy. My son is  Marine currently stationed at Camp Pendleton and we will be flying out to visit in a couple of weeks I am looking for botanical gardens in the area. Quail is my favorite but I would like to expand my horizon. I also visit Grgsby's cactus nursery and would love to find another nursery in the San Diego area. I love south Africans and just about any caudiciform so any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks, Lisa
