The 22nd Annual Fall Plant Extravaganza!

October 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th – 9th, 10th, 11th - 2020

 

The upcoming sale is going forward, mostly as usual... with some exceptions and additions. As mentioned on the flyer, all pandemic related conditions will be enforced, including social distancing and the use of masks. Masks will be needed to enter the nursery and need to be worn throughout the sales area. No exceptions. There will be hand sanitizer provided around the sales area, not sure where yet. The Thursday before the first weekend has been turned into a sale day.* This has been done to potentially alleviate the traffic flow on Friday and keep the sales area more spaced out. Certain other elements have been implemented to help keep people spaced apart. More changes and provisions can be made at any time.

The Searle Brothers Plant Extravaganzas have become exciting plant events and a great way for IPS Members, Palmtalk Forum Members and fellow tropical palm & plant enthusiasts to come together and meet in the South Florida area. The events have always been a great way to spend a weekend (or two) in the company of those who share your passion for gardening and collecting tropical ornamental plants. To describe the events as just mere plant sales would be an understatement; as they have become much more in the form of social events for our friends and family. Forum members, friends and fellow plant collectors have all come from far and wide to attend and we are continuously surprised in the distances they will cover to share in the event. In regards to the following details, I have tried to include as much information about the upcoming Fall 'Ganza as I could. If you see something that you know should be included and it is absent, please post the idea(s) here or contact me, Jeff Searle or the nursery with the methods listed below and let us know...

Directions:
The map below is a general street map of western Broward County, Florida showing the location of the nursery (Palm tree symbol). Using Sheridan Street would be the best option to get to the nursery if you are heading west through the area. If you are taking the Florida Turnpike, use the Griffin Road exit from the north, or the Pines Blvd. exit from the south. If you need any additional directions, please contact the nursery, Jeff or I (Ryan). When you get close to the nursery, look for large power lines as they run east and west above the nursery. Parking is along the shoulder of 172nd Avenue in front of, and down the street from, the nursery entrance. If you intend to arrive early before sunrise (and many usually do) be wary of hard-to-see speed bumps along 172nd Avenue and there is a possibility of a speed trap as well. There has been considerable construction along I-75 so the exits near Sheridan Street and Griffin Road have been changed slightly compared to previous years. Express lanes have been added to I-75, they may or may not make the trip faster.

Plant Availability, Photo Requests:

For plant availability including a copy of the ever-growing list of palms, cycads and other information regarding which plants and species will be for sale, please contact the nursery, Jeff Searle or I (Ryan). The plant selection process has already begun and will continue right up to the last day before the first morning of the Extravaganza, (sometimes even on the mornings of each event day if the need applies.) The sale lists for palms, cycads and crotons will be made available as soon as they are completed. Special selections might be pulled for sale as requests, but only if the plants are available. There will be certain species, varieties and cultivars that will only be available in limited quantities. These rarer plants will likely sell out quickly in the morning hours, so be sure to arrange your wish list accordingly. Plant groups may have been moved around the sales area, relocated or added in with others. In order to speed your way to your favorite plants please ask a nearby staff member or volunteer as to their location.

Each plant will be priced with either a lavender tag or will have the price written on the pot and/or on the display card or sign.


Featured Plant Groups:
The plant selection at the Extravaganza is constantly growing and changing. The largest and most diverse group is by far the Palms, of which there will be over 300 species available in various different sizes. The plant selection will include genera, species, hybrids, cultivars and varieties representing various plant families from around the world. A large number of Croton cultivars will also be on display as their demand has increased production to new levels. There are always new plants to be added to the selection, as the demand for new, exotic and unusual material remains constant...

Palms:

Aroids: - Bromeliads:

Butterfly Plants: - Cycads: - Crotons:

Cordylines: - Ferns: - Orchids:

Heliconias, Gingers and other Zingiber order members: -

Tropical Flowering Trees, Shrubs, & Vines:

Succulents & Sansevierias:

Landscape Ornamentals: - Tropical Fruit Trees:

Rare and Unusual Exotic Species:

One-of-a-Kind and Hard-to-Find wonders of the plant world: - … and much more:
There is always a chance a newly cultivated & recently discovered species of tropical plant will make its way into the sales area.

 

The Sale Flyer:
The nursery will soon mail out sale flyers to everyone on our mailing list. If you are on the mailing list and do not receive one, please let Jeff or myself know. In addition, if you would like to be placed on the mailing list for future Extravaganza flyers, please send a message to Jeff or myself with your address.

Ganza_flyer_F20.thumb.jpg.e5bcbb063217db30e2e91950aab3e886.jpg

Plant Carts:
We do provide a limited number of carts for customers to use, but it is recommended that you bring your own plant shopping conveyance. The carts do go quickly in the morning of each day, soon after the gates open and during busy periods. During the day when they are returned from the holding area or from the parking lot, they are placed back on the concrete pad across from the register area or near the holding area along the main road.

