Butterfly Wing - Jumping into June !

Well, ahead of schedule, the Butterfly Wing Plant (Christia obcordata) is here and ready to go to loving homes starting this weekend !

Right now, quantity is limited and we are taking reservations for them (thanks to the many who have been emailing about your excitement!)  If you want to reserve your plant for market pickup, or need to pick up at another time, email me at :

We will be bringing reservations plus limited quantity to market this Saturday. During the week, it's best to email us to make an appointment time that is convenient for you.

This Saturday starts the "Summer Market" division of Saturday Morning Market, your favorite local downtown St. Pete market.

The Market is located at Williams Park, whose boundaries are 1st and 2nd avenue North, between 3 & 4th streets.  The Market is located on the north end of the park and Williams Park is a historic location for our hometown and is also known as the Bus Hub but it has this really cool amphitheater area, lots of green grass and  when you are there, you really feel like you are in a Small Town happening.   The market is nestled under towering shady oaks, and winding pathways. It is a safe and convenient location and parking can be easily found along side streets. 

40 plus vendors will be at the market and you can still find great produce, Plants, Arts and Crafts, Food, Fun and Music.

The Summer Market hours are 9am to 1pm.  Most vendors are there by 8am and everyone is happy to stay a bit later if there is still lots of customers milling around !

The beginning of summer always marks a new season of lots of heat and sun and great rain. We always have hardy full sun alternatives for planting as well as for your shade gardens and in-house and patios.  We will continue to have a great selection of Succulents, Air Plants and Garden Art !

A note about our blogspot:  As we head into summer, we will be revamping our Blogspot but it's still a good place to check into every week for our goings on. Remember, you do NOT have to "register" at the blogspot to follow us, just put it in your "favorite places" to visit each week, and you do not have to register in order to email or phone us.  We want to evolve our blogspot into a regular website and we welcome any suggestions, ideas etc that you think would make it more fun for our readers.

so, let's Jump into June and just keep having some gardening fun !

As always, Mitch and I thank you for your support, we would not still be here if it weren't for you !!
