Average Reviews



While growers with balconies-containers admire their small city gardens, occasionally a couple of container plants on the balconies of an apartment in above a crowded street simply are not calming down well enough. Gardeners with balcony containers will probably not be able to have a tranquil, big garden, but not far from every large city there are community parks and arboretums. Don’t just be fond of taking pictures of lush parks, go outside and enjoy the day in the community center! You can even get inspired by gardening in your private balcony garden canister.

If you are a resident of or a tourist in Irvine, California, the district, then maybe you should consider visiting the University of California, Irvine Arboretum.

This 12.5-acre botanical park and arboretum is a component of the University of California at Irvine, which was established at the end of the 1960s as an extension of the School of Biological Sciences as a scientific study and training institution.
The UCI Arboretum pays special attention to plants cultivated in the California Floristic Province (where the Arboretum is based) and South African plant species.
Among the arboretum’s specialized collections are Lower California, the Norman Islands, native pastures and wild flowers, sea succulent shrubs, the Mojave Desert, the Southern Sea Chaparral, Otay Mesa, an oak forest, a South African bulbous nest and an imposing collection of aloe.
