Green Thumb Festival is just a few days away! Here is the details:

Sat/Sun April 24/25 9am-4pm (but lots of people start coming at 8am). Bring a CART ! Our booth space numbers are #57-62..once you enter the event from the big parking lot, we are just down on the right side (street side) a little ways.

We are so excited because we have been working like mad to get great plants together and must say, we will have a fabulous selection of our exotic unusual/rare specimens along with great Butterfly loving plants. Here is a partial list of what we will have:

Passion Vines
Spiral Juncus (aka "bad hair day" plant)
Ferns
Scented Geraniums and the gorgeous Vancouver Centennial variety too
Figs & Bananas
Tibouchina Heteramallo (the big fuzz leaf ones)
Joeys
Bamboo Grass
Pony Tail Palms
Pipe Vines
Coral Honeysuckle (the Fla native)
Straw Flowers
Lavendula
Crown of Thorns
Irish Moss
Perennial Morning Glory
Eucalyptus
Sun Flowers
Agaves
and much, much more !

Some of our reallllly special things:
Louisiana Iris (3 types....purple/white/yellow)
Hollyhocks (deep pink, in full bud and ready to bloom)
Wollemi Pine (one of the rarest pines in the world from Australia)
Variegated Bleeding Heart
Double Purple Angel Trumpet
Spanish Lavender
Chinese Croton (excoeceria)
"Aimee" Gardenia (in full bud)

This year is going to mark something a little different for us.....we will have a lot of 1 gallon plants, which means you can buy more variety and not bust your budgets!

We anticipate great crowds as everyone is the mood to repair/replace and redo our yards since that nasty frost in January ! Since we putting all our energies into Green Thumb, we will not be at the downtown St. Pete Market this weekend.

Look forward to seeing you all at Green Thumb !
