Held at Neem Tree Farms, 602 Ronele Drive, Brandon, 33511 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5. 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!)

Everglade Tomato (limited quantities)

Yellow plumeria (just one)

Blooming aloe

Ginko trees

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

Dwarf Sansevieria

Native ruella

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

    Sansevieria (full sized)

    Yesterday-today-and tomorrow (also limited)

    Candlestick senna — more than you can count.

    False roselle, thousands and thousands ready to transplant!

       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!


    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)



Tropical milkweed

    Gallardia (blanketflower)


Seminole pumpkin

Parsley & Dill — plant extras for swallowtail butterflies!

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

Bachelor’s Button, another magnet flower that reseeds freely


  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

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


    Bolivian sunflower

Ever-bearing mulberry — great fun for kids and birds
