Tis the cooler season to plant cold-hardy trees and shrubs. Plant a native yard, not only as a gift to yourself this season, but as a gift to the birds, bees and butterflies.
Give something back, create a little habitat.

The Greenest Holiday Tree Sooo Far ... South

It's the greenest holiday tree Floridians can have this season - a locally grown, living, native, RED CEDAR.  To top it off, we are dressing them up in handmade recycled paper butterfly garland and origami stars for you. Keep this little tree close to your heart for the holidays or give someone else the gift that keeps on living. After the holidays plant it in your yard, donate it to your favorite local organization, give it to someone special (with the yard space) or return it to us. Red cedars, with their dense, evergreen foliage, are a favorite food, nesting and shelter tree for our native resident and migratory songbirds. Call the nursery before December 23rd, to order your table top decorated tree with free home delivery, $50. Or just the tree, $18.
