ANNUAL FREE GARDEN TOUR & SALE – SUNDAY SEPT 25TH, 2016

We have a date for the FREE once-a-year Exotica Tropicals Garden Tour in Melbourne Beach!

I have an open garden tour/sale but once a year and the date for 2016 is Sunday September 25th 2016 from 9:30 am to 1:00 PM

IF WEATHER IS BAD, WE WILL RESCHEDULE.

The self guided garden tour is free and I will be on hand to answer any questions about plants in the garden.  Some notable specimens include a large mature and flowering/fruiting Sausage Tree, large Rainbow Eucalyptus, flowering Ylang Ylang Trees, huge Philodendron giganteum, x Evansii and subincisum.  Many types of Palms, flowering Orchids, Anthurium, Cordyline, Heliconia and Ginger.

In addition to the Free Garden Tour- there will also be a unique selection of plants for sale- this will be a different selection of plant stock than is available at the nursery.  Plants available for sale include unusual Cordyline, some large specimens of Philodendron subincisum and giganteum,  as well as many other rare and unusual Philodendron and Monstera.  There will also be Heliconia, Gingers (including the elusive Belize Yellow Ginger, The new ‘Red Hybrid’ Costus Ginger, Indonesian Wax Ginger)  and many other interesting specimens.

In addition to our mature & fruiting Sausage Tree (Kigelia africana) on site- we will also have Sausage Trees for sale!

This year I have been making alot of redesigns and changes to the garden to facilitate a greater growing capacity- the jungle is not as regularly manicured as usual and there are plants absolutley everywhere- and most of them are for sale. Its a chance to see the garden in its “natural state”

WHAT’S NEW AT THE NURSERY-

Looking for awesome fragrance? – we have some Ylang Ylang (Chanel #5) Trees in stock, as well as the exotic TAHITIAN GARDENIA- both produce wonderfully fragrant flowers.

Speaking  fragrance, we also have a few of the very uncommon  Tabernaemontana crassa – this is a large leafed small tree that produces white curly pinwheel flowers with a tropical fragrance.

The nursery is packed with an entire array of  HELICONIAS- from the newly introduced Heliconia ‘Bali’ to the always popular large clawed Heliconia jacquinii. Other varieties include: Heliconia ‘Firebird’, Heliconia collinsiana, Heliconia ‘Tortuga’ Heliconia plagiotropa, and Heliconia rostrata ‘Hanging Lobster claw’

We are also fully stocked with rare Philodenrons, Monstera, Plumeria, and Ginger  as well as many other interesting and unusual specimens.

Stop in this week and check out the ever-changing selection! The nursery is open Wed-Sat 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM (til 1pm on Wednesdays)
