Thank You! Lin, that is a great list. Perhaps you should also post it in the "All Things Garden" forum, vacationers from out of state may welcome the ideas. I always search for gardens when I travel.

Lin, Great list of the great public gardens around the state.
I will have to post some photos taken @ Sunken Gardens in a thread soon.

Alice, I too search for gardens to visit when planning a vacation and I'd love to see every State Forum with a list of Arboretums and Botanical Gardens in their area!

You can copy and past the Florida list over on the All Things Gardening Forum if you want but unless it's made into a *sticky* or put into the info box on the right side of a page, it gets lost in the thread. Those interested in vacationing in Florida can always access the list on the main page of the Florida Gardening Forum.

Scot, I look forward to you photos from Sunken Gardens! I hope you will start a thread soon with photos of your visit! I went to Sunken Gardens back around 1970 when my husband and I lived in St. Pete briefly before he got drafted. I remember it being a fabulous place then and I bet it's gotten even better over the years.

Lin, You are right, I forgot about threads getting lost. I am a member of the American Horticultural Society and get free admission to many fine gardens around the country. A membership card for my husband is included so he gets in free also although he usually gets halfway through and by then his back hurts so goes back to sit in the car. Shrug!

Susan, that looks like a wonderful Botanical Gardens and if I'm ever over that way, it's certainly a place I plan to visit! Looks like they have some nice botanicals and I really love the sculptures; the Fleur fountain is so cool! I bet the sounds of that Rondelet are amazing on a breezy day and I know the Tree Trellises are going to be even more beautiful once the Bougainvillea are growing over, around and through them!!

Thanks for sharing the link and letting us know about another wonderful Botanical Gardens in our state!

@gardenersdetective Susan, I was just looking at the list and realized I'd forgotten to add Peace River Gardens when you posted about it back in November! It's in the list now. Smiling

The Peace River Gardens is already worth the price of admission. It will be exciting to see it expand & grow over the years.
