The Sarasota Garden Club will be hosting its second annual Gardens in Paradise tour on Saturday, March 21. The event will include tours of six private home gardens in the Ringling Museum area, as well as the Garden Club’s 14 botanical gardens, and lectures on gardening tips and practices, prize drawings and a Gardeners Marketplace. The proceeds for this event go to to civic beautification, scholarships and outreach programs.

The tour runs from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Tickets are $30 in advance or $35 the day of the tour and are available in person at the Sarasota Garden Club at 1131 Boulevard of the Arts or online at

The garden locations are kept a secret almost until the tour begins, but here are a few inspiration photos to hold you over until then.
