Mission Hills Nursery draws from a long tradition of horticulture, as it was founded in 1910 by renowned green thumb and urban-green-space advocate Kate Sessions. Year after year, rows of roses, shrubs, and vegetables have sprung up under the staff's doting hands and dangled morsels of plant food. A section for gardening accessories equips yard workers with trowels, thorn strippers, and organic fertilizers to motivate crops without scourging them with caustic chemicals. In addition to tending to its plants, Mission Hills Nursery's staff arranges landscapes with garden-design services and teaches clients to arrange their own through gardening classes.
Backyard X-Scapes stocks a wide array of outdoor accouterments to help pretty up patios and accessorize barren backyards. The six-piece bamboo outdoor-furniture set enshrines sitters in nature's most beautiful and panda-friendly plant. Enjoy an afternoon of reclined revelry upon the sturdy frames of two chairs and a sofa while simultaneously resting yard-work-weary limbs. The included coffee table and two end tables/ottomans can be used as a depository for summertime snacks and drinks or as a makeshift soapbox during backyard mayoral debates.
Green Acres Nursery maintains more than 600 varieties of plants and trees on more than 15 acres, most of which are tailored to southwestern landscapes. White, ornamental star jasmine bushes ($9.78 for 5 gal.) will withstand drought while inviting visiting noses to whiff their ambrosial scents, while vibrant, purple bougainvillea ($4.20 for 1 gal.) will florally fill gaps in any fence to keep opossums from trespassing. Since the ordinary backyard aquascape has deflated Mylar balloons for lily pads and aged pitas for skipping stones, make your pond superb by adding naturally luscious philodendrons ($49.40 for 15 gal.). Green Acres Nursery cultivates each greenling on-site in its nursery, caring for them from the time they're a tiny bud to their first day of kindergarten.

With a verdant variety of shrubs, trees, roses, and vines, the friendly plantologists will help you wade through the veritable ocean of foliage. Beginning green-thumbers can take advantage of a jumbo planting kit, including ample plant food, vitamin B1, and planting compost—everything a person needs to lure an unsuspecting plant into captivity ($15.97 for the regular kit; $29.97 for the jumbo kit). Advanced yard-enhancements abound in the form of trees and shrubs, such as a selection of 5-gallon citrus trees, good for accenting a living space and forming a focal point for the worship of the Lemon Pledge gods ($34.99). Armstrong can also help organic gardeners reach full-flavored nirvana with a bevy of 3-inch plant varieties ($2.99; selections vary by season and location).
Sharpened ice skates trace paths around La Jolla Ice Town's icy interiors, offering a wintry change of pace from the temperate San Diego climate. Open seven days a week for open skate, the sports center spruces up laps around the rink with a live DJ paired with disco lights every Friday and Saturday night.
Professional coaches also tutor skaters on elegant stops, turns, and crossovers during figure-skating classes and teach athletes to maneuver pucks during youth and adult hockey clinics. Additionally, family-friendly activities, such as birthday parties, broomball, hockey games, and an annual ice show, attract visitors and inspire them to transform a jacuzzi tub into a personal-size skating rink.
