Market Season coming to an end May 2011


Whoa, baby, it's hot outside ! Even my garden fairy on the shelf seems to be wilting. But luckily, the mornings and evenings are still a nice time to work around the garden and enjoy some fresh air.....

This coming Sat., May 28th is the last day of the Saturday Morning Market regular season so it's always a bittersweet time. Come on down and see us on the East 6th row, we will have a fabulous display and will have many items at discounted prices. Market hours are 9am-2pm.

The Punta Gorda show last weekend had a disappointing turnout so we still have plenty of great plant stock available.

The Market is going to continue, on a very small scale, on Saturdays in Williams Park with Produce, food products, arts and crafts.

As for Armstrong Nursery, we won't be participating in the summer market but will be focusing on our own nursery growth and, we are starting a new venture, with more opportunities and ways for you to get your plants, plus, we will be starting a "seed" availability for mail order.

You can just assume, yes, we are still technically open for business ! You can call or email us anytime you are looking for a particular plant or item, and we can set up appointments to get together !

Starting next week, we will have a current availability list and will update it weekly. At this time, for those out of towners, we are are not set up shipping plants yet, but will be working on that operation over the summer too.

We are excited about the new areas that we want to expand, and using the internet is a great platform for communication and fulfilling those ongoing plant needs. As always, we treasure our friends, customers and supporters who have kept us going one more season, so many many thanks to you all, and please, keep in touch and keep us in mind before you head off to those big box stores !
