Mark was found yesterday in his home with no heartbeat. Unfortunately, Mark just could not fight off his need for painkillers and drugs. Very sad.

Mark had one of the nicest retail and wholesale nurseries in all of south Florida. He was known to many and will be missed.

Didn't know him, but this kind of story is always sad.

Sorry news. Black Olive's retail area (Living Color) has really nice garden idea displays, rather then just rows & rows of plants.

Just browsing this forum - and found this - I had no idea - but the nursery is still lovely - it's one of my "go to" places every time I go to Florida.
