 In News from the Greenhouse & "Yarden"

Open Gardens, April 6, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Neem Tree Farms, 602 Ronele Drive, Brandon, 33511

We love plant swaps! And this time we have a giant pile of really nice mulch from TECO! You’ll need to bring something to carry it home in if you want some though! (Actually, a bucket and a small trowel are good things to have just for the other plants on the list.)

And I keep forgetting to add bamboo to this list. We’ve got lots and lots to make stakes for whatever you’re growing – just watch to make sure it doesn’t sprout roots in a spot you don’t want it!

Plants in pots (limited quantities, swaps expected!)
