Welcoming in December and the Holiday Season

(pic) Xmas Cactus

This past Thanksgiving weekend was a busy one with great turnout at both St. Pete and Tarpon Springs markets!

We had fun selling the first crop of Xmas Cactus Baskets, the Cedar Birdhouses are very popular ,and everyone enjoyed more Herb offerings such as Basil, Mint, Chives & Thyme.

With our moderate temps lately, it provides great opportunity to get some landscaping plants in and established. "La Nina" continues to be the over-riding factor in our weather and our winter season is forecasted to be mild and comfortable, which we really need after last years big freeze ! A lot of customers are turning more and more to doing container gardening and it's a great option for any plant, plus it's easier to protect in cold spells. Any plant can be adapted to a container as opposed to in-ground planting and the sunlight or shade and soil/fertilizer factors should be followed in your selections.

We strive to educate all our customers about caring for their plant purchases --we want you to have success in caring for your plants ! We take great pride in providing the best looking, healthiest specimens at great prices for you and we are always pleased at the great positive feedback we get from everyone about our displays and the long term results of our plants.

This weekend, we have more Xmas Cactus coming, Hollyhocks, Bougainvillea, Herbs and some other exciting new things, so be sure to stop by at our market booth to check things out !

Here is our schedule:

Sat. Dec. 4th Sat. Morning Market, Downtown St. Pete 9am-2pm

Sun. Dec 5th Tarpons Springs Sunday Market 9am-2pm

Also, you can email us with your "wish list" anytime, for plant purchases during the week, or make an appointment to stop by and check out our inventory at our house.

Lastly, have you ever heard the term "Booming" ?! Booming is when you support Small Businesses, so save yourself a crazy trip to the Mall, and come out to Markets....we promise that you can find something for everyone on your Holiday Gift List.

Happy Blooming and Happy Booming !
