Our edible plant nursery is in Little Haiti, on land generously provided by Earth n' Us Farms. One of our main goals for this space is making it very accessible to the public; its where we host propagation workshops, multiple seasonal plant sales and informative tours and lectures. It is located at 115 NE 76th Street, Miami FL 33138 and open by appointment only, please email us to arrange a visit.
When planning and planting your garden don't forget that South Florida's growing seasons are reversed; traditional summer crops like radishes, tomatoes, carrots, corn, green beans are not grown during the summer but rather, in the cooler winter months. Our inventory at the nursery reflects our unique changing seasons. During the summer we focus on tropical fruit and edible unusual perennials and come fall we encourage the planting of traditional western european veggie crops like tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, greens, and hardy mediterranean herbs.
In May we transitioned into Summer season plants starting with our large Summer Tropical Plant Sale on May 6th and 7th. We now have very limited stock available. Below is a list of plants we may have available; if you're interested in purchasing plants email us to see if we have what you want and we can make an appointment accordingly.
April, May and June are great months to plant fruit trees, so that they benefit from the heavy rains of summer during their early life, when they need extra water to promote healthy growth. You would be amazed by how easily and quickly your bananas and other tropical fruit trees grow during the hot and wet summer months.
If you are interested in ordering specific plants, placing a custom order, or in having your garden maintained or replanted, send us an email! Gardening services are totally up our alley, we can schedule a site visit or consultation or you can come to the nursery and learn about different plants that you can grow in your own back yard that we can help you plant or maintain. We also offer larger quantities of plants for sale at wholesale prices by order. If you have a larger garden or plant project and at least 3 weeks notice we can grow custom quantities and varieties just for you, which is a great option for saving money and growing lots of food.
