Week of Feb 18-21 & Upcoming Botanical Shows!
We are recovering from a very cool weekend, and the sun finally came out on Sunday to lift our spirits ! Both weekend mornings were very cold and it was a challenge to keep our plant inventory comfy.
The pic here is the lovely "Lady Margaret" Passion Vine, which is looking especially great right now and has been a popular buy!

We are looking forward to all of these big Spring Plant Shows and will try our hardest to also have presence at our local area markets too, but we may miss out some weekends, so be sure to check the website for our up-to-date schedule. If you love plants, all of the big Spring Plant Shows are within easy driving distance of the Tampa Bay Area and we encourage everyone to visit them for a little adventurous road trip and the added bonus of seeing a lot of excellent plant offerings !
As always, if you are not able to get to the markets and have a particular plant(s) you want, email us so we get it for you during the off days of market.
Lastly, although temps are still pretty chilly around here, this is a good time to get out on a sunny day and start TLC'ing your gardens. I am starting this week with a bit of weed pulling, laying fresh mulch and trimming back my bushes etc. I am eager to get going with putting in some new things to spruce the place up for Spring!
