Calendar of Events

Dates are subject to change so please check back for updates Several have changed this year

If you are attending any of these events ask us to bring any of the items we have on our web site for you to view.  There is no obligation to buy what you request us to bring

 

We are packing plants anyway so we will be happy to bring items for you to examine.  We can not bring everything we sell.  So if you want to see something special, especially if it is not in bloom at that time, this is a good way to see them.  

 

Shows are always on weekends so if the dates are not Saturday and Sunday (except Englewood and Naples Botanical Gardens) it is a typing error.
