We had a wonderful experience at the Thrifty Garden. It is so much more than a garden, with a fantastic cafe, coffee shop, gift shop, gallery and butterfly garden to boot. We had some great grilled hot dogs and refreshments....they have draft beer and fun drinks for the adults too. My kids enjoyed the butterfly garden about as much as the Kennedy Space center which costs hundreds more. This is a hidden gem in Fort Myers not to be missed. Such a cool little find. We will be back.

Rich is a wealth of plant knowledge! (A garden if you will) he was attentive and helpful with our plant selection. He and the lady who run the store, advised us on indoor vs outdoor leafy fellows and did not hesitate to answer all our questions! It was a great experience and I would recommend this shop to anyone with or without a green thumb!

What a cool place! They spent so much time talking to me about my cucumber beetle problems, turned me on to companion planting and helped me pick out several different things for my garden. They had some pretty things inside as well. I'll definitely be back!
