Come to the sale and you can see for yourself, after all you said that you “would LOVE to meet me” you can do both at the same time. It would be great to meet you; I’ve heard so many wonderful things about you, it would be an honor. You will have a great time; there are several vendors that offer Palms and Cycads (wild collected seed) that you can’t find other places. It’s always nice to see what great plants that others are quietly selling for great prices. There isn’t a lot of fanfare at our sale just great plants at great prices in a wonderful setting, have you been to Mounts Botanical Garden lately? Don’t forget your camera!!

Maybe some cold hardy palms that can be grown in the great white tundra of Vero Beach perhaps?

Yes there will be some cold hardy palms. Don’t forget that many of the rare Cycads are very cold hardy, and some very nice Cycads will be there!

Thanks to everyone that came out this weekend. We had great sale, it was the best sale we’ve had in years! Not only did we sell a lot, but the traffic that came thru was amazing!!! The only complaint that I heard about the sale from vendors was, that they didn’t bring enough plants.
