Visit Your Demonstration Gardens

Did you know that you have a public garden in Tallahassee that you can visit anytime to get new ideas for your home gardens?

The demonstration gardens of the Leon County Extension center of University of Florida IFAS are planted and maintained by the Master Gardener volunteers. The gardens include landscape plants, vegetable and herb areas, an area for xerophytic plants, and wildlife habitat areas. The overall objective of the gardens is to demonstrate the use of Florida-Friendly Landscaping principles to the community: Right Plant, Right Place - Water Efficiently - Fertilize Appropriately – Mulch – Attract Wildlife – Manage Yard Pests Responsibly – Recycle – Reduce Storm Water Runoff – Protect the Waterfront

    Do you have a planting layout/plan for the various planting areas within the demonstration garden? If I wanted to replicate a specific garden area how can I get a specific planting lists of that demonstration area? Thank you…

    P.S. the demonstration garden is absolutely amazing, attractive and inspiring. Thanks.
