It is impossible for us to thank everyone who has emailed, texted and left voice mails. Reaching out to us has meant so much.
Hurricane Irma was quite destructive to us, but we are safe. As our house is 26 feet above sea level we knew it would be a wind event for us and did not evacuate. We were struck by the northeast corner of the eye wall which is the most destructive, we had sustained winds of 130 mph and gusts over 160 mph. We had removed all the poly from our greenhouses so three received no damage but the fourth greenhouse had a top of a pine tree thrown on it and half of the frame will need to be replaced. We moved our most valuable plants inside and about 25% of the plants that bore the force of the wind were lost. Our house was struck by lightning so this caused more damage. Almost every pine tree on our three acres has been destroyed. It looks as though we live in a war zone.
Most importantly we are safe and will not let Irma beat us, we will come back stronger than ever. Our inventory on our web site will be incorrect for a while, but please rest assured if you place an order and we can not send exactly what you ordered, we will issue a refund for the plants that are unavailable and not send replacements. The inventory is only out of touch on the $10 and under plants as that category of plants did indeed bare the full force of Hurricane Irma.
We will be updating, today September 21.
