Deep South Nurseries


Deep South Nurseries is a wholesale edibles and native ornamental plant nursery, with 20+ years of experience.  We are located in North Fort Myers less than 10 minutes from downtown Fort Myers.

 Owner/grower Rick Joyce, a certified arborist, and his wife Cheryl strive to provide access and education related to easy growing edibles for our Southwest Florida area.   Emphasis is placed on sustainable practices, butterfly attractors, “super fruits” like goji berry, and kid-friendly options such as the spineless prickly pear!

We are Florida Native Plant Society, Florida Association of Native Nurseries, and Fresh from Florida Dept. of Agriculture program members, as well as being a certified member of the Florida DEP Water Quality Initiative. We utilize Florida nursery best practices, focusing on organic methods.
