Happy Holidays all ! This month many of us celebrate a myriad of different types of Holiday observances, and in our house, it is definitely Ho Ho Ho time soon !
We are counting down to the last 3 weekends of markets and events before Dec. 25th, so come on out and get some great gifts of plants for yourself and those near and dear!
Sat. Dec. 10th, Saturday Morning Market, downtown St. Pete
Market hours 9am-2pm
Remember! You can purchase plants and we will hold them while you enjoy market and you can also drive up behind our booth to pick them up so you don't have to carry them to far-off parking places !
Sun. Dec. 11th Florida Botanical Gardens, Largo - Gift and Plant Sale
Along with the nightly Xmas light shows the garden puts on, they have this huge one-day Botanical event with more than 60 vendors from around the state who will have a great assortment of plants, yard art, arts and crafts and edibles.
The vendors will be set up all around the gardens. We will be in spaces 51/52, and if they have a paper program to hand out, we will be listed under "Exotic Tropical Plants". Our spaces are close to the Walsingham Road 2nd entrance, so it will be easy for you to pick up your purchases !
Some of our favorite Plant Vendor friends will be set up near us, such as My Mothers Garden Organic Herbs, and George Griepenburg Butterfly Plants.
For directions etc: check out their site at www.flbg.org
Note: There is parking all around the event, on the southern end by Walsingham, up on the north end near Ulmerton Road and side roads, so there is plenty of free parking and free admittance for this popular event.
We still have Bougainvillea, Xmas Cactus, great Cold-hardy geraniums and perennials and of course, Aunt Mary's Cedar Birdhouses !
Hope to see you all soon, and thanks again for supporting and buying LOCAL !
