  • Make sure to book a docent tour because you will learn so much about Burbank's botanical experiments and the successes we have become accustomed to seeing in many gardens around the world. 
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our docent guided tour through the Burbank garden and home. We learned about how Burbank created many plants by pollinating them himself. He was an amazing man! 
  • Interesting area to visit about Luther Burbank and his work. Friendly staff, nice garden in the heart of Santa Rosa
