My wife and I went there to get some information about what plants to purchase for around our home. A staff member took the time to show and explain to us what we needed to plant and what to stay away from. Excellent experience

We went for their garden club sale. Wonderful plants raised by members. Very reasonable prices. Neat vendors also. The club has a great clubhouse. My wife as a Garden Club activist in Port Charlotte FL was jealous!
