We had a wonderful time at Selby Gardens in Sarasota this past weekend and Mother Nature gave us some great weather. The crowds were great, the setting just stunning, and we got to see lots of fellow plant vendor friends as well as old and new customers. Thanks much to Mike who runs the gardens and all his crew of volunteers that took great care with all of us and always had smiling faces on.

This weekend, we are back to our markets here in St. Pete and Tarpon, and we have a new crop of gorgeous FERNS !! We will also have more of the popular Spanish Lavender that everyone is loving.

Hard to believe that March is already here and we are set to go on a mammoth undertaking of doing 4 major Plant Shows plus covering markets in this next month. Keep tabs on our Blog for any updates, but for now, here is our schedule:
