Fall Garden Tour in Central Florida Features Florida Native Plants

Orange County: The Fall Tour of Gardens, hosted by the Central Florida Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society on Sunday, Oct. 25, 2009, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., offers an excellent opportunity to learn how to enhance the natural beauty of your landscape and neighborhood with native plants. Florida’s natives can help you save water, energy, and money. They require less fertilizers and pesticides and benefit local wildlife. Over a dozen gardens are available to tour. Come be inspired. Tickets are $5, which includes a brochure with garden descriptions, highlights and locations. Tickets will be available, beginning September 2, at Green Images Native Landscape Plants (E. Orlando), Biosphere Consulting, Inc. (W. Orlando), South Seminole Farm and Nursery (Casselberry), and Blodgett Gardens (College Park). Hurry, tickets are limited. Any unsold tickets will be available the day of the tour at the Florida Friendly Landscaping Demonstration Garden at the Orange County Administration Center (downtown Orlando) and the Seminole County Environmental Studies Center (near the intersection of US 17-92 and SR 419).
