Central Florida Garden Scene: October Edition


I like plant sales too, squirrel buddy.

October is seven days old already? Sheeeeeeesh.

I have my work cut out for me and I need some fun activities to balance out the work-to-fun ratio. The timing of this realization seems perfect because there are several garden-related community events planned for this month. Here are a few of them:

Boktoberfest Plant Sale: October 19

One of my favorite botanical gardens,¬†Bok Tower Gardens, is hosting their annual plant sale infused with all of the great aspects of Oktoberfest. Boktoberfest Plant Sale promises to be more than just the average plant sale with the availability of food and drinks in this event. Done. Say no more. I’ll be there on the morning of Saturday October 19th.


Ghost Stories: October 25

Orlando’s Harry P. Leu Gardens¬†will be hosting an evening of eerie stories the Friday night before Halloween. Their collection of camellias and Leu House Museum will serve as the backdrop for Ghost Stories. Organizers have even included a warning for this event so it seems like the fear factor is legit. Bring it on!

Honorable Mentions: varied dates

The other outings for October don’t have set dates…

I’ve been wanting to visit the Winter Park Farmer’s Market for quite some time. Hopefully, I’ll sacrifice sleeping in on a Saturday to venture over to the good ole city of culture and heritage.

Next is the Epcot Food & Wine Festival. Believe me, Epcot makes it easy for me to make this wine and dine event into a plant-related activity. I’ll share photos to prove it.

Lastly, and don’t be alarmed, I’ll be visiting a cemetery for research related to a blog post I’m working on for Halloween week.

Happy Monday, y’all. The comments are yours.
