SCCF Native Landscape & Garden Center
I had the pleasure of touring the SCCF Native Landscape & Garden Center recently with Jenny Evans as my guide! I first met Jenny when Jim and I purchased our Sanibel home in 2008. She visited our property and provided insight on which plants were native, and which were not. We had a bunch of Australian Pines in our yard, which, as you can imagine, are not native to Sanibel.
This "home visit" service that Jenny provided us is available to all new Sanibel homeowners, free of charge! (We do suggest donating to SCCF for their generous time and knowledge shared, or even hiring SCCF to do some of the landscape projects in your yard). Jenny explains more about their services in the video below.

Why Go Native?
If you want to:
Help fight the spread of invasive plants
Encourage birds, butterflies and wildlife in your yard
Conserve Sanibel drinking water
Contribute to better water quality in our lakes/rivers/Gulf
… then you want SCCF’s help fostering native species with your landscape! Give them a call at 239-472-1932 or better yet, stop by the Bailey Homestead Preserve.
Visit the SCCF Native Landscape & Garden Center
The SCCF Native Landscape & Garden Center is located at the Bailey Homestead Preserve at 1300 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel. They are currently open Monday-Thursday 10am-3pm. You can visit the gardens in-person to purchase plants, chat with staff, and check out their demonstration gardens. The demo gardens are a great way to view how native landscapes look when planted in groupings and fully grown.
We want to thank Jenny and SCCF for the time spent touring the gardens and the information shared for current/future Sanibel homeowners. Check out the video below to learn more about the services SCCF provides in order to increase the "native" footprint on the island.
