Rockledge Gardens is the largest and most complete garden center and nursery in Brevard County and central coastal Florida—family owned and operated since 1960. We’re your one-stop resource for the best in Florida gardening! Knowledgeable. Beautiful. Local.
6 beautiful acres of tropical and hardy trees and fruit trees; shrubs, annuals and perennials; a lush sprawling greenhouse full of house plants and patio plants, orchids, and bromeliads; and a huge selection of garden accessories, tools, and supplies. Plus, the services you want and need: delivery, planting, garden design and problem-solving, plant rentals, and more.
Rockledge Gardens is truly locally grown! Family owned and operated for 55 years, we “grew up” here and know gardening here. We consider it our privilege and responsibility to maintain the trust of local gardeners and to give back to our community. And since 2012 our vegetable farm, The Farm at Rockledge Gardens, has provided the community with a new source of fresh, healthy, local produce grown with natural methods and without harmful pesticides or chemicals.
