Open Garden Tour & Plant Sale – This Saturday April 28, 2012 9am – 2pm

Our first tour of the year was a great success, and I have been contacted by many that were sorry to have missed it- so another garden tour & sale is scheduled for this coming Saturday, 4/28/12 from 9am to 2pm.

I plan on having some NEW tropical plants available at this tour that were not there last time.

Browse through the garden at your leisure, or follow along as a tour is given, discussing the plants and their care.

Of equal interest is the pool enclosure garden, which houses plants such as blooming Heliconia, Blue Ice Calathea, Anthurium, Costus Barbatus and Xanthosoma. Come see what does well under a screen enclosure and get some ideas for your own.

At the same time we will also be holding a casual plant sale- we have lots of Heliconia sprouting up now, and we also plan on having some beautiful full-sun bromeliads for sale.

I have alot of fully rooted (and currently blooming) Plumeria for sale. Some are 3-4 feet tall. Varieties include the very easy to grow/cold hardy very fragrant Aztec Gold, as well as the always awesome “Duke”
