See for yourself why “California Flowers are America’s Flowers!”

Come visit Carpinteria, nestled in the Central Coast between Santa Barbara and Ventura, and see our beautiful blooms! Ever wonder what lies behind the glass in a greenhouse? Now’s your chance during the 7th Annual Carpinteria Greenhouse & Nursery Tour on April 18th, 2015! There will be a colorful array of flowers to see ranging from orchids and roses to gerberas and more while touring the flower farms. Enjoy these guided tours with the growers themselves as you learn about growing CA GROWN flowers for commercial purposes. Information will include several areas such as propagation, fertilizing, pest control, harvesting, packing, etc. We recommend you wear comfortable shoes and layered clothing as many of these tours will involve walking through greenhouses or growing areas and vary in temperatures. This event is FREE and open to the public thanks to our sponsors and hosted by the Santa Barbara County Flower and Nursery Growers’ Association.
