Berkeley Hort Celebrates 90 years!
In 1922 George Budgen realized his dream to grow and supply his favorite plants to California gardeners, and ‘Berkeley Hort’ was born. During these early years the Nursery adopted the advertising slogan:
“It’s not a home until it’s planted.”
Celebrate with us as the fourth generation continues in his footsteps.
Berkeley Horticultural Nursery is the subject for two new posters by local graphic artist Helen Krayenhoff. Each is beautifully illustrated and captioned with plants that represent something special to us. Printed on 100% recycled paper, and measuring 7.25 X 34 inches they make a wonderful addition to a wall in the home of any garden enthusiast.
