NEWS: The Best of South Florida’s Gardens


Join Pacific Horticulture February 13–18, 2018 for an immersive garden adventure in the semi-tropical clime of South Florida. From our base in Miami, we’ll visit The Kampong, a botanical garden that was once the private estate of Dr. David Fairchild, an influential horticulturist and plant collector. Other botanical garden visits include Montgomery Botanical Center and Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, both lush educational gardens committed to the conservation of tropical plants, and we’ll take in the exquisite beauty of a 20-acre estate in Redlands known as Patch of Heaven. Our visit to R.F. Orchids includes a tour of the beautiful nursery and background on their history, production methods, and sales operation.

Landscape architect Raymond Jungles, who is renowned for his work on private gardens and resort hotels throughout Florida and the Caribbean, will accompany our group to Naples Botanical Garden. Jungles, who was part of the garden’s design team, will provide a special tour with backstory about the garden’s design and implementation. The designer will also provide our group exclusive entrance to four private home gardens that he has created and join us for a farewell dinner at Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse in Miami Beach. San Diego landscape designer Amelia B. Lima will escort this tour.
