Garden Shoppe at Edison, Ford Winter Estates opens
On May 15, the Garden Shoppe at Edison and Ford Winter Estates reopened for customers to purchase plants and gardening-related items. Initially, it is open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday only, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The rest of the site will remain closed.
“Many people are spending more time working in their gardens now and we’re getting requests to open the Garden Shoppe so that people can buy plants,” President Mike Flanders said. “It is a spacious outdoor area, where visitors can still practice social distancing.”
The Garden Shoppe is a nursery, where people can purchase different kinds of plants, including flowering shrubs, butterfly plants, herbs, fruit trees, Florida natives, and rare exotics. Ceramic flower pots, water fountains, wind chimes, and garden art items are also available. It also carries worm castings and other soil amendments.
To help keep everyone safe, staff will be wearing protective masks, surfaces will be cleaned and sanitized, and all guests are encouraged to practice social distancing. Shoppers should park along Larchmont Avenue and enter through the gate with the red pergola. A limited number of garden carts will be available, so visitors are encouraged to bring their own cart.
