Our Favorite Plant Nurseries in San Diego: South County Edition 

At PlanterSam, we are always inspired by the incredible plant community. Whether it’s the customers at our own nursery in San Marcos, the wholesale nurseries where we get our plants, or other plant nurseries in San Diego, we continue to be impressed by how supportive everyone is.

We try our best to answer every question that comes our way, but every once in a while, we reach out to others in the industry for help. So, to give back, we want to showcase our favorite local plant and succulent nurseries in San Diego county. 

As more and more plants are being sold at stores like Target, please think of the independent retailers and farms that depend on your business. When you visit a plant store like ours, you have personalized support, someone to answer your questions, and help picking out the perfect plant.

Next up — South County! If you missed our first blog post, read about our favorite plant nurseries in San Diego (North County). We highlighted a few of our favorites like Gardens by the Sea, Jessi’s Foliage and Plants, Cordova Gardens, and IvyMay!
