The Mandarin Garden Club was established in 1945, and the club welcomes all gardening enthusiasts. Visitors & new members are invited to attend monthly programs, with informative speakers and attend field trips. You can also tour our demonstration gardens: butterfly garden, ginger display, bromeliad garden, an herb garden, and native gardens.


Our gardens are open to the public from dawn to dusk except when we have rentals and the “Private Party’ sign is posted at the driveway entrance. Our grounds are closed during rental events. Our grounds are designed and maintained by some of the Master Gardeners of Duval County. We are located at 2892 Loretto Road, Jacksonville, Florida 32223. You can reach us at:  904-268-1192


The Photo Gallery Page includes some pictures of the beautiful flowers and surrounding grounds, and the inside of our rental facility. Pictures of previous rentals are available for viewing, as well.


The books sell for $12.00 for one and two for $20.00. They can be purchased at any of our Events, or by stopping by the Club on Thursday's between 12:30 pm and 2:30 pm.
