PHS Open Garden

Aloes, Wine, & Cheese

A Garden Event in Support of Pacific Horticulture

Join us for an afternoon of winter bloom and good cheer in the home and garden of Pacific Horticulture board member Scott Borden and San Diego Horticultural Society president Jim Bishop.

Perched on a hillside overlooking Mission Valley with an expansive view from the mountains to the sea, Scott and Jim have created a Mediterranean villa garden brimming with plants from all over the world. Their collection of plants from Australia and South Africa are at their best in January—especially the aloes. Immerse yourself in seasonal blooms with a guided tour of the densely planted slope as you stroll up and down the garden’s hand-built pathways. Then gather in the garden casita to nibble on winter treats while enjoying a glass of wine—perhaps from South Africa in honor of the aloes—and warm up next to the fire as you relax to the pleasing accompaniment of the three nearby fountains.

Space is limited for this exclusive event. Register early to avoid being left out in the cold.
