Back to Market and Anna Maria this coming weekend!
Mitch & I are back from our weekend in Mt. Dora for their Fall Plant show. The town and our hosts, Sherry and Stuart were wonderful, unfortunately, we had 30mph winds in our faces all weekend which meant for a trying set up and sales. Thanks to the many customers who braved the elements to come out!
Our crew at the Roser Park Show this past weekend had a great time. Interestingly, we had better turn out on Sunday than Saturday, but there was so many other events going on in town. Customers were very happy to see us have some Bougainvillea available!
The picture above is the gorgeous bloom on the Purple Passion Fruit Vine we have right now. Although all passion vines bear fruit/seed, most are too seedy to eat....this is the exception, with a very tasty fruit that can be enjoyed as-is or we have heard of many that make yummy blender drinks with them !
This coming weekend, Sat. Nov. 14th, we will be back at the St. Pete downtown Market. We will also have our beautiful plants at Anna Maria Island for their Fall Arts & Craft/Butterfly Festival, so if you are in that area, come on down and see us.
We will have more Bougainvillea available this weekend along with some great Fall hanging baskets, passion vines and we are running a special on lush Areca Palms, along with our other rare and uncommon offerings. Weather looks to be great this weekend, so get out and get some fresh air and enjoy the events !
