  • Very nice small botanical garden, great bonzai, nice variety of other flora, a lot of Florida native plants.
  • This place is phenomenal ! Tucked away just off the main road it offers tranquility in their wide array of tropical plants and winding passages. Their Japanese Garden and HUGE James Smith Bonsai Galley makes this garden a true hidden gem.
  • For being family owned this is by far one of the most relaxing places to go its extremely cheap and its worth it to see all the plants and cats
  • Tranquility in Ft. Pierce
  • Heathcote is a small, but beautifully crafted, attraction in the Fort Pierce area. They are ranked #1 or #2 on TripAdvisor's "Things To Do", which gives testimony to the uniqueness of their exhibits, especially the James J. Smith Bonsai Gallery. The volunteers are enthusiastic and veyr knowledgable. Definitely worth a visit if you're passing by and if you live in the area, consider a relationship with them. They could certainly use our help to beautify our community.
