The Berne Davis Gardens were professionally designed and lovingly planted by members of the Fort Myers-Lee County Garden Council, Inc. Among them are areas full of bromeliads, hibiscus, rare and tropical fruit, roses, herbs, native plants, orchids and a bonsai display.
Open for self-guided tours on Tuesday mornings (check the calendar for hours). The gardens are located at 2166 Virginia Avenue (off McGregor Blvd), Fort Myers, Florida 33901.
The Board has voted to make our lovely gardens a Botanical garden. The gardens will be open on a regular basis to the public and are ADA compliant. We are a member of the American Public Gardens Association. We are most excited about this, as is Berne Davis, and have Winnie Stone to thank for planting this idea and seeing it bloom.
The NGC’s initiative “Plant it Pink” garden honors breast cancer survivors. The grounds are graced with trees, shrubs, and container plantings along a memorial paver walkway. A large fountain, gazebo and rain garden add to the ambiance of peace and tranquility.
