Our edible plant nursery has been growing and sourcing high quality vegetable, tropical fruit, culinary herb & spice plants for Miami residence for more than 10 years. We use all OMRI certified inputs in our seedlings (potting mix, fertilizers & pesticides) however we are not certified organic.

We pride ourselves on our diverse selection of varieties ranging from easy to grow classics like kale and tomatoes to hard to find rare plants like black pepper vine and klip dagga. We take the utmost care to keep our plants healthy and we use living soil that contains fungal and microbial inoculants and locally made compost.

Please note we have changed our opening hours for 2024 and we are no longer open every weekend. Check our opening dates below or subscribe to our calendar.

The beauty of summer gardening extends far into the fruit realm in our lush tropical climate. You'll need to be just a bit more patient for fruit crops, although there is a juicy list of crops we can grow that will bear fruit within one year. Our favorites are bananas and plantains which will require a large space, but can also serve a double purpose if you plant them in a circle to create what is known as a "banana circle". Banana circles are commonly used in Permaculture design and food forest designs as a composting system. Some of the other one-year fruit crops we like to recommend are pineapples, papayas, passionfruit, Barbados cherry, mulberry, guava and starfruit.

Summer isn't just for fruit though, we can also grow herbs, spices, medicinals, greens and some heat tolerant vegetables. Check out our selection of season appropriate plants for your home garden for a good idea of what you can plant for summer. Going with the flow of the seasons, instead of fighting them, is the easiest way to enjoy gardening and experience success. If you haven't heard of some of the plants we suggest for summer, thats understandable and very normal. Many of our more humidity tolerant varieties aren't well known in America but they are incredibly popular sources of food in their countries of origin like Thailand, Suriname, Laos, and Australia.
