Nine beautiful gardens, one perfect afternoon. The Flamingo Park Historic Home Garden Tour returns for the first time since 2008! Join us on April 6, 2014, starting at 1 PM and explore nine exquisite gardens of various styles — formal, cottage, informal, Florida native — each encircling one of Flamingo Park's historic homes. Master gardeners, horticultural experts (including Florida native plant experts), and garden hosts will be located at each home to help you identify plants and answer your botanical questions. Visitors will enjoy light refreshments at each garden, catered cuisine at several homes, and live music - including jazz, a string trio and more. Plant sales will occur at several gardens on the tour, so you can bring some of the botanical beauty home to your own garden!
