#things to do in Carlsbad #Carlsbad #gardening
In my not-so-little town of Carlsbad, nestled between all the destruction from too many years of overbuilding, you can still find beauty if you look for it.
If you live anywhere near San Diego, you really need to drive up the coast and experience this most unique and beautiful garden shop.
PlantPlay Nursery at 4915 El Camino Real in Carlsbad is tucked away in a corner near Kelly Drive, south of Tamarack Avenue.
If you remember the old Country Store with the chicken on top of the building, you know exactly where it is.
Walking into PlantPlay is like entering into a secret garden — winding pathways, thousands of unusual plants, garden decor, the sweet melodious harmonies of strategically placed water features — birds chirping, and chickens (yes, chickens!)
It’s also chock full of drought tolerant plants and exotic specimens.
Owners Mike and Sergio know EVERYTHING about plants and planting.
This is Mike.
Old wagon on the hill. There’s not much left of the charm of old Carlsbad, so this is an especially poignant reminder.When you visit Sergio and Mike at PlantPlay Nursery, tell them Princess Rosebud says hello!
