Cactus Corner

A hidden spot that’s frequented by the pros.

 

If succulents are your passion or you’re trying to find rare or unusual cacti, California Nursery Specialties is the spot. This wholesaler opens doors to the public on weekends, featuring sprawling grounds filled with pristine plants of every variety and size.

Leave yourself plenty of time to stroll the open-air aisles. Even the most seasoned gardeners are likely to spot “a first.”

Do arrive prepared; bring a list and know a bit about what you are looking for. Customer service is minimal. Also worth noting: They only take cash and checks, and despite being off the beaten path, there are no bargains here. This wholesaler sells top-quality plants to the public for about what you’d pay at a higher-end nursery.

Open Saturday and Sundays 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the winter. 19420 Saticoy Street, Reseda, 818-894-5694
