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.

Are you looking to get any fruit trees or other plants for the warmer time of year as a gift for your mom? If so, you might want to check out our Mother’s Day Sale!

This will be happening this Saturday 5/11 from 10am-3pm at our nursery located in Miami’s Horse Country.
