Open Days for 2012 have ended, but private tours can still be scheduled.
Please note: Due to the delicate nature of the garden, and the many rare plants, the garden is accessible by guided tour only. Although you may schedule a private tour anytime during the year, the garden is also open on special dates which we call "Open Weekends". On these days, no reservation is needed and no deposit is requested. Garden tours start at 1:00 and 3:00 P.M. and are $10.00 per person (or free with your Peckerwood Garden Membership). These tours provide an insight to the concept of Peckerwood Garden, as well as horticultural information. Purchase tickets at the gate.
When you visit, please plan to visit the Peckerwood Garden Plant Sale. We have an expanding collection of hard-to-find plants, many of which you will see growing in the garden. Visiting the Plant Sale area is free. Plant Sale hours are 12:00 P.M. until 5:00 P.M on each Open Weekend.
