Kanapaha Botanical Gardens this is a HUGE garden and will be done in may parts. Found in Central Florida, in the City of Gainesville.

They have one of the larges collection of bamboo in this part of the country, a collection of palms and much, much more

And Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park another love gardens, which is best during the winter and spring, there most of the Camellias are trees!!!,
A added feature of this garden is there are 2 great nurseries just south of it where you can find many of the plants for sale that you see in the gardens.
And no they do not ship.

thanks, Will probable be going down to Gainesville, next week and I return down there at lest once a month to go to the dental collage. This garden will keep up in tours all winter,
Will be going to Mckay a little later in the year when the Camellias start to bloom, just hope we do not have another freezing winter. This one will be good for a number of return visits also.
Did you look at the garden map?

I am also planing a trip to the Rose Test Garden In Ga. I have not been in years so hoping that is still a good one to tour.

Then there is always Callaway Gardens, Love that place. maybe if I get in shape I can do a spring bike tour of the place.
