Gardeners and green thumbs will descend into Mount Dora for the 26th annual Mount Dora Plant and Garden Fair on November 14 and 15.
Once again the event will be held under the oaks at Donnelly Park in the heart of the city’s historic downtown.
The free festival features native and exotic nurseries from across Florida, as well as vendors selling garden decor and nature-inspired items. Gardeners can expect to find blooming orchids, flowering shrubs, fruit trees, and camellias, as well as succulents, bamboo, bromeliads, bonzai and other specialty plant vendors. There will also be vintage garden items and statuary for sale to enhance outdoor space. Gardeners can also seek advice from experts on plant care and other related topics.
