Plant lovers, get ready! It’s that time of year for the annual fall Garden Festival! We are hosting dozens of vendors on-site from all over the state of Florida selling exotic and tropical plants and trees, garden art and gift items!
We’ve also stocked our Edison Ford Garden Shoppe with unusual, native and heritage plants that thrive here in sunny,
Southwest Florida. Plus, we’ll have gift items such as ceramic flower pots and garden art.
Vendors will be selling palms, vegetables, bromeliads, hibiscus, butterfly plants, African violets, orchids, air plants, herbs, succulents, cactus and many hard-to-find species, as well as garden supplies and gift items, including mulch, trellises, pottery, cut flowers, hats and jewelry.
This event is for the entire family with numerous kids’ activities, including photo opportunities in a Model T Ford with Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. Kids will be able to plant sprouts that they can grow at home, make corn husk dolls, get temporary flower tattoos and make Mod Podge votive candle holders with dried flowers.
The festival will also feature music and live broadcasts with 95.3 OLZ and Cat Country, refreshments and a specialty Edison Ford “Model Tea” beer, crafted with tea leaves by Bury Me Brewing of Fort Myers will be available for purchase.
Parking and admission to the Garden Festival is free (tours of homes, museum and lab are not included).
