Come to the sale and you can see for yourself, after all you said that you ďwould LOVE to meet meĒ you can do both at the same time. It would be great to meet you; Iíve 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 canít find other places. Itís always nice to see what great plants that others are quietly selling for great prices. There isnít 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? Donít forget your camera!!

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

We are loading up and looking forward to seeing all our old friends and meeting new friends this weekend. The weather should be much better than last fall. I'm sure that you can find something to add to your collection.

Thanks to everyone that came out this weekend. We had great sale, it was the best sale weíve 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 didnít bring enough plants.
