Garden Club, Demo Garden

                 Del Tura Garden Club and the Demonstration Garden

                     Demo Garden has received the award of Merit for 2023!

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 huge donation from the Fort Myers butterfly house was made the summer of 2023.
With all the extra plants our butterfly garden area is now complete. We plan to add
another bench so that you can sit and watch the butterflies “flit and flutter” about.

A dozen orchid plants were placed in the oak trees at the entrance to the garden.
The next plant sale will be March 2nd, 2024, from 9-12pm, at the garden site (corner
of Gran Via & Escorial). We will be raising more plants from cuttings and seeds for a
greater variety to sell.

New this year; the garden club will be creating a “garden atmosphere” in the starlight
ballroom for an “Afternoon Tea”. The tea will be on November 8th from 2-4pm. It
will feature 2 cold items and 3 sweet items per person. Please see attached brochure
for more information.

Questions about the garden and garden club activities can be directed to Rosemary
Eiden, (813)220-9269, [email protected].

The Del Tura Garden Club holds a once a month business meeting on the first
Friday of the month at 10am in the Clubhouse/Jacaranda room. A once a month
program meeting is the second Monday of the month. The 3rd Wednesday is a
social outing to local gardens. We meet in the parking lot and carpool. You may
join us at any time.
