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.

I love this place so much. The staff is very knowledgeable and kind. They have made me really get into plants since they help with any questions or concerns I may have about a plant. Love the whole atmosphere! It’s the go to place for all your plant needs ❤️

Love going here for pots. Staff are very knowledgeable about plant needs and macrame. Always a positive experience. I love how they collaborate with other garden district shops too.
