It may seem early to plan your September garden touring, but tickets to fall’s Pacific Horticulture symposium, Style & Whimsy in the Sustainable Garden, are already selling briskly and are likely to be gone within a couple of weeks. Organized by San Diego-based Pacific Horticulture, and co-sponsored by the L.A. County Arboretum, the APLD and the Mediterranean Garden Society, this four-day lovefest for sustainable gardens will take place right here in Pasadena, where gardening is a religion.
The four days will be filled with garden worship: Bus tours of some of our finest sustainable gardens, a focus on architecture and gardens (including a tour of the Gamble House), speakers, panels, hands-on workshops and a free tour of Arlington Garden. Among the gardens toured will be works by such designers as Mayita Dinos, Anthony Exter and Steve Gerrischer. Check out the schedule here.
