Quotes from our community of nursery experts:
“One of the best plant selections in San Diego County. A beautiful location, knowledgeable people, a real joy of a nursery.”
“Barrels and Branches has become one of my regular stops whenever I need inspiration for a new article I am writing or for a garden I am designing. I love to see what wonderful new Mediterranean-climate plants are in the nursery, or to shop for pots – especially my favorite purple pots. I often take clients along to help them to envision the possibilities beyond pansies and impatiens. Their excitement builds as we walk through the nursery. Later, they tell me how they go back again and again for plants and advice, and how wonderful the customer service is. Congratulations, Samantha and Danica. You’ve filled an important niche and done it beautifully. You go, girls!”

“What keeps me coming back to Barrels and Branches is the abundant selection of interesting plants and accessories, all very artfully displayed. Another big draw for me is the consistently warm and attentive service.”
Judy Bradley, San Diego Horticulture Society
“Immaculately maintained nursery with a knowledgeable staff and an excellent selection of succulents and shrubs. Plant displays and arrangements are always well done. It’s always a pleasure to visit Barrels and Branches.”

"This is a piece of heaven on Earth.... plus the idea of supporting 3rd generation Encinitas growers is cool, too. Find yourself at the coolest place in town for succulents West of El Camino Real....and I'm told dreams come true there in Old Encinitas. I go for a break from work."
