I love going to buy vines and plants, but after going to the real Butterfly World in Coral Springs, and butterfly pavilions in Costa Rica, Flamingo Nursery is really tiny and limited. Nice for a tourist that has never seen butterflies, but not a great attraction.

I tool my kids this past weekend and they had a great time.
We took a hay ride, walked around and they decorated pumpkins.
There are several spots perfect for fall pictures.

There was a lot of people over the weekend, so I suggest to get there early (I had to park on Flamingo, cause parking lot was full).

It may be late fall but the sun is still beaming strong in South Florida. And its pumpkin carving time! At one of several fall weekend festivals at the Flamingo Road Nursery Farmers Market there are pumpkins aplenty for the kids to choose from along with hayrides, pumpkin painting, and of course a large array of regional planting every sort of and garden ornament. A fun day's outing for kids in a run up to Halloween. Light snacks and bbq available as well. Be prepared for large crowds at this normally sedate garden nursery. An enjoyable afternoon visit on a fall weekend.

If you want to see butterflies pay to go to Butterfly Gardens in Coral Springs. It's pricey, but worth it. Flamingo Road Nursery is a great place to shop, but does not need a small butterfly garden.

This is actually a commercial nursery business with a lot going on. See the website . In addition to a great nursery , and outside furniture display, There is a very nice farmers market, bakery, candy counter, specialty foods, gift shop etc. We actually did not see the butterfly pavilion. We had a terrific lunch at the deli counter, a freshly made italian, veggie type of sandwich. The eating area inside is very small and in the middle of the store. It is not a restaurant. There is however picnic tables around the building and a nice setting to enjoy lunch. For a business, you almost feel like you are walking around a garden, with all of the plants, displays, and fountains, but it is a retail store, not a attraction. There appears to be a lot of educational types of display around the grounds, so that you can make a educated purchase. We talked to the owner who was very helpful with our questions regarding the plants. You (adults) could spend a lot of time here, if landscaping and nature are your interest. I don't think children would last too long outside of the butterfly pavilion
