1. Late summer/early fall is the most beautiful month of the year in Mendocino! And there’s no better place to enjoy it than the Gardens. The summer flowers are in full bloom, the days are warmer than ever with little wind, and the light is just right.

2. It’s time to buy plants for your fall garden. Maybe you missed the Fall Plant sale last weekend, but it’s not too late to select the perfect fall plants from their extensive nursery to add to your own garden. Tip: they offer many drought tolerant and native species.
