Introduction to Florida Gardening - Part 1

New to Florida gardening? Part I of this two-part class provides a foundation of how plants work, their nomenclature, and understanding the unique weather patterns and unusual soils found only in Florida zone 10. This class will educate participants on how to identify our native plants, ornamentals and recognize invasive plants. In Part I, we will also discuss the horticulture of palms and spend the last 20 minutes in our Palmetum. Please bring a notebook, pencil and water to class. Hats, sunscreen and good walking shoes are recommended for the outdoor portion. Each class includes handouts, recommended reading list, and additional resources to help the Florida gardener succeed.

At the conclusion of class, each participant will receive a 20% discount coupon for plant purchases in our Garden Shoppe.

Advance Registration is required and limited to 25 participants.

Class will be held at the Garden Council Building located across the street from the Edison and Ford (Larchmont Avenue) parking lot.

Cost: Edison Ford members: $45; non-members $55. Register online at
