The Night Bloomers Circle of the Garden Club of St. Petersburg is an energetic group of garden enthusiasts. The circle was founded in 2008 in response to a community need for evening horticultural programs. The Night Bloomers sponsors the Horticulture for Weekend Gardener series providing informative evening horticulture programs.  The Night Bloomers meet year round on the second Tuesday of each month at the Garden Center at 6:30 pm, programs begin at 7 pm.  The public is welcome at all regular meetings for a nominal charge of $5.00 per meeting.   The Night Bloomers participate in all Garden Club activities and fundraising with an emphasis on the Flea Market and Plant Sale.   The Night Bloomers support World Gardening, Camp Wekiva and the Junior Gardeners at Westgate Elementary school. The Night Bloomers welcome new members and guests at all of our lively and informative programs.        Meetings: Second Tuesday at 6:30 pm at the Garden Center
