A new favorite – Ladera Garden and Gifts


The Belmont outpost of Portola Valley’s truly excellent Ladera Garden and Gifts opened its doors last spring. While nothing can replace Half Moon Bay Nursery in my heart,  LG&G is within walking distance from my house, and it is just fantastic. There is a huge selection of climate appropriate plants – Mediterranean climate, natives, and succulents – and everything is very well priced. There are also gorgeous, on-the-expensive-side containers and the indoor shop also carries decor, kitchen and gifts.
