250+ horticulture, landscape and restoration professionals will attend from throughout Florida. One in five will be a landscape architect or designer. Expect to see wholesale growers, retail nurseries, garden centers, environmental and landscape professionals, and staff from municipalities and public agencies.

Plant loving public at the plant sale

Plant-Loving Public

By popular demand, we’ve expanded our program to offer special sessions just for the public: master gardeners, native plant enthusiasts and the property owner who wants a more sustainable, enjoyable and lower-maintenance landscape. PLUS a public plant sale both days.
