You can attend one, two or all the classes – anything you might be interested in. South Seminole Farm & Nursery has these full day of garden classes two times a year, once in the early spring, February and again in August, but every Saturday during the year, we have a free garden class at 9 AM. A variety of subjects are available. Just check our web site for a list of classes for the remainder of the year.

‘Ask the Master Gardener’ desk will be open all day to answer your specific gardening questions. We are always willing to help with your concerns.

If you have never been to South Seminole Farm and Nursery this is a chance to visit a green garden center carrying a large variety of plants for central Florida. We are an organic nursery that can provide all of you planting needs, organic fertilizers and pest/disease control products, organic produce, free range eggs and local honey, garden books and seeds, in addition to top-quality pottery and concrete statuary. Our goal is to help gardeners with an unprecedented level of customer service and a large selection of plants, produce and products. We hope to see you at the Farm!
