the garden shops

Our Garden Shops sell exquisite plants and unique garden-related items all designed to inspire and foster a deeper connection with nature. All proceeds from the Garden Shops’ sales go directly to support the Garden’s ongoing education and conservation programs.

Tis the season… for gifts! And our Garden Shops, that sell exquisite plants and unique garden-related items, can help you find something for everyone on your holiday list!

The Gift Shop is pleased to offer cork handbags, jewelry, and fashion accessories. Yes, cork! It’s shaved
by hand from the bark of cork oak trees like those at the Garden. We’re also excited to offer handcrafted bird houses from Lily’s Birdhouse Creations. Each one is unique, built with love and imagination one seed, one pebble, one piece of bark at a time.

The Garden Shops  
Throughout the month of November,
receive one of our beautiful ‘Collectabells’ as a gift with purchases over $50 (excluding membership and plants). And don’t miss our terrific Thanksgiving Day book sale! Buy one book at full price and receive a 40% discount on a second book of equal or lesser price.

In December during Garden of Lights (Dec. 6-23 & 26-30) our Garden Shops will be open from
10 am – 7 pm. The Gift Shop will be filled with nature-inspired gifts for all of your family, friends and loved ones. And our Plant Shop will have succulent wreaths, topiaries and mixed succulent gardens. Come in
to see what’s new and what’s on special during this magical month! Remember, members, can receive
a 10-20% discount on most items.
