Today is an exciting day, we get to start setting up for the big Green Thumb Festival, here in St. Pete, this weekend. Mitch and I have been working like mad to bring together the best assortment of Exotic Tropicals, Butterfly lover perennials and Passion Vines, (yes, we will have tons of Milkweed), and we have some truly spectacular rare specials that will bring joy to any gardeners life! We were hoping to have a list of plants to post, but alas, the amount just started to grow and grow and grow, and we can promise you that we will have hundreds of different variety of plants and you are sure to find something you love.
Friday, all day, Walter Fuller Park will be abuzz with over 100 vendors setting up their booths, and getting ready for the big crowd that will descend upon us on Saturday and Sunday.
You can check our previous blog for all the info, but here it is again, in quick form:

We hope to see you there ! And, if you can't make it until Sunday, don't worry, everyone restocks Saturday night (we constantly restock all day during the show), so there will still be a great selection all weekend.
