Plant Availability List now available June 25, 2015!







Summer has been a busy time for us and in between rain drops, we have been gathering info to finally be able to have a plant availability list for everyone, that will be updated weekly ! In the list you will find not only rare specimens, but many common variety edibles and butterfly friendly plants that we carry on an on-going basis.

In addition to the Availability list here, Mitch has many other rare plant specimens, too many to list, that he only has a few of, which are available for sale, but you must visit us to see !

Also,  we specialize in 2 other areas, both of which we bring a wide variety to market each week, as well as, they are available for purchase when you visit us.

Tillandsias (Air Plants) - We always have a great variety of Tillys from Central and South America - all different sizes and prices go from $3 up $60 depending on their size and the specimen variety. 

Succulents - This group of plants has become very popular for their ease of growing and the need for very limited watering.  We carry a wide variety of types, colors and textures, and the ones we have are specimens we have found that will do best over the long run.   We have them available in 3, 4 + 6inch pots, as well as hanging baskets.  Typically, prices run from $3 - $25.

Remember, you can find us at St. Pete Saturday Morning Summer Market at Williams Park each Saturday from 9am to 1pm, and if you can't make market, give us a call or email to come visit us !
