GTGC visits gardens in Palm Beach

Special to the Lake Okeechobee News/GTGC

Last fall, the Green Thumb Garden Club (GTGC) went to The Society of Four Arts Garden in Palm Beach. The tour began Oct. 16 at The Botanical Garden, which is maintained by The Garden Club of Palm Beach. The gardens are divided up into nine distinct areas. Originally designed in 1938, the gardens display the diversity of tropical plants suitable for landscaping in South Florida’s climate.
