Mitch Armstrong Nursery survives the 2011 summer !

August 24, 2011

We are back !! Finally ! Thank you for your patience as we have spent the hot summer months trying to stay cool and get more plants growing.

First, Aunt Mary's hand-made Rustic Cedar Birdhouses are back in stock ! We have a great selection, and each one is unique. These houses are great for real-use or just garden decoration.
Here's some pics:

One-of-a-kind Double Bird house---$45









Our single story houses are all unique, with sturdy back boards to hand on fence posts or on a hook from a tree, and of course, they look great free-standing on a patio table or garden log --Single story Cedar Houses are $30 each or 2 for $50


We are now gearing up for the Fall Market and Plant Show season and we are looking forward to returning to our very own Saturday Morning Market, downtown St. Pete on Sat. Oct 1st. We have two other events happening soon too, a Plant and Garden Sale in Tarpon Springs in September, and the big Fall Plant & Garden Sale at Tropiflora Nursery, in Sarasota. See details below.

Meanwhile, Annie has finally got the Plant Availability List ready for input and will start putting it on our blog tomorrow.
