KWBGS Nursery

The Key West Botanical Garden Nursery provides plants for Conservation use, education opportunities, and sales. Native plants, including many which are threatened and endangered, are grown for Garden replacement, for education purposes, as a training opportunity, for sales, and introduction or reintroduction to sites in the Florida Keys. The inventory stands at approximately 1500 plants.

The Nursery is now a focal point of the Key West Botanical Garden. It uses the synergy of our volunteers (Companions, Guardians, Docents), propagation, education and grant programs. This combination of efforts has allowed the Nursery to become a part of Key West and Keys community. The Nursery reaches out to Civics class students from HOB, high school student volunteers, referrals from City Urban Reforestation, and relationships with other Botanical Societies.
