Celebrating Valentines Day at Markets this weekend

Greetings all, you will find Mitch Armstrong Nursery at 2 events this weekend:

First, we will be at our homebase of the Saturday Morning Market, downtown St. Pete, on Saturday from 9am-2pm.

On Sunday, we will be participating with the Sunday Morning Market at Safety Harbor market.  Also, that day at Safety Harbor, the "Shabby Chic" Pop Up Market will be all along Main Street right next to the Park and gazebo area.  So you will have hundreds of vendors to visit and check out their products ! Because of the 2 events, the markets hours will be extended - see below for their advertisement:

Tampa Bays most unique shopping event the Shabby Chic Vintage Market & Artisan Day returns to Safety Harbor on Main Street on February 11, 2018. 10am-4pm. There'll be DIY Workshops, Paint Demos, and 100+ artisans. Items offered will be Shabby Chic Items, Plants & Yard Art, Home Decor, vintage & antiques and more! 
Free admission and free parking

So, this weekend at both Markets, you can find some beautiful Valentines Gifts for yourselves and those you cherish around you. It is warming up fast in our area and the plants are all doing beautifully.

This "Red Success" dwarf Anthurium is one of our most popular sellers, and it's the perfect color for Valentines Day.

A dwarf, from Holland, only grows to about 12 inches. Loving low light, it's the perfect plant for homes/offices or your porches, patios and shade gardens.

Another great selection for Valentines Day is the beautiful Calla Lily.  Just like the Anthurium above, it loves the same conditions.

For your landscape needs, the Bougainvilleas are thriving.  They are on trellises that give them support - plant them on their own, or plant the trellised pot next to a fence or arbor.  Loving Sun and warmth, they give great color all year long.

We have striking Epidendrum Orchids in stock - this is one of the easiest orchids to grown, whether in-ground, or in pots.

We have them in 1 & 3 gallon containers and they are all loaded with blooms and buds.

One of the few orchids that is sun-loving, its a great all around plant.

This Orange Paintbrush (Birbidgea) specimen is a darling - the bright orange flowers slowly open, ending with a spectacular display.  Loving bright shade, this can be grown in shade gardens, or as a house plant.

Duranta, aka, Sapphire Showers,  is a winner in any garden.  A butterfly lover, it blooms on and off all year round and is very hardy.  You can grow it as a smallish tree, or bush, and it makes a beautiful display against fences and arbors.

We are happily stocked back up with a wide selection of Mini Succulents and Cacti.  You will only find just a variety with us and remember, every single plant is hand picked by myself and Mitch, for its beauty and healthiness.

We are fully in stock with a wide selection of Tilandsias (Air Plants) and our super helper, Susan is right on the spot to inform you about it's growth habits and care.

The Air Plants we have, again, are hand picked. These plants come from Central and South America, and offer bright blooming color all the time. We have a great selection of shells that you can "house" them in.

All these, and much much more, are at Markets this weekend so we hope you can come out to see them - It is going to gorgeous weather, and a good time to get fresh air and enjoy the community around you !
