This garden was the life work of one of the pioneers in the cultivation of exotic plants. The property has a new owner who loves and appreciates the plants but will be thinning out the collection. Most everything is for sale. Palms and cycads will be flagged with numbers that match the price lists below. Also available for sale are platyceriums and bromeliads. Due to the vastness of the garden, and the size of the plants, especially the palms, there will not be individual photos of each plant. The photos below are general shots in the garden to give an idea of the variety of material that is available.
PLEASE RSVP TO PALM AND CYCAD EXCHANGE EITHER BY EMAIL OR PHONE IF YOU WISH TO ATTEND THE EVENT. THESE PEOPLE WILL BE GIVEN THE ADDRESS VIA EMAIL THE SATURDAY BEFORE THE SALE ON SUNDAY.
