You can honor someone by givining a tax-deductible gift to the Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation. Depending upon your gift there are many options available for your memorial or recognition. You can have a paver placed along our memorial pathway in their name.  A birth, graduation, retirement or any special occasion will be memorialized at the Florida Botanical Gardens.  This can also be a wonderful birthday or holiday gift. Contact Stacey Ziti sziti@pinellascounty.org for details.

The Florida Botanical Gardens are home to a wide variety of plants from around the world. Botanical Gardens generally make sure each plant adds value to their collections. Whether that value is for teaching, interpretation, aesthetics or conservation each and every specimen is carefully chosen and carefully placed. You will find most plants labeled, telling visitors about the plants they are enjoying. The label gives the common name, scientific name and a quick overview of the things the plant needs for best growth and health.

Please consider a minimum $20.00 donation to the Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation Tree Bank to help us plant more unusual specimens in these gardens. Donations accumulate to purchase rare and significant trees and shrubs to the permanent plant collection at FBG. You will be notified about what species was purchased and where it is located within the gardens upon  planting.
