Butterfly winging into April & Green Thumb Fest coming !
Visit us at Saturday Morning Market, downtown St. Pete, this Saturday, to get first dibs on this popular plant!
After a great show at Wintergarden last weekend, we are returning to the St. Pete Market this Saturday, and will have a great display of Spring and Summer perennials and tropicals, as well, we have a new huge crop of assorted FERNS of all types, that are just looking for a home in your shady garden!
Note: the weather is calling for some rain and storms on Saturday, but hopefully, they will happen late in the day, so our plan is to be at market, come rain or shine till 2pm !
Then, it's time to get ready for the popular Green Thumb Festival, here in St. Pete, at Walter Fuller park on the next weekend, April 28th and 29th. We have already started staging our plant stock for the festival and we will have many unusual and rare tropicals, Bougainvillea, Vines and the ever-popular Tropical Hollyhocks will be front and center! Our goal at Green Thumb is to provide a lot of cool looking and EZ growing Butterfly plants that will enhance your gardens all year long, as well as unusual plants that you will NOT see a the Big Box Stores !
Stay tuned to our blog next week as we will start providing a listing of what we will have to offer!
For info about Green Thumb, look to our previous post last week for details about this great show and keep checking in as we add commentary and pictures on our biggest week of the year.
Also note, since we are putting all our efforts to Green Thumb, we will not be at the Sat. Morning Market, but we will return to the market for the month of May, winding down to the last regular market day, Sat. May 25th.
Then ! Yes, we will participate in the Sat. Morning SUMMER Market! The Summer Market will be located at cool and shady Williams Park, downtown St. Pete. The summer market official begins Sat. June 1st, but look for our first set up on Sat. June 8th (June 1st is Mitch's grandson's big graduation so we must be there to cheer him on). More info about the summer market to come and what kind of things we will be doing with plants, Birdhouses and more !
