Market Day and Holiday Plant Sale at Florida Botanical Gardens this weekend !

As we head closer to the culmination of the Holiday season later this month, and sending out our holiday cards, our hearts are filled with love and gratitude to the those around us.....our families, our customers, our fellow nursery people, our fellow market vendors,  who all contribute to keeping our little nursery business going. We have had some highs and lows, just like everyone, but all in all, 2014 has been good to us and we are heading strong into 2015 !

This weekend is an exciting one, we have Saturday Morning Market, downtown St. Pete, and then on Sunday, we set up at the beautiful Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo, for their annual Gift and Plant Sale.

Come stroll the gardens for the sale and check out 45 plus vendors, where you will find all sorts of plants and garden related items, then stroll the paths of the garden and enjoy the huge assortment of exotic and native plants, then stick around a bit longer when it gets dark, and you will be astounded by the Holiday lights in the's really a magical setting...pathways, bushes, vines and trees are glorious draped in bright colorful holiday lighting. Live music, good food and magical plants will brighten your spirits !  There is plenty of free parking in the park and a suggested donation of $2 for adults (kids are free) is a value deal for such fun. The gardens are set up for safe strolling and are all handicapped accessible.  Here's the details:
