My friend Chris (Chris In Murrieta) and I had been planning an all day palm extravaganza on march 31 for the last month or so. We were bummed when we found out the PSSC meeting was the same day, but we stuck to our original plan and got to stop by some great nurseries and gardens in the North County of San Diego. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Our first stop was at Multiflora Nursery here in Fallbrook for their annual spring sale. Unfortunately I did not get any pictures there, but Chris took a few so he will post those to this thread shortly.

Our second stop was JD Andersen, also in Fallbrook. JD Andersen has great palms for sale and an extensive garden which covers many acres out in the hills of Fallbrook / De Luz.

Dan is not 100% sure on the ID of this palm but believes it to be in the Dypsis Madagascariensis complex

IMG_3724.JPG
Parajubaea Toralyii, the base of this thing is huge. It's hard to capture it in a picture.

IMG_3725.JPG
Here's another picture with Dan that shows how wide this base is!

After JD Andersen, we headed out to Rancho Soledad Nursery in Rancho Santa Fe. When you pull up to the parking lot you realize you are at a very nice nursery when one of the first things you see is a Foxy Lady in a 24" box for sale!

IMG_3749.JPG

In the outdoor palm growing area there are rows upon rows of very nicely grown palms, from Dypsis to Chambeyronia to Coccothrinax, Burrietokentia and many more!

Then you approach The Palmetum!

You slide open the giant door and are instantly transported to the tropics!

After Rancho Soledad we visited the garden of Mark Riedler in Encinitas, CA. Mark was very gracious to spend quite a bit of time with us and show us all of the amazing plants he has around his home. His use of succulents, cycads and palms is very eye pleasing.

Looking back the other way down the driveway, showing the entrance from the street. I loved the rock walls throughout the property and Mark mentioned they were all local from a building site.

The final stop of the day would be none other than BS Man's place! I had been there about a year and a half before this and was excited to see how everything was coming along. When we first pulled up Bill was WEEDING around his Dypsis Big Curley / Prestoniana, unfortunately I was not quick enough to get a picture of that! Next time!

First up....

We then finished up the PRA with Bill over dinner at Chili's. I should have taken pictures as that was a great time! Thanks to Bill for letting us stop by and spending the evening with us.


Like I mentioned in the first post, Chris should have a few pics from Multiflora to add in here soon. I'm very thankful to live in such a great climate for many palms!

Nick - I didn't look through the sun lot much on this last trip, but I remember seeing a couple Purpuraea down in the sun lot fairly recently. Rancho Soledad is a great place to go just to view large palms. Although that's how I started and I did end up buying some stuff too. It's nice to get landcape ready sized plants everyone once in awhile!

Jason, thanks for all the great photos. It's been a few years since I visited JD Andersen nursery and everything there looks great. That Parajubaea is really getting fat!

I enjoyed your photos of the places that I missed on my last trip to San Diego. Glad to hear that Bill was doing a little weeding. I almost got lost in his yard! :D

There's been a LOT of San Diego PRA's lately!

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Chris - thanks for posting your pictures. That Dypsis Ambositrae was a stunner!

freakypalmguy - A lot of the rare oddball palms are no longer at Multiflora, but he still has some really nice stuff available and almost everything could be considered overgrown for it's pot. He's definitely one of my favorite growers. I think it's the combination of his very light soil and constant waterings in his greenhouse. His water bill must not be very nice, but his plants are!

Jason and Chris, wow, what a grand tour! Thanks for all the photos of Mark Riedler's wonderful garden, I'd like to see that in person one day. Your photos from JD Andersen and Rancho Soledad bring back memories -- I clearly remember my first visits to each, because they both made such an impression on me. And walking into that Palmetum at RSN -- wow! Like you said, instantly transported to the tropics!

BS Man -- Congratulations on that awesome prestoniana, that's going to be the grand entrance to an amazing garden just a year or two down the road.
