Let’s start with what’s blooming here and grows easily from cuttings now that spring is here!

Chinese hat

Flowering maple

Firespike, red and purple

Brazilian red cloak

Sweet almond

Native firebush, including some with fresh seeds

Ever-bearing mulberry, covered in flowers and fresh fruit

Coral porterwood, not native but not as invasive as the purple and it’s a magnet for hummingbirds

And other cool stuff!

Are you ready for tomato season? Pick up Everglades, cherries, Romas and beefsteak plants, in full flower and fruit!

We have plenty of mulch and top soil to share, tons of bamboo that make great plant stakes, stacks of buckets for planting or storage, and a limited number of pallets.
