Hi there! It’s a bit nippy this morning…48 degrees at my house. I’m not a cold weather person, but I guess it does sorta get more people in the holiday mood. I’m one of those people who enjoy wearing shorts and flip-flops on Christmas day. That’s why I live in Central Florida. lol
Well, handmade bows and fresh wreaths have arrived at the Garden Shop. The wreaths are large and smell wonderful. They’re $24.99 each. The bows are beautiful and would be perfect either on your wreath or on Christmas presents or for many other Christmas decorating uses. The bows are $4.99 each.
Don’t forget that our Orchid Seminar is Saturday, December 15, from 1:00 – 3:00. It’s free. Bring something to sit on.
Good morning! Hope your Thanksgiving Day was as wonderful as mine was.
As everyone knows, it’s the day after Turkey Day…so it must be Sale Day. I’m not a fan of the term “Black Friday” so I’m having a “Digging in the Dirt Holiday Sale.” Everything in the nursery and in the Garden Shop is 20% off the regular prices unless marked differently.
The only exception to the Sale are the Poinsettias. Prices for them are $4.99 for 6″ Poinsettias and $2.99 for 4-1/2″ Poinsettias. I have red, white, and pink in stock.
Some of the items marked differently are:
Mums are 40% off of $5.50 and $2.99
Select Annuals are 75% off. Regular price of .99¢/each is now .25¢/each
Select Hanging Baskets are 40% off of $11.99 and $19.99
All 1-gallon Lantana is 40% off of $3.99
It’s a beautiful day, so come get some color for your garden.
Don’t you just hate it when you buy a beautiful orchid in full bloom, get it home, then can’t get it to bloom ever again no matter what you do? Yeah, that’s just no fun. Well, December’s seminar is just for you: the topic is how to grow orchids. Mr. John Hicks of the Volusia County Orchid Society is our guest speaker. He will help us learn that orchid growing is actually easy and that everyone can do it.

Why is it when we think of Fall color we think of pansies, and snapdragons, and mums, and all those other cool season annuals? The other day a customer asked me for suggestions for plants that are flowering this time of the year, and those plants were the first ones that popped out of my mouth. But when Gibbs and I did our nursery walkabout this morning I really took a look around to see what’s blooming. And I was pretty surprised. Now I’m not talking about plants just delivered from my suppliers…I’m talking about plants I’ve had here for awhile. I think we get somewhat used to certain plants being reliable bloomers that we forget how good they are at blooming. Well, guess what? I found 34 plants that were still blooming their little hearts out and looking gorgeous. Here are glamour shots of those 34 plants that I’ll make sure to add to my “Fall color” list.
In my personal garden these guys are still blooming: Night Blooming Jasmine, Tropical Hibiscus, Dipladena, Homestead Purple Verbena, Bleeding Heart Vine, Sweet Almond Bush, and Banana Shrub.
What do you have blooming in your garden that we can include in this list?
It’s an absolutely gorgeous day for our Rose Seminar: 77 degrees and clear skies. Man, can’t get much better than that.

The Seminar is from 1:00 – 3:00, is free, and is open to anyone and everyone. Can’t wait to see you here!
