Sunset magazine recently ran an article on spooky plants for Halloween. At the wholesale center we carry several of these plants including venus fly traps, nepenthes, and the crested euphorbia pictured to the left. They make terrific Halloween decorations and are fun plants.
Maybe not as scary as the Euphorbia, but definitely different in their own right are neoregelias. We recently brought in several varieties of these wonderful plants that can be used in arrangements, as house plants, or whatever your imagination can conjure. We have 4” and 6” plants for $6.95 and $12.95 respectively.
Rocket Farms is proud to harvest these incredible orchids this week. Their deep, rich color is absolutely amazing and the glossy shine is all natural. This awesome color makes a great Halloween centerpiece! We have a limited quantity available at the Wholesale Center so please come check them out soon.
The spring bulk bulbs are here and are ready for planting. We received everything on our bulb availability list, but they are already selling quickly.

Recently we received some new pots we thought would make the perfect addition to our holiday line up of hardgoods. We brought them in because they make a great fit for our always popular Phalaenopsis orchids and holiday trees.
