We love to welcome customers to our nursery in Soquel; it's much calmer than the events we attend and we can give you our undivided attention! Depending on the time of year, you also get a bigger choice of plants than we have available at any of the events.
We're open by appointment Monday - Saturday. This isn't as formal as it sounds! We're a tiny, tiny business with just one full-time staff member; owner, Nicky Hughes! Nicky's sometimes out on deliveries or consultations, so please call ahead to make sure somebody will be at the nursery to welcome you and answer your questions.
We're conveniently located just south of Santa Cruz and a mile from Highway 1 at 3625 Main Street, Soquel CA.
From Highway 1, take the Bay and Porter exit and turn onto Porter Street. Take the first right onto Main Street (Valero gas station on the corner). Follow Main Street for about 1 mile. Gold Rush Nursery's on the left hand side, about 200 yards after Bargetto Winery. If you get to Soquel Nursery Growers or the fork in the road, you've gone about 50 yards too far.
Follow the driveway to the back of the property. Don't worry if it looks as if you're driving into someone's private residence; you are!
