Hello all, and thanks for continuing to follow our blog and news of Mitch Armstrong Nursery. The Saturday morning Summer Market at Williams Park here in St. Pete, came to an end last weekend and we are very grateful for the turnout and support to us and all our fellow vendors over the summer months.
The 12th Season of the Regular big Saturday Morning Market, will reopen on Sat. Oct. 5th, back at Al Lang Field parking lot in downtown St. Pete.
In the meantime, we are holding Plant Sales at our house, this weekend, and next (spreading it out over 2 weekends at we know there is a lot going on here in town, plus it will give Mitch time to bring more plants up from the nursery). See details below !
We have lots of good bargains, and good stock that needs to go to good homes, so we can make room for our inventory for the Fall season.
Passion Vines are blooming gloriously around here and right now, in stock, we have Lady Margaret (the Burgundy colored flower, which is a butterfly host and nectar plant); Alata Ceruella (purple/blue/white colored flower which is butterfly host, nectar and feeder plant); Quadrangularis (large leaf/stem with purple/red/white flower which is butterfly friendly as well as fruit bearing); Purple Possum (frilly purple/white flower and our most popular fruit bearing passion fruiting vine).
We have some other great Butterfly friendly specimens, such as the Popcorn Cassia, Chaya (white flowering Jatropha that has edible leaves) and Giant Milkweed (lavender flower).
Also in stock, is one of our most popular plant specimens, Egyptian Papyrus. In 3 gallons, they average around 5 to 6 ft tall now.
Shade plant right now, we have some great stuff; Sunset Philodendron, Lemon-Lime Philodendron, N'Joy pathos, Giant Elephant Ears, Spearhead Alocasia and more.
And, lots of other misc. plants that need good homes!
