Plant City Garden Club is known for being a very active club with a variety of activities and events. Be sure to check with the committee chairman and get involved with an activity or project that is of special interest to you.
The GardenFest and More, The Flower Show and The Strawberry Festival Horticulture Show are our three biggest projects where we really need every member to get involved and help.

Flower Show: “Putting on The Ritz” For The Holidays
Our Annual flower show has turned into quite the event with a full house attending the show and dinner in the main dining room. We won the National Award for our Flower show in 2012. We have the prettiest horticulture, the most creative floral designs, the best center of interest and to top it all off we have fun doing it. It takes all hands from helping with interesting titles to the classes, to setting up the staging, helping check in horticulture, entering horticulture and designs, to hosting, to tearing down and storing our staging.
- Date is February 6, 2014; set up Feb. 5;
- tear down Fed 7.