Information and Invitation:

If you need any more details regarding plants, directions, or anything that I have not included above, feel free to contact the nursery, Jeff Searle or myself by the methods listed above. Feel free to post any messages, questions, etc. in this topic. Jeff Searle, I and all the family members and volunteers look forward to meeting everyone including new and familiar Palmtalk Forum members and IPS members at the upcoming Extravaganza. Be sure to find one of us and introduce yourself. You will be sure to find other Forum members at the event as well, possibly walking right past you down an aisle or grabbing for the same plant. The entire Searle family and the mass of volunteers will be waiting to help you find that perfect plant.

We hope to see you there!

Tropiflora has cancelled their fall open house sale, planned for late October I believe, so no Sarasota trip for now. If anything changes, I will mention it here or in another topic.

I might have to take some time off of work for this and stay with friends in the area so I can stop by! I’ve always missed the first few days because of work and I’m starting to get tired of it haha 

Any chance there will be some dypsis lastelliana available?

As of today, I have retrieved the plant lists for the Palms and Crotons. I will be processing them shortly and posting them here as soon as they are ready. I know Jeff has put a lot of time and effort into the lists and completed them as soon as possible. The first page is smeared with dried blood and the back page is covered with potting soil, if that says anything.

I will post them directly and include a booklet version posted as an attachment that may be printed if need be.

Yes, there should be some available, but of what size and price I do not know yet. They could also be of the 'Highland Mealybug' variety, which is a possibility as they are often intermixed. When I get more details I shall post herein.

The lists are ready, and as usual Crotons first...

The list contains 144 different and unique cultivars for the Fall 'Ganza. This is an average amount for the Fall event as the numbers hover around one-hundred fifty or so. I did have to enter about a dozen new names into my master Croton database just to process the list. This is a lot when compared to only a few names that I usually have to enter. Some of the names are described as Unknowns. They may not have an identity now, but they may receive one later. We may not know what they are, but they are definitely not something we already have. Take that for what it's worth. The entire list here, plus an attached copy following in the next post. The plants are now getting labeled and will either be priced with a lavender tag or will have the price written on the pot, in the case of small plants. A few of the cultivars are also classified as landscape material, and will be in that section with a price on the sign card. The vast majority of the Crotons are in three gallon pots. I would say the list is about complete, with a slight chance more will be added. Which is always possible.

Ditto... the same Croton list as above but as an attachment and screenshot.

I will not have printed booklet versions at the sale, so feel free to print out your own copy if you need one.

Thus enters the Palm & Cycad list...

The following list of Palms and Cycads is full with a lot of interesting taxa, numbering 365 at present. They are mostly species, with a few subspecies, varieties and hybrids. A couple 'spah's' (sp.) have been thrown in to make it more interesting. The taxa spans almost 500 different size groups, which is almost a record. Some species are represented by four or five sizes. Jeff had a lot of time to put into pulling plants and making the list, so it's almost finished, perhaps 98% complete. The plants are being tagged now, and will be priced with the iconic lavender tag. The selection along the sidewalk has been spaced out to make social distancing easier to achieve. Normally, the shadehouse sidewalk forms the borders of the sales area, but now the plants have been pushed outwards onto the ground cloth. The outer boundary will more than likely be the familiar yellow caution tape. An attached version of the list will be posted next.

... Any chance there will be some dypsis lastelliana available? 

Part two...

- Yes, we have a single specimen for sale and I found it. It is well-overgrown in a 7-gallon pot. It is $125.00 and really needs to go into the ground.

- The tables at the moment. Some odd an' end positioning still left to do, but most of the gallons and smaller plants are in place. Tables placed all the way off the sidewalk to create space.

- A few quick random shots down the sidewalk. Looks bigger with all the plants pushed off onto the ground cloth.

A few key notes in regards to the sale. Due to the pandemic and other factors certain things will be different during this 'Ganza:

 

- Social distancing and Mask requirement. - All the expected requirements for social distancing and the use of masks will be enforced. I could recommend multiple masks as they may get dirty easily in the heat and humidity. Sanitizer will be available, but you are welcome to bring your own as well. We spaced out areas as much as possible but extra care will be needed as we figure customers can easily lose track of where they are as they are browsing through the selection.

- No Checklist - I was not able to make my usual location and verification checklist. I will not be able to quickly locate a certain species along the sidewalk nor verify if a species or size has been pulled. We would have to look for it the old fashion way.

- Shadehouse Organization - Due to the lack of a checklist, some of plants in the shadehouse will be out of order. One of the functions of the checklist is to organize all the plants in the shadehouse into species groups so they share the same display card. I have been working on moving things around manually, but without a global view provided by the checklist, it's slow going. Some groups will not have a card present as it is in front of another group somewhere else along the sidewalk.

- Booklets - As I mentioned above, there will not be any sale booklets or sale sheets at the sale. The lists posted above can be printed out in different ways or just kept at the ready on your phone.

