The Garden Shed in Cambria – A Little Gem Near Hearst Castle

On the way to Hearst Castle in San Simeon we stopped for gas at the Chevron on Main Street in Cambria. After parking we noticed a street filled with flowers, coffee shops that had gardens and antique stores that had exotic plants. Drawn in by the greenery we decided to park the car and walk around after getting gas.

Around the corner, next to Lily’s Coffee in Cambria we walked in the Garden Shed. A quaint and large garden store with supplies, floral arrangements and exotic plants. The owner, Ashley was very gracious in giving us a tour, as were the associates. Including Joanne, who was very knowledgable and helpful with the Garden Shed’s inventory.

I was generously given a replica California Poppy (which is for sale) by Ashley. I also inquired about the array of beautiful flowers and arrangements in the store. The Garden Shed is a highly recommended stop on the way to Hearst Castle, as is Cambria itself.
