Becky’s Garden Shoppe is a little oasis just beyond the city limits of Punta Glorda. Upon arriving at the delightfully colorful house, visitors can spot an eclectic assortment of vasells, plants, and other unique decor. Just inside, you’ll find the owner, Becky herself, working in her open air studio and ready to greet visitors as they explore.

And, really, you become an adventurer in this whimsical world that she has created. Plants almost sing in vibrant purple bird cages. Charming pieces of furniture beckon you to sit down with a good book. Look a little further and you might spot the visual pun of toilets turned planters with bright cheery blooms bursting from the bowl.

 

Making your way along the meandering path, you’ll also find a unique assortment of plants; her arrangements serve as inspiration for your home and garden everywhere you turn. It is clear that a lot of love, sweat, and tears went into this place.

Do yourself a favor the next time you are in search of some inspiration, a thoughtful present for a special someone in your life, or a dose of happiness in the form of colorful unique goods and gorgeous plants (that you won’t find at Home Depot or Lowe’s), turn left on Elliott Street as you’re exiting I-75 toward Punta Gorda, drive past Powell's Nursery, and don’t stop until you find this sweet oasis. It packs a punch; and the shop and owner have personality to spare.
