You are invited to attend our big Labor Day Sale, Monday, September 1, 2014. This is one of the Garden's 4 big annual sales open to the public. We will be offering bargain prices on many kinds of beautiful succulent plants between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. There will also be an outdoor educational program offered on the south lawn at 11:00. Local fern expert Bill Coblentz will speak on “Staghorn Ferns”. Put this special event on your calendar today!
The Sarasota Succulent Society is located on the grounds of an historic 1938 depression-era home, recently restored, which will be open for viewing. Once you see this quaint petite home, you may want to join our volunteer base. With the peaceful atmosphere, the reasonable prices of the plants, free admission and the fact that the SSS Garden is open to the public only 3 hours each week, this event is a special treat.
The many gardens of succulents are conveniently located between Myrtle, Cocoanut and 38th Sts. Volunteers will be on hand as guides and informational sources. This mysteriously hidden rolling hills garden is home to rare and exotic succulents from around the world with a Sarasota history dating back to 1950.
All plants, which are grown on the property, are offered at reasonable prices. Purchases are by cash or check only. Donations of plants, pots, volunteer time and funds are welcome at any time.
