UF/IFAS GCREC - Plant City Center
The UF/IFAS Teaching Garden at the Plant City Center is an arboretum and collection of gardens. Enter through the arboretum and walk down paths lined with native and flowering trees. Farther on, view themed garden beds showcasing plants that perform well throughout central Florida.
While created as a teaching resource, the garden provides ideas and inspiration for anyone interested in gardening or landscaping.
This beautiful online tour of the garden is almost as amazing as visiting in person.
This full-color, printable brochure has a map of the garden and descriptions of the themed garden beds you'll see at our teaching garden.