- Reduced Staff and Volunteers - The pandemic has made it difficult for the usual amount of volunteers to attend the sale as they would like to. They will not be on hand to answer questions with typical speed. Certain parts of the sales area will have reduced staff and volunteers and so it might take longer to get assistance in loading plants. Bring extra elbow grease if needed.

- No Food - No BBQ this time. Too difficult to work it into all the current guidelines. We will have drinks on hand, I believe.

- Rain - There will be an increased chance of rain during the first weekend. This isn't all-together different, but it has been forecast so don't forget your rain gear. I was foreseeing people crammed together under tents or in the barn with no spacing what-so-ever; so with more rain gear it should be able to keep things more spaced out.

 

I will post more notes if I think of anything or if it comes up tomorrow and/or during the week.

Second weekend starting tomorrow. I know Jeff had spent the last few days pulling plants, mostly trying to replace what had sold during the first weekend. The weather should be slightly better than what we experienced during the first four days last week, but still bring your rain gear. The notes posted above still apply.

In regards to messages asking about what plants may still be available, I will try to track them down tomorrow during the sale and have the info for Saturday.

I've been so swamped with work lately that I haven't been on here much and it also caused me to miss this sale. Needless to say I have bruises from kicking myself now because that palm was EXACTLY what I was looking for.

Being very busy at this time was a common trend during the sale. I talked with customers that attended the second weekend because they simply could not make the first, due to work and other conditions. I got a number of messages afterwards from those who missed both weekends. That D. lastelliana did go home with someone. I do not remember selling the palm myself, but I do remember placing a group of restocked palms in that spot.

      The 22nd Annual Fall Extravaganza
      October 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th - 9th, 10th, 11th - 2020
       
      The Few and Far Between - A Palm Sale During the Pandemic
      Unknowns. The unknown elements pertaining to having a plant sale during the pandemic created the most concern. We didn't know what the interest level would be, or if there would be any demand. I figured there would be at-least some need for landscape material, as there always is... as long as there is any urge for homeowners and gardeners to play in the dirt. As for the plant explorers, enthusiasts and collectors, I personally had no idea as to who might show up; and if they did, do they have their list or cart in hand, or would they just be browsing for eye candy? For those who may not know, South Florida has been hit especially hard by the pandemic. So to have both the desire for plants and the urge to travel during the age of Covid-19, is a particular combo.
      The nursery had put every pandemic-related safety measure into place. Signs for social distancing and mask usage, a different entrance pathway for customers entering the sales area, screens and safeguards throughout the checkout process and enough hand sanitizer to sink a ship. Hand washing stations were spaced around the sales area and cleaning materials were used to clean the bathrooms and high-volume surfaces after each use. All we needed then was customers. The 'Ganza was effected by other factors as well. Due to the pandemic, we were short on volunteers that often help during the sale days. These included not only those happy to load a trailer, but those with plant knowledge. To reduce movement through the sales area we had assigned locations during the event. I was positioned at the white tent in the main shadehouse. This factor, along with the intermittent rainfall, greatly reduced the amount of photos I took during the sale.
      Leading up to the sale, I was monitoring the online plant world as much as I could to try and get a feeling as to the 'mood' of plant people. I do this regularly, but I was trying to get an idea of how well the sale might be as a result. The usual amount of communication I had regarding the 'Ganza was way down and those communications I did have had represented a mix of moods, from low to high. I waited to see how this would correspond with customers attending the sale.
       
      Thursday, October 1st
      - 7:41AM - For the first time, the Extravaganza opens on a Thursday morning. This was done to try and maintain social distancing and to help alleviate the crowding that normally occurs on a Friday morning. It didn't work. Most everyone that could attend on a Friday, came Thursday. Plant fanatics follow the credo, 'If they can seek plant, they shall'. It was still early, with the sun fighting to rise among a cloudy sky. The rain was going to play a big part during this already unusual 'Ganza. I took a long gaze down the sidewalk while at the main shadehouse entrance, looking over the Palm selection and anything that might need attention; a fallen plant, a stray hose, etc. Looking to the left (B) the Croton selection was primed and ready for the oncoming onslaught. Hard to make out, but there were 144 different cultivars in there; available in varying amounts.

      - On the right, the Aroid tables were packed with plants of all sorts. (B) The side road had more than its fair share of plant material ready for customers. In addition to the usual spread of Cordylines and ground orchids, there were unusual flowering shrubs, trees and vines. A botanical oddity or two was mixed in for good measure.

      - 7:43AM - Under the barn, the Orchids were on display. They were arranged in their groups, most if not all had a photo of the bloom, if they were not in bloom themselves.

      - 7:47AM - Red leaves everywhere. For some reason, the timing mechanism that controls the newly emerging leaves throughout the Chambeyronia macrocarpa population was in sync. In behind the sidewalk and yellow caution tape, almost every specimen of C. macrocarpa, whether it was a single or multiple, had a new red leaf. It was cool and freaky at the same time. I was not the only one to notice, as the showy leaves waved down customers throughout the first weekend, selling many of the plants in the process.
