Hidden Gem. Lots of beautiful plants and a great selection of arrangements, planters, etc. The family knows their stuff. The owner has retired but she's still around and is fascinating to talk to.

We went for lunch in Encinitas while we were on Vacation and wanted to just have a relaxing day. It was Super Bowl Sunday so a lot of things were closed, but we found this gem of a flower shop. The kids loved it and the atmosphere was fun. Prices are great also!

Love when they open the nursery to dig begonias to take home in your pots. Lots of colors and they are perennials to enjoy in your garden.

I finally stopped in because my neighbor told me about their vegetables. Wow! I got the most amazing tomato and pepper plants! Huge and great prices. There's also a play area for small kids, and you can visit the pony's!

When I was little there were animals here as well ... the gardens are really nice to walk through and you can find good deals on plants and garden supplies if you look for them ... this is from another era of Encinitas ... when the Ecke Family Nurseries were a huge business and made Encinitas into the Poinsettia Capital...

Great selection of plants. Great location. I love to go and just wander about. During certain times of the year they are known for the ability to dig your own pansies and dig your own begonias. Yep, you get to pick them and put them from dirt into the box. Family run and everyone is just great. I start here... More

We go to Weidner's every year for garden plants. their plants are much better than the big box stores. If you have questions, they are answered and helpful advice is given. Prices are fair. Couldn't be better.

This is a great nursery -- I would not say it is a destination point for visitors. If you are looking to buy plants and flowers this is one of many great places it Encinitas. While the nurseries are slowly disappearing it is nice that Weidner's Garden has stayed. With that being said, I have found that there are a... More
