    Update:

    Some of the plants available during the upcoming sale will include, clivias (almost hardy), tamarind trees (not hardy, but wonderful), a few red gingers (hardy to -10C), and Podophyllum “Spotty Dotty” (zone 6).

    Hope to see you there!

    Yes, thank you.
    A good turn out and great weather

    There was a lot of interest in the shipment of palms and most were gone within the first hour (very good prices even for the common Trachycarpus fortune which were selling for only $55 at over 6ft in height). There were also lots of unusual hardy edibles such as pawpaws, citrus, olives, jujube and persimmons.
