Open Greenhouse, Nov. 3
It’s finally cool enough to Florida for us to look forward to spending the day outside! Open greenhouse and “yarden” are Nov. 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Of course, we’ll have lots of neemy stuff for sale but we have tons of free plants too, plus as much mulch as you care to carry away and bamboo you can cut down for plant stakes. Jim Shaw will be back demonstrating how to make bio-char too.
Free stuff includes:
- One giant beautyberry bush in a five-gallon pot (please bring your own pot though) and several you-digs that birds planted for us.
- Milkweed seedlings, just now poking their heads out of the ground.
- Limited quantity of peanut butter tree, originally given to me by Tanja and a highlight of almost every kid’s trip here!
- Daikon radish — we had such great germination it really needs to be thinned
- Lemongrass (lots and lots, please take some or I’ll have to kill it!)
- Candlestick senna plants and seeds
- False roselle, thousands and thousands ready to transplant!
- Native porterweed (ground cover)
- Clerodendrum (pagoda or bleeding heart)
- Naturalized periwinkles (aka vinca)
- Wild pineapple (very prickly, bring protective clothing)
- One of my personal favorites: fire bush
- Coral porterweed
- Bush morning glory
- Sweet almond
- Golden dewdrop
- Rangoon creeper
- Ever-bearing mulberry
- Chaste tree
- Rangoon creeper
Seeds (some you pick, some in cute little bags and others in bulk)
- Everglade tomatoes
- Beach morning glory
- Daikon radish (really a winter crop but definitely one of the most attractive vegetables we grow).
- Seminole pumpkin
- Dwarf yellow poinciana
- Parsley and dill for people or swallowtail butterfly caterpillars
- Small quantities of other seeds from previous events, including some you’ve heard of, like kale, and some so exotic I’m not sure what they are!
Plus you never know what somebody will bring to swap (but if you don’t have anything, that’s cool too. We all started off where you are!)
