Plant Sale Garden Month

Feb

20

All through the month of March the Cummer will be celebrating its gardens with programming and events centered around them.  Kicking this off will be our Community Day on Saturday March the 2nd featuring a range of activities including a plant sale held on our front lawn.

The sale will be held from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. and will include plants from several local garden centers including:

  • Anita’s Garden Shop located in Avondale features English garden baskets, wreaths, topiaries, fresh cut flowers, orchid arrangements, as well as both indoor and outdoor garden ornamentals reminiscent of European garden shops.
  • Mandarin’s Flying Dragon Citrus Nursery specializes in citrus trees and goes as far as growing, delivering, and planting trees for their customers.
  • Philips Garden Store, located in Ortega, is a family owned business that has been serving Jacksonville residents for over 50 years with an emphasis on high quality plants and knowledgeable customer service.
  • Trad’s Garden Center is also family owned and possesses a strong sense of community involvement whether by donating vegetable gardens to schools or by providing classes and seminars to the public to educate them on all manner of gardening.

With the variety of products on offer from these gardeners and others there is sure to be something for everyone.  And with the proceeds directly benefitting the gardens here at the Cummer every dollar spent goes to a good cause.
