Wittia amazonica UPDATE and Market July 25th

Greetings all !

As you know, market day was cancelled last week and it turned out to be a non-rainy day despite the forecast, so going forward, barring a hurricane, we will be at market !

Saturday Morning Summer Market
Williams Park, downtown St. Pete
Saturday 9am - 1pm




A note for all of you who are interested in the Wittia amazonica cuttings:  We apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience. We had some challenges around the nursery this past week that took priority away from setting up our mailing and Paypal procedures.

By early next week, we should have all of this finally in place. Meanwhile, wanted to share a pic of the cuttings that we have. We had a huge response about these and are hoping we have enough to cover every one's wishes.

We are also hoping that we will have small rooted plants available too, for those who inquired.

We will be emailing everyone individually who has inquired about receiving these, with all the details. Thanks again for your patience with our little nursery!

Meanwhile, we thought we would share some pics of plants blooming around the house this week, many of them rare, some more common, but just as beautiful, we hope you enjoy !  At the end of the pics, we have updated our availability list.
