Mission Hills Garden Club’s Annual ‘Garden Walk,’ May 12

| April 3, 2012 | 1 Comment

Beautiful garden and patio settings will be enjoyed by guests of Garden Walk.

The Mission Hills Garden Club, a non-profit organization that promotes good gardening practices and beautifying San Diego’s neighborhoods, invites horticulturalists-at-heart to the 2012 Garden Walk, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, May 12 for a self-guided tour of a dozen gardens in one of the city’s most beautiful neighborhoods. Gardens at each home were selected their unique designs by a jury panel. With a mix of historical architecture and sensational gardens, the Walk offers plenty for garden enthusiasts to admire.

The walk begins at the Mission Hills Nursery, which Kate Sessions, “Mother of Balboa Park,” created. A trolley from the nursery is available to ferry Garden Walk goers to the starting point as well as pick up and return goers to the nursery for a wine reception. If Garden Walk goers wish to avoid the crowd, however, they can take the trolley to the end of the line and walk the route backwards.

The Mission Hills Garden Club is a group of neighbors and friends with an interest in gardening and community aesthetics. Besides monthly meetings, they hold events throughout the year, such as Coffee in the Garden, Wine in the Garden, field trips and workshops. The Mission Hills Garden Club welcomes all garden enthusiasts to participate in meetings and events.

Tickets for the event are $25 in advance and $30 the day of, and can be bought at Mission Hills Nursery or Walter Andersons Nursery. For information about the Garden Walk or the Mission Hills Garden club, visit www.missionhillsgardenclub.org or call (619) 923-3624.
