This past Thursday, in the St. Pete Times Weekender section, they ran a great article about all the fab restaurants in the Tarpon Springs area, which is just in time to give you a great reason to come see us at the Tarpon Springs Plant Festival - next weekend, Sept. 24 & 25th...come check out some great plant and garden selections and get yourself some good eats in the vicinity of the show ! Check out the article at: Tarpon Springs Restaurants-St. Pete Times.
We are looking forward to this first show of our Fall season and we always love setting up along the main drag of the Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks. The show runs 10am-6pm Sat. and 10am-4pm on Sunday. Our booth will be located down at the West End. There is plenty of parking nearby, some you have to pay for, but there are open lots and nearby streets to park along. The best thing, where our booth will be, it will be very easy to pick out your stuff, enjoy the show, then drive down behind our booth area to pick it up.
The following weekend, 2 big events happening ! First, on Sat. Oct. 1st, Saturday Morning Market in downtown St. Pete reopens for it's 10th season ! Market hours are 9am-2pm, and our booth will be located on the last East-end aisle..come check us out !
Also, next weekend, starting on Friday, Sept. 30 and running through till Sunday, Oct. 2nd, is the annual Fall Plant Sale at Tropiflora Nursery in Sarasota. If you haven't visited this nursery, this is the year to check it out. They host their own plant sale as well as host visiting 30 plus plant vendor friends such as us, to set up too. Tropiflora is known world wide for its wide assortment of rare and unusual Bromeliads & Orchids and other rare tropical plants. Check out info for the sale at: www.tropiflora.com
We will have staff working both events, so hope to see some of you at one or both of the events!
If you haven't checked out our latest Availability list, we are adding a few items this week, so check out the list down at the bottom of our blog. We are open now, by appointment, for you to come by our place in St. Pete, if you are unable to get to the shows and/or markets, so shoot us an email or give us a call if you want to get a first chance at our Fall plant inventory & unique Cedar Birdhouses.
We know we are still having pretty warm days around here, but we can definitely tell the difference in the temps and humidity of mornings and evenings, so yeehaw, hopefully, Mother Nature will be ushering us into Fall sometime soon and I believe for all of us, the Fall is the best time of year to be out in the Garden ~~~~~~~~~~~~!
