May 6, 2017 - Saturday - 10:00am - 2:00pm pm - Spring Plant Sale
- Houston Avenue, Branford, FL  32008

Mark your calendar to come by this year’s sale!  There will be a nice assortment of wildflowers, grasses, perennials, vines, shrubs and trees, in sizes starting with 4” pots.  All plants are locally grown REAL FLORIDA NATIVES that are suited to our particular area.  

Make a list of the plants you want for your yard and come shopping at our sale.  There will be spring and fall bloomers, trees for shade, shrubs for greenery, bird and butterfly attractors and more.  There are too many to mention, but here’s just a FEW that will be available for you to choose from:   Purple Coneflower,  Sunshine Mimosa, Wild Petunia, Carolina Jessamine, Oakleaf Hydrangea, Shumard Oak, Spiderlilly, Scarlet Hibiscus, Sugarberry, Redbud, Softhair Coneflower and Coontie.

The new location for this year’s Plant Sale is one block north of US 27 (right behind North Florida Pharmacy).  It’s a nice city block with lots of space and big trees for shade.  Be sure to check it out.
