Celebrate Spring at EPIC Flower and Garden Expo
The Arboretum at St. Johns County Agriculture Center is truly worth a visit! These beautiful gardens have received several first-place awards from the University of Florida and an international award at the Master Gardeners conference. The gardens hold a diverse collection of plants featuring new varieties, wildflowers and favorite old-fashioned standards. One bed alone holds over 2,000 plants! The gardens are planted and maintained by Master Gardeners who put hundreds of hours into this project. You may visit the gardens at any time as they are free and always open to the public. The gardens can be used as a venue for weddings, reunions and special events. Spend some precious moments enjoying the flowers and butterflies, or a picnic under the shade of the trees.
