2022 Presidents Day Weekend Sale

Put this special event on your calendar today:
Saturday,  February 19, 2022
9:00 am  to 1:00 pm

This is one of the Society's three big annual sales open to the public.  Admission is free.  We will be offering bargain prices on many kinds of beautiful succulent plants.  There will also be an outdoor educational program offered on the north lawn at 11:00.

We are also pleased to announce that we are now offering two new payment types, credit cards and contactless payment, in addition to cash or check.

Our volunteers are excited to meet you and share with you the Succulent Society's Garden and an appreciation for these wonderful plants.

Please Note:  We will require masks to be worn for this event — by all volunteers and all visitors — even if folks have been vaccinated.  Thanks for your cooperation.

Sale Day Program

Beginning at 11:00 on Sale Day, our outdoor educational program will feature Micheal Frelix, owner of All About Succulents,  a Tampa grower of gorgeous succulent plants.

Micheal's program, "All About Hoyas", will cover everything you'll ever need to know about how to grow big beautiful Hoyas.  Questions will be answered and a variety of samples will be on hand to demonstrate the diversity of this fascinating group of plants.

Come to our February 19th sale and meet Micheal.  Bring your questions about Hoyas and succulent plants in general. 

Art and Artists In The Gardens On Sale Days

We love art and artists!  We typically arrange to have one or more artists showcase their talents in our Gardens on Sale Days.  In the past we've featured potters, painters, illustrators, and weavers.  Other disciplines would also be welcomed.  If you are a local artist interested in exposure to our arts-loving visitors, please use our Contact Page to ask for details.

Watch this space for details about the art and artists we will be featuring in upcoming editions of our "Art In The Gardens Program".

The Sparkman House and Grounds

The Sparkman HouseThe Sarasota Succulent Society is located on the grounds of an historic depression-era home, recently restored, which will be open for viewing.  With its peaceful atmosphere, the reasonable prices for plants, free admission, and the fact that this historic building and our Gardens are usually only open to the public 3 hours each week, this event is a special treat.

This mysteriously hidden rolling hills garden — with a Sarasota history dating back to the 1930's — is home to rare and exotic succulents from around the world.  During our public sales we have volunteers on hand to serve as guides and sources of information.  We look forward to sharing our unique Gardens with you.

Terms of Sales and Donations

All plants are offered at reasonable prices and all proceeds are used to maintain the Gardens, fund our scholarship program, and enable our educational outreach.  Purchases can be made by credit card, contactless payment systems, cash, or check.  Donations of plants, pots, volunteer time and funds are welcome at any time.  The Society is a federally registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization and our operations are staffed entirely by unpaid volunteers.
