we just got back from jamaica and have been bitten by the "tropical" bug.
port antonio, jamaica has to be one of the greenest spots on earth.
anyway, tampa is a zone 9-10 and just driving around our neighborhood i see
a lot of exotic tropicals thriving. does anyone know a reputable nursery in
the area that specializes on this type of plant?
Which type of plant is that? Don't know if any of these places
will help you out, but perhaps you could give them a call and
question them about exotic tropical plants...
The Willow Tree Nursery is worth a visit just to see the large
tree they have in the middle of the nursery, it's located on 49th
Street just north of 38th Avenue North in Saint Petersburg,
not much farther north past the Biff Burger hangout where people
drive and show off their older model cars. Not sure they fully
work a full line of exotic tropicals, but they do have some exotic
Anyways, best to call around I think and ask about a specific
tropical plant (palm trees, pineapple types with fruit, mango
trees, coconut palms, etc).
I know the Willow Tree Nursery in Saint Petersburg sells some
lemon trees and other fruit trees, but you'll probably find something
closer to you in the Tampa with a few phone calls that sells the
same sort of plant.
Hope this helps.
