Tom & Linda White, Owners.


Please contact us for plant pricing and availability information at

Zone Ten Nursery is five acres of garden, plant nursery and tropical fruit trees in South Florida. It originated in the early 80's with our collection of rare and interesting plants gathered from tropical and subtropical areas around the world. We opened for business on February 1, 1993. A fair number of these plants are available for sale to the public on Sunday afternoons. Our nursery was registered with the Florida Department of Agriculture in 1992 in order to make available to interested plant collectors a variety of exotic, hard to find and unusual tropical plants.

Sorry, we do not ship.

Our environment is more that of a botanical garden than of a conventional retail nursery and we are constantly adding new species to our landscape and to our nursery offerings. Everything is clearly labeled and priced, so you can browse through the container plants at your leisure as well as view many of these plants established in our gardens. It does take a little effort to get to our nursery, but we believe you will find the experience worthwhile. We are currently propagating well over 100 species and varieties of plants - everything from Florida natives to flowering gingers and heliconias to rainforest trees. These plants are available to the general public at our nursery at very reasonable prices. We are an old-fashioned nursery with some new ideas. We hope you enjoy our web site. We have included a number of educational  pages here along with the listings, descriptions and photographs of many of our tropical plants.

The Zone Ten web site is quite large, so please see our Navigation Page to access numerous other pages relating to specific types of plants with color photos and many other topics of interest.Shown and described are plants that we have from time to time. Species can come into and out of stock rapidly, so be sure to request a price list at to find out what is in current inventory.

Zone Ten Nursery accepts major credit cards, bank check cards and debit cards. Please note that our nursery is not affiliated with any other website, nursery or landscaper. Several other businesses have usurped our name, but because "zone ten" is a term in common usage by the Department of Agriculture. it cannot be trademarked. We have been in business under this name since 1993.

The Zone Ten web site was designed and written by Tom and Linda White. Please use the email address at the top of the page for plant pricing and availability. For other inquiries, you can call us at 786 732 7055.
