Kanapaha Plant Show - This Weekend! 9AM - 5PM, Saturday and Sunday

On Saturday I'll joining Dave Taylor from Taylor Gardens Nursery at their plant booth at the annual Kanapaha Plant Show.

Admission to Kanapaha is ususally a few dollars per person... but for this event, it's free!

I love Kanapaha Gardens - it's unbelievable. You'll see plants there that you've only read about in books.

As for the show, here's the write-up from Kanapaha:


Fall Plant Sale, Open House, and Orchid Show: October 25 & 26 (9am - 5pm) 2014*

Each October, Kanapaha Botanical Gardens holds an Open House & Fall Plant Sale, inviting visitors to see the facility ADMISSION FREE. Kanapaha Botanical Gardens formally opened to the public in October of 1987 and the Open House is a means of celebrating our 'birthday.' In addition to viewing the botanical gardens, approximately 40 booths will be set up selling a wide variety of plants. The American Orchid Society's judged orchid show will coincide with the Fall Plant Sale and will take place inside Kanapaha's entrance building. Pets are not allowed at these festivals.


The Taylors have a LOT of good nitrogen-fixing and insectary plants at their booth, and we'll also be bringing fruit and nut trees, plus rare perennial edibles to the show.

It's worth showing up just to meet Dave. As well as being a white African-American, he's one of the most generous guys I know. He's also hilarious and completely NOT politically correct.

If we don't manage to get kicked out for insulting some soy-eating limp-wristed Gainesvillian... I'd be surprised.

I'll be at church on Sunday so I won't be there in the morning, but I will be there all day on Saturday.

Come check out our great plants - look for Taylor Gardens Nursery!

So I've been dying to get a Gainesville Epic fig, but I can't ever get to Ocala on Thursdays. Will you have one or two of those along with you?
