Feels like Spring at the markets, and getting ready for shows !

Well, the nursery and our gardens are alive and looks like we are welcoming Spring in early.

The plants have been alive with butterflies and bees doing their things and they especially love this Sweet Almond bush at left.

This weekend, we have markets both Sat. and Sunday.

Saturday, Feb. 25th, we will be at Saturday Morning Market, downtown St. Pete, -Market hours 9am-2pm,

Sunday, we will be at the regularly last Sunday of the Month Market, at Thrill Hill Market, at the Old Southeast Market place, in the historic Southeast part of St. Pete at 1700 3rd street South. Market Hours Noon-5pm.

We have a huge new selection of Mini Succulents, as well exotic tropical Calatheas and specimens for house, office, patios and shade gardens.

One of our customer's favorites, is this Pink quill Bromeliad that produces purple flowers that smell like Cinnamon.  In a mini pot, they are perfect for windowsills, offices, homes, out on your porch, or stick them in shade trees and watch them thrive.

This time of year is a great time to get some Citronella geraniums established in your gardens and porches to help keep the skeeters away. With a deep lemony scent, they also produce a small pink flower in the Spring and summertime.

We are also back in stock with tons of gorgeous Spearmint, Lavender, Edible Herbs, Rosemary galore, tomato starter plants and even some specialty lettuces.

Everyone loves something different and the "Pitcher plant" above is certainly unique.

The Tibouchinas are starting to bloom early and we have great starter babies for you to enjoy.

Everyone loves the practically thornless Miss Pixie Bougainvillea and we still have some nice ones in stock.

If you are looking for Butterfly friendly plants for your garden, look no further, we have tons of great perennials, bushes and vines that are guaranteed to attract bees and butterflies.

Spring Botanical Shows will be starting soon, and here's our line up so far - make a note in your calendars about these great events. As they closer, we will be talking more about them.
