You are invited to attend our Mothers Day Sale, Saturday and Sunday, May 10 and 11, 2014. This sale is one of our four 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 2:00 pm.
There will also be a High Tea served in the gardens to celebrate Mothers Day. The seating times are 11:00 and 1:00 on both Saturday and Sunday. Ticket prices and reservation information will be posted here as the date approaches.
If you are not joining us for Tea on this Mothers Day, we do hope you will still come visit our Gardens. Our big plant sale remains free and open to the public. And, for your added enjoyment, our neighbor accross the street, Rob Branch, will have his beautiful gardens open on Mothers Day as well.
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.
