cool Florida resource

(Maggie) Jacksonvill, FL(Zone 9a)

While adding info to the new DG nursery finder feature, I ran across this site. It has info and links to really local color events, fairs, and resources- including specialty nurseries.



South/Central, FL(Zone 9a)

That's pretty neat. Thanks

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

I'll tag onto this thread with a plug for our new feature,

Please add your feedback for the businesses you've patronized and the public gardens and parks you have visited. It helps other gardeners and the business or organization.

For smaller businesses and organizations, this type of "word of mouth" is their only form of advertising. And for businesses of any size, unsolicited testimonials are priceless - they can't buy that type of good will.

Here are the Florida listings so far:

You can narrow this down to a particular category (garden center/nursery, or public gardens, etc.) You can also plug in your ZIP and specify a radius (especially helpful if you live near the state line and want to see everything in your immediate area.)

If your favorite nursery or park/garden isn't listed yet, let us know and we'll add it, or start the entry and add what you know (we'll fill in the blanks.)

Lake City, FL(Zone 8b)

Thanks for sharing - really neat website.

(Maggie) Jacksonvill, FL(Zone 9a)

You're welcome:-)


Chicago, IL(Zone 5b)

Neat Terry...

Is there a way we could sort by city?


Lamar, AR(Zone 7b)

Yes this is one of my long-time favorites.

I had posted DG here to give some info on activites coming up for FL.

TY Terry, that's some really nice info to add to it!

I have a nursery that I frequent in Daytona Beach that is not listed. You posted above that if any nursery was not listed to let you know.

Butcher's Nursery
1425 Tomoka Farms Rd.
Daytona Beach Fl 32124

They are located in the Daytona Flea Market.

I look forward to visiting this nursery as often as I can; they carry a lot of common plants, along with some unusual ones. Their stock is A+ and their prices are very reasonable. Customer Service is excellent, as they are always willing to help, and if they don't know the answer to a question, they find someone who does.

Does anyone have any knowledge of how Black Bamboo does in Central Florida.
Ocala to be sure. I bought some this spring and am not sure if I should plant it in the ground , ( I want to) how much to water , how much it will spread, ( not wanting to upset any neighbors.
Thanks for knowledge as to how high it might grow , how far to place from a fence, anything.
Thanks Cyndi

Orlando, FL

This is a nice thread. I like Harry P Leu Gardens. Here is the website. They offer alot. I used to work across the road from the back of it. If you are going to be in Orlando, it is worth the time to go and look around.
My girls and grandkids go off and on.

Awesome site thanks.

Great site!! In addition to my love of tropical plants, I also love to watch speed boat/hydroplane races and bull riding, so if you hear of these events in Florida or a nearby state, please give a shout out! Thanks.

We have a rodeo stadium here in Davie, just south of me. I forget the name. It begins with B, and all that I can remember. Do the Google...


PS. Check out the "membership" site here. You will find a number of members in your area. I believe the DutchLady is one of them.

Good luck.

It may be one of the semi-newer butterfly bush varieties.(buddleia) I think there's one called Honeycomb and another called Golden Glow. The yellows came along later than others, and usually break in those layered chuncks instead of a full length blossom.

Zephyrhills, FL

Is this link broken, or am I doing something wrong?
