Located in Castroville, the Artichoke Center of the World, Succulent Gardens is another big center.
This center was so overwhelming that it was hard to tour, knowing that a bank account could be drained effortlessly in an afternoon of touring the gardens and growing-rooms of countless succulents.
Robin Stockwell is the owner of 3 acres of growing and display space in greenhouses and outside.
Succulent plants are displayed in gardens, planters, and arrangements. The walk through the greenhouses presents wave after wave of succulent cultivars, each wave containing hundreds of beautifully cared-for identical individual succulent species.
Robin's creativity holds a special memory for me because his living succulent frames were the first I had seen back in 1990. And now, his succulent frames are still being created and available today.
The succulent inventory is huge with over 400 varieties of succulents available. SG is a wholesale and retail nursery.
