Flower Show and Plant Sale

Event Details



FREE Admission   

Aargh!  Listen up, Matey!  You won’t want to miss this year’s 80th Flower Show being put on by the Scallywags of the Sarasota Garden Club.

Enjoy the fun flower show both inside and out as you view the creative and beautiful floral designs, the lush and diverse horticulture and the stunning photography.  In the library is a Youth Section exhibiting the skills of Girl Scouts in floral design, horticulture and botanical arts & crafts.

While you enjoy the flower show, be sure to stroll through the acre-plus of botanical gardens, a real Pirates Treasure you won’t want to miss! There you’ll find a Certified Wildlife Habitat, a Butterfly Garden, and 14 Specialized Gardens which create a peaceful green space in the center of Sarasota’s Downtown Cultural Center.

Avast ye!  You ain’t done yet!  Don’t miss the Annual Plant Sale & Gardenfest in conjunction with the Flower Show this year!  This is great for any Hornswaggler since a huge variety of plants and flowers propagated by club members are priced typically lower than retail!
