The large landscape garden was neglected for many years and seriously damaged after the Ian Storm in September 2022. We brought with us many plants from our former garden in Naples Park. We are discovering what will grow here as compared to our established garden in the Park. Each week we learn what will thrive, strive, and survive under our new growing conditions. Fun in the Sun with new HOA regulations. Suggestions welcome!
The Edison Ford Winter Estate received a grant through Keep Lee County Beautiful (KLCB) to replace shrubs and trees along the historic Ford property line that were lost due to Hurricane Ian’s winds and storm surge. Planting the trees will begin on July 8.
Florida native trees Gumbo Limbo (Bursera simaruba), Satin Leaf (Chrysophyllum oliviforme), Dahoon Holly (Ilex cassine, var. ‘Nativa’), and Walter’s Viburnum (Viburnum obovatum) are being provided by local nurseries Duke Farms and J&C Nursery. The Rotary Club of Fort Myers South is providing volunteers to help with digging and planting.
