Edison Ford planted our Butterfly Garden several years ago with the help of the Edison Garden Club, Fort Myers-Lee County Garden Council and the UF Master Gardeners. Since then the garden has flourished and features a lovely reflecting pool with sculptured wading birds by Don Wilkins. The Garden Shoppe also offers a variety of butterfly attracting plants year-round for purchase. Edison Ford horticulture staff is always available for questions.
This is a chance to participate in wonderful programs, enjoy a boxed lunch with friends and meet people from all over Florida. The guest lecturers include noted Botanist, Roger Hammer, who will speak on butterfly gardens; Karen Finch, Sarasota butterfly authority; Sandra Baker-Hinton on butterfly release; and noted artist and writer, Elizabeth Smith will teach illustrated garden journaling. Debbie Hughes, Edison Ford Senior Horticulturalist will speak on pests and pesticides.
