They donâ€™t call it the Audubon Park Garden District for nothing. When you combine the areaâ€™s modest, locally owned Palmerâ€™s Garden & Goods along Corrine Drive and the expansive, lush Leu Gardens around the corner, itâ€™s like a full-fledged, green-thumbed Eden. And the gardening set really comes out of the bushes each year for Leuâ€™s annual plant sale, where more than 50 Florida-based growers sell an array of greenery â€“ anything from perennials to fledgling trees to blossoming buds. The best part for beginners: Expert horticulturists will be on hand to lend advice on topics like planting, maintenance and sun exposure. We highly suggest you bring a wagon if you plan to take anything home. This might be the closest youâ€™ll get to viewing the roots of Central Floridaâ€™s budding landscape of local growers. â€“ Aimee Vitek
