Ocala Show to Leu Gardens !

We had an awesome show up at the Marion County Master Gardeners Show in Ocala this past week...great city, great weather, and great customers! Our Hollyhocks and "Joey's" went out of our booth fast ! While we were up that way, we took advantage of visiting a large nursery in Gainesville that has great stuff that we can't find locally or is challenging for us to grow, so we have a bunch of new product to bring to market day, as well, to the Leu Gardens Show this weekend in Orlando !
Some of the new things:
White Almond Bush (yummy smelling)
Gorgeous pots of Horse Tail (great for water gardens)
Louisiana Iris (got purple, pink and yellow)
Red Diplodenia

We also our on our last Spring crop of Pink Tropical Hollyhocks, and luckily, we still have more "Joey's". Note, we will be taking most of these past 2 plants to Leu, but will have some at Sat. Market, so get there early if you want them.

Also, we were able to obtain some awesome new Lavender...Lavendula stoechas, a gorgeous plant that loves sun and has a yummy fragrance.

All for now, hope everyone is happy working in their gardens during this great weather !
