Mt. Dora Here We Come ! November Happenings


We had a lot of fun at our Markets this past Halloween weekend !

This past weekend also marked the first appearance of gorgeous Bougainvillea plants and they were snapped up quickly by eager customers.

This coming weekend, we will not be at our regular markets as we head to the beautiful town of Mt. Dora, for the 16th Annual Plant & Garden Fair. This is one of our favorite away shows to do as the town is so unique and the set up along Lake Dora is one of nicest places any vendor could wish for. The show runs Sat & Sun , 9am-5pm, Nov. 5 & 6th. Entrance to the show is free and there is plenty of parking in the nearby downtown community, plus they usually have a shuttle. Note: The City of Mt. Dora does NOT allow pets within their events, so leave your treasured 4 leggers behind.

This show is very unique in that they have 75 of the best growers from Florida and the SE United States and we all have our specialties, so there is lots of great plant offerings. They also have yard art and other plant-related specialist. Our very own Linda Taylor, of Its Our Nature, even travels up to offer her wonderful Hats and organic clothing.

Mt. Dora is an ez drive from many counties around the state. We have customers come in from all over the state as they love the plant show, and they love the unique atmosphere and shops that Mt. Dora provides. It's definitely a great One-Tank Road trip if you haven't been there before, so mark your calenders and we hope you can make it.

You can google Mt. Dora to get ez maps, and the garden show is located in Simpson Cove on the east side of Mt. Dora, just 1 block south of the downtown. Bring carts, or, you can pick up your purchases at the their official pick-up spot, or from the back of vendor booths along the main drive.

This week, the weather forecast brings great news of some much need rainfall which our gardens will appreciate. It is suppose to get a bit coolish, but we say "bring it on"! This is a great time of year to get new plants in and established and the cooler weather is wonderful to work outside after our broiling summer.
