On Saturday, April 21, the Encinitas Garden Festival and Tour will take place throughout the city. This event is scheduled to start at 10am at the Marketplace, and run to 4pm and is a walking tour. Print companies probably have completed the brochure printing complete with the map of the gardens open to the public on that day for the self-guided tour.
During this walking tour, participants will visit unique neighborhoods to get an up close look at each neighborhood and its wonderful gardens. This year’s walking tour features more than 25 gardens with an array of colorful flowers, trees, and shrubs. This festival celebrates every type of garden and will focus on the ways homeowners use their green space. Each neighborhood on this tour is sure to delight participants of this event as they learn how to place gardens in unique settings using various containers and landscaping techniques.
On the tour this year, participants will discover a hidden oasis in a secluded corner of Leucadia, a private French sanctuary garden, an historic Spanish garden, which is a paradise for birds and native garden plants. There is also a free garden marketplace where participants can find all types of plants and accessories for their home gardens, plus will also offer talks on gardening with children, vineyards, native planting, and much more.
