Del Tura Garden Club and the Demonstration Garden 95% of the Demonstration Garden was completed on December 2020 (corner of Gran Via & Escorial). It was officially opened on April of 2021. A sign was installed near the entrance to the garden.
The garden features 75% native plants and 25% exotics. The natives held up well to hurricane Ian. Plan a visit to the garden to see which plants do well in Florida. A ‘sensory garden’ will be added this season. Three raised planters will include herbs for smell and taste. The planters will be constructed near the entrance to the garden.
A fern grotto was planted November of 2022. It is at the entrance to the garden on both sides of the sidewalk.
The next plant sale will be March 20th, 2023, from 9-2pm, at the garden site (corner of Gran Via & Escorial). The plant sale will coincide with the “garden stroll”. Five residential gardens will be open to view.
