Fifth Annual Aloe Day Event at Bancroft Garden

Ruth Bancroft Garden’s Aloe Day Tours are on Saturday, February 11, 10am-3pm. It’s an all-day event focused specifically on the garden’s dramatic aloe collection. You and your sweetie will enjoy a guided tour of the garden led by curator Brian Kemble, world-renowned aloe expert. The garden has an unparalleled collection of aloes, including hybrids not found anywhere else in the world. These winter bloomers put on a stunning show, with colorful, dramatic flower stalks. Enjoy hot beverages or a mimosa and plate of sweet treats in our covered shade house.  Take home the succulent planter on your table as a remembrance of your visit.  

Tours with Brian start at 10am and 12pm and last 60-90 minutes, followed by your sweets seating. Space is limited for this special event, so pre-registration is required. Sign-up online or members call the office to make your reservation. Event will be held rain or shine. $50/couple for members; $65/couple for non-members. Visit to sign up.
