Descanso Gardens – La Canada Flintridge, April 6 – 8

Descanso Gardens

Explore all the great offerings of one of SoCal’s most unique public gardens and go home with some amazing tomato plants for your summer garden!

You’ll have 3 DAYS this year to come join us and explore all the great offerings of one of SoCal’s most unique public gardens.  We’ll make sure you go home with some amazing tomato plants that will thrill you this summer. (We’ll have the most custom and rare list ever for this event!)

Famous for its camellia garden, spring bulbs shows, its recent holiday light show and other unique sights and features, this weekend tomatoes are the topic du jour!  We’ll showcase over 170 varieties of the coolest tomatoes around, plus offer everything else you’ll need for the perfect season.   An added bonus:  The Patina Group will offer lunch and a Bloody Mary Bar both Saturday and Sunday.

Look for a wider variety of peppers this year, (Yes, we’re becoming PepperManiacs!) as well as other garden veggies to keep your tomatoes company.

Come for the tomatoes- stay for the classes!  We’ll do a series of tomato “Flash Classes” all through our weekend. 15 minutes max, loads of great information!
