When I see fantastic landscaping, I always think of the value it can add to your home. As a real estate agent, I’m trained to think that way. But any homeowner, whether interested in selling or not, can enhance their property with the right approach.
And where better to get a little inspiration than The Huntington Gardens in San Marino?
With 120 acres and more than a dozen gardens – including a desert garden, a Japanese garden, a rose garden and an herb garden – the grounds are impressive enough on their own to give you the itch to run home and start planting. But The Huntington isn’t stopping there. They’re offering a Fall Plant Sale, where you can get a look at the best seasonal offerings and pick up tips from experts on mulching, pruning, winter lawn care and more.
The sale is noon to 4:30 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
This year, the sale features a large selection of colorful bulbs and rhizomes. Daffodils and narcissus plants that thrive in Southern California, as well as several types of rain lilies, iris plants and a few less common items (such as cactus) will also be available. The list just goes on, so check out the Huntington website for a more complete selection of plants for sale.
If you’re in the mood for something a little more exotic, check in at the gardens the following weekend for the orchid show and sale. It will feature exotic blooms in elaborate displays, as exhibited by orchid societies and international growers. Vendors will be on hand with a variety of orchid plants and related merchandise for sale.
San Marino is lucky to have such a beautiful setting and the weather to support gorgeous landscaping year-round.
