Succulent Gardens = AWESOME


We took off work early Friday and headed south for Big Sur. We were pretty darn excited to finally visit Succulent Gardens, and it was as cool as we expected it to be.

Thousands of succulents. This place is HUGE!

There’s at least one or two more posts for this amazing place. If you ever find yourself between Santa Cruz and Monterey make sure you stop by for a visit. Robin Stockwell you are a succulent GOD. (We’re typing this in Big Sur right now, headed down to the Central Coast next).


  1. Right!

    What a fabulous place, huh? Also, it doesn’t hurt that there is the best taco places right across the highway from the nursery! :) Tacos and succulents… what’s better than that?

  2. Hey! I was drooling looking at these pictures, then I got to the one with the agaves and was so wishing I was there with you…then I see you were thinking of me! Ah….thanks! It looks like a fabulous place…you guys are really getting my list going for must sees on our next Cali vacation!

  3. Wow, wish I were there! I would love one of those vertical panels and the funky frame.

  4. WOW…these pictures are amazing. Did you buy anything. Looks like a place to definitely check out when in that area.

  12. These photos are amazing, what a nursery, all I deal with all day is annuals and cold hardy perennails. What a dream it would be to live in a climate that is so hospitable to such beautiful looking succulents. WOOWWWW

  13. I make succulent gardens out of glass- I am so inspired by these pictures- I will one day venture to these places of wonder- thank you so much for sharing this beauty!
