Botanistix does Seasonal!

For 14 years, I have resisted making seasonal Botanistix but after several people kept asking….well, I did them this year! Amaryllis and poinsettias especially do benefit from the Botanistix support stake. I enjoy doing new things so this was a fun. Unfortunately, they cannot be shipped because I have left them longer so they can…

Help SW Florida with Ian relief

Botanistix will donate 15% of the Oct/Nov sales to Collier Community Foundation’s Ian Relief fund. I like that the funds stay local and there are no administrative costs. If you are purchasing for holiday gifts, I will be happy to ship them out for you in December. Reach out to me with the details and…

Post Ian

Naples and SW Florida had a real shakeup with Ian, to say the least. Happy to report, I only had roof issues which can be fixed and yard/vegetation as was unavoidable in a storm that whipped us for 12+ hours. The winds were tireless…I gave Olive her relaxation pills at 6:30am and when we went to bed…

Happy September

The Friday tours are by reservation only and are No Charge to those lucky enough to attend. Fourty years ago Dr Ronald Stanley purchased 50…

These are the June projects I have been working on in the yard– I was gifted a large, mature Brassavola.   I chose a tree with the right light, then with panty hose, went to work.  I can see the tree from inside the house so when it’s in bloom I can really enjoy it.  …

April

The orchid gardens are in full bloom now. Even the large air plants on the trees are blooming. Considering all of the cool weather we had early on, it is amazing how great things look now. I consider this our version of Spring flowers! Many of you have taken advantage of the classes, so you…

Pearls are a Girls Best Friend

I recently found a vendor who wraps pearls in gold and adds tiny beads for more interest. There is a lot going on around these pearls! The pink gold pictured is a very versatile color. They look well with all color blooms and they’re so elegant. The owner also did the same with turquoise, so…

Onto New Things in the New Year

I had 2 fun surprises show up in the yard on Christmas weekend.  This beautiful amaryllis is blooming about 4 months early.  The blooming frangipani was just replanted about 3 weeks earlier but it receives more sun in its new location, so maybe thats why its blooming?  I try not to ask why and just…
