Palm enthusiasts met for breakfast, courtesy of Botanic Wholesale Nursery, and proceeded to tour three incredible nurseries/residences. First off was Plant Creations, with owner Stan Mathews showing us his unique collection of palms, cycads and many native plants.

 

Next stop was Gary Wilkins property and Barbara Wilkins. In addition to palms, there was a Koi pond, bromeliads and bonsais. Ken Johnson, our tour guide giving us an excellent and spirited tour.

Final stop was Redlands Nursery, where more rare palms and cycads are grown. A phenomenal time for all.
