October 26th, 2011 · Leave a Comment

Old San Jose on the River, the riverfront community located on San Jose Boulevard near Jacksonville’s historic San Marco district and Downtown Jacksonville, will host The Garden Club of Jacksonville’s 90th Annual Flower Show and Home Tour. “Modern Mediterranean Muse” will be held Nov. 18 from noon to 4 p.m. and Nov. 19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door and visitors will enjoy a standard juried flower show with horticulture and design divisions staged in four decorated model homes throughout the Old San Jose on the River community. Ribbons will be awarded to entries in both divisions, along with four “Viewer’s Choice” awards for the most popular entries chosen by guests at the show.

The horticulture division features amateur growers presenting a minimum of 48 plants grouped according to classes and grown for a minimum of three months. Design exhibitors must be members of a federated garden club and have knowledge of the principles and elements of design. Design exhibits will be displayed in four condos, each with a special theme including “Perfect Pied-A-Terre” and “Winter Warmth.” Fictitious “owners” have also been created for each model based on size and decor to provide the personality of an occupied home. Guests can visit “The Garden Cart,” located in the garage of one of the models, featuring a home and garden boutique and refreshment area.

To purchase tickets to the event, call (904) 355-4224 or visit http://gardenclubofjacksonville.org.
