Roger’s Gardens Halloween 2021: Cabinet of Curiosities
By theFUNnelCakeBlog | Sep 08, 2021
Every Halloween season we look forward to Roger’s Garden Halloween boutique installation. The Newport Beach area nursery and gift boutique opened this year’s shop over Labor Day Weekend. We headed out to see this year’s theme and grab some pumpkins. While the pumpkins had not yet arrived, the display was up and running. Check out last year’s visit (and pirate theme) here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmiLZXS-_2U

Connect with your inner ghoul and monster this Halloween season at Roger’s Gardens.
Roger’s Gardens has been bringing beauty to your home and garden for over 50 years and has long been one of the region's leading and award-winning home and garden companies.
The original garden center opened in 1965 by Roger McKinnon and was located off Fairview Road in Costa Mesa, California; answering the frequently asked question by customers,
“Who is Roger?”
Through friendship, Gavin Herbert Sr. eventually bought the business from McKinnon in January of 1970. Then in 1975, he moved the company to its current location in Corona del Mar, California. It was here, where the heart and soul of the company developed.
In the early years, the focus was on color bowls and the creation of Roger’s Gardens Original Designs. Unique Original Designs products, like signature hanging baskets and seasonal color containers, played a large role in the evolution of the company. Today this creativity is still alive and has expanded into a variety of highly creative and versatile container gardens, such as succulent container combinations, wall baskets, and designs using driftwood.
Throughout the years, owner Gavin Herbert Sr. developed friendships with some of Orange County’s elite, such as President Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, John Wayne, and connections with Disney. In the mid-1970s, Roger’s Gardens acquired the ‘Original Disneyland Bandstand’ (Gazebo) from Disneyland and moved it to the gardens in Corona del Mar, CA. During the holiday season, Santa would hold court inside the bandstand, listening to children share their Christmas wishes. Now the bandstand resides within the Farmhouse at Roger’s Gardens, a farm-to-table restaurant, and serves as a special place for customers and visitors to dine.
Roger’s Gardens is located at 2301 San Joaquin Hills Rd. in Corona del Mar.
