Goodbye Rainy July, Hello Sunny August, we hope !

Greetings all in these last few days of July.  I borrowed this pic from a posting on Facebook from our local weatherman, and we are sure that you can commiserate with that thought !

That being said, all of this rain has been mighty good for our gardens, although if you are like us, it means getting out and pruning more often with all the growth that is happening.

I don't think we can remember a rainier summer than what we have had here in Florida the last month, great for the plants, bad for business, as unfortunately it has caused our local market to be rained out the last 2 weeks, which is hard for us who depend on summer markets for our living !

But, we are hanging in there, and customers are welcome to visit us during the week to get your garden satisfaction.  Because of the recent flooding, we are keeping a majority of our stock up here in St. Pete and we have a yard full of gorgeous stuff at great summer prices.  Check out our updated Plant Availability List and please note, although prices are noted, there can be some flexibility on a lot of items so come on by and check it out.  Just email or give us a shout on the phone to set up a time.

You can reach us at :  marketannie@aol.com, or 727-742-9265. We are located in the N.E. area of St. Pete, so very convenient for everyone all over the county.

Wittia Amazonica cutting update:  We have emailed all the individuals that were wanting cuttings with info about mailing and prices.  We anticipate starting the mail out next week.
