Join Wednesday’s tour of gardens in two RB neighborhoods

By Elizabeth Marie Himchak

Various garden options will be showcased during the Seven Oaks Garden Club’s annual garden tour.

Six gardens — five in Seven Oaks and one in Bernardo Heights — will be featured on the self-guided tour that begins at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 1. Participants are to meet near the rose garden at the north side of the Seven Oaks Community Center’s parking lot, 16789 Bernardo Oaks Drive in Rancho Bernardo.

Tour chairwoman Cammy Wesson-Cohen said those of all ages are welcome on the tour. The tour is free to Seven Oaks Garden Club members and $5 for non-members. All are advised to wear comfortable walking shoes.

Wesson-Cohen said participants will be given a map of the gardens and will be free to visit them in any order they choose until noon. Some gardens will have someone present to answer questions and others will not.

“It’s a very informal tour,” she said.

One of the gardens has several varieties of roses, while another consists of native plants and a water feature. There is one that focuses on succulents and one showing how to create an outdoor living space in the front and back yard, she said.

“There is a shady garden that is a haven for birds and another garden with a view,” Wesson-Cohen said.

Proceeds from the tour will go toward the club’s speakers plus the demonstration gardens members are creating at the Seven Oaks Community Center. The gardens are designed to show residents what thrives in the area and are easy to grow.

For tour questions, call Wesson-Cohen at 858-449-2457.
