Mother’s Day Sale this Saturday!

The Ready-to-Grow Garden Center was visited by Mother Nature on Monday in the form of a tornado. While there was much structural damage to our nursery, most of our plants are ok and ready for a home, and also could be perfect gift’s for Mother’s Day!

The cool weather that allows south Floridians to grow many of our favorite veggies has left and the more tropical hot and humid weather has arrived. While many annual veggie gardens are winding down over the next month, we are entering a great time of year to plant tropical fruit trees and other heat tolerant plants.

Want to grow your own tropical fruit trees? We have lots of great varieties in stock!

The cool weather that allows south Floridians to grow many of our favorite veggies is leaving and the more tropical hot and humid weather is around the corner.  While many annual veggie gardens will be winding down over the next couple months, we are entering a great time of year to plant tropical fruits!  

Yes, fruit trees can be long-lived and require varying amounts of space in a landscape.  Many large growing species can be kept small by selecting varieties that don’t grow as large and/or through regular pruning.

If any of you would like to grow your own fruit we can help!  Our nursery is well stocked will lots of different species and varieties.  For example, we have 20 varieties of mangoes that taste amazing, most of which don’t grow into giant trees!  To purchase our nursery is open by appointment but we can also deliver.  If you’d like help planting them and/or caring for them, we can help with that too!
