A coastal garden in Laguna Beach is now open for tours, Tuesday through Saturday. The free tours are given at 10 a.m. and reservations are required. Call (949) 497-0716.
More than 1,500 plant species that thrive near the beach grow on this 2 1/2-acre hillside garden in north Laguna above Boat Canyon. It is one of the few gardens open to the public that is located this close to the coast. It may provide many ideas for people who garden in this favored climate.
