Jewell Gardens is located on 5 acres in Skagway, Alaska on the site of the Historical Gold Rush Era Henry Clark Farm. Once hosting the US Army a soldiers, all of our soil has been remedied of the oil tanks that once sat on our grounds. With 3 planted acres showcasing annuals, perennials, natives, and vegetables, there is something for everyone to enjoy-- even history buffs.
The abundant Alaskan sunshine allows our flowers and vegetables to grow in record time and most varieties end growing past their "normal" size. Our Alaskan growing season is a bit later than you experience at home with our daffodils opening their petals and welcoming a new season in mid to late May.
Combining gardens and glass, Jewell Gardens showcases glass sculptures on the grounds and hidden handblown surprises around every corner. Our onsite glassblowing studios create the beautiful glass flowers and treasures to keep our gardens ever blooming.
Whether you are on a guided tour or exploring with our self-guided tour pamphlet, please be sure to ask our staff if you have any questions. They are excited to share their knowledge with you.
