Mounts Botanical Garden set to reopen after closing for Hurricane Irma

After two weeks of cleanup and recovery, Palm Beach County's oldest and largest botanical garden will reopen.

Starting Monday, October 2, at 10 am guest will be able to once again stroll the Mounts Botanical Garden (free, but they do ask for donations).

“Mounts suffered five percent damage to many of our beloved trees,” says Curator-Director Rochelle Wolberg in a statement. “Thanks to the hard work of our horticulture staff and dedicated volunteers, we have cleared all of the debris and the Garden is ready to reopen. While we are very grateful for the support of generous donors who helped in this effort, the revenue costs for recovery continue to mount, so additional financial support is needed.”

In addition, the Exotic Plant & Orchid Sale has been rescheduled to next weekend. Visitors can stroll through the Garden and enjoy the new and improved sale featuring an amazing selection of rare and unusual orchids and exotic plants from more than 50 vendors.
