"Many of these are in very short supply, so act fast if you find something you like!" - Vikki Carter, Nursery Manager

Each week, we walk through the nursery with a clipboard in hands, looking for the best we have to offer.  All of the plants listed here are "prime", ready to succeed in your garden.  In some cases they are just coming into bloom.  Or they may be at the perfect stage to transplant.  Or the seasonal foliage color may be at its peak.

In any case, the list changes every week, so check back for the latest and greatest from Flowers by the Sea.
