Nov. 2, 2019, Free Plant List

 In General

Held at Neem Tree Farms, 602 Ronele Drive, Brandon, 33511 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2. If you can’t make it that day, we do Open Gardens most first Saturdays except for holiday weekends.

Plants in pots (limited quantities, swaps expected!)

Bachelor’s button — new this swap!

Cucumbers — Marketplace 76 and tasty little lemon cukes (I planted too many seeds for my garden)

Seminole pumpkin — bring a large container to take home. They were planted for Tampa Bay Harvest before I knew we had voracious rabbits…

Two kinds of Florida lettuce, also new

One large moringa, three seedlings

Native ruella

Cuban oregano

Everglade Tomato (limited quantities)

Yellow plumeria (just one)

Ginko trees

Milkweed (tropical for now, but native seeds are starting to come up!)

Dwarf Sansevieria

Native violets

You dig:

Papaya trees that fell over in all the rain we had this summer. They’re amazing, fruiting literally on the ground. They transplant well.

Elderberry (must be planted ASAP, has very shallow roots, limited quantities)

Surinam cherry

Turmeric

    Sansevieria (full sized)

    Yesterday-today-and tomorrow (also limited)

    Candlestick senna — more than you can count.

    False roselle, hundreds ready to transplant before they set seeds!

       Clerodendron (pagoda and bleeding heart)

    Native palmetto that just popped up in the wrong spot…

    Naturalized periwinkles (aka vinca)

Chenille plants

Monkey Grass

    Wild pineapple (very prickly, bring protective clothing!

Seeds: 

A wide selection of vegetable seeds shared at the last event by a generous garderner

Peanut butter tree — fruit is ripening now so you can try one and then take the seed home

Passion flower — fresh seeds from the most prolific vine I’ve ever seen

Daikon Radish (mooli)

Lemongrass

Moringa  

Tropical milkweed

    Gallardia (blanketflower)

    Cosmos

Seminole pumpkin

Parsley & Dill — plant extras for swallowtail butterflies!

Vitex — spectacular purple flowers that are magnets for butterflies and bees

Chinese pumpkin

Pink tabebuia

Nasturtiums

    Cuttings:

  Moringa — a tree fell over in the rain and it’s growing on the ground too. Roots very easily from hardwood cuttings

Firebush — probably my favorite plant because it’s native and blooms year-round (as long as we don’t get a freeze), attracting bees, butterflies, bird and even hummingbirds

Coral porterweed, attracts bees and hummingbirds

Orchid cactus

    Red and purple firespike — another hummingbird favorite that blooms all winter when they’re most likely to be hanging out in Florida

    Rangoon creeper — the only thing we grow that isn’t food for people or wildlife, but you’ll understand when you smell it!

  Cuban oregano (already rooted)

Bush morning glory

    Cuban buttercup (tunera)

Golden dewdrop

       Vitex

    Bolivian sunflower

Ever-bearing mulberry — great fun for kids and birds
