Best Time to Visit? Solaris Farms will be open by appointment and for open house events. Appointments will allow visitors better service during periods in which open houses are not happening, as there will be fewer people in the garden. Summer Open Houses allow customers to tour and shop for plants without scheduling a visit. Check the Solaris Farms website for Open House dates or to schedule an appointment to visit.
