    The 17th Annual Fall Plant Extravaganza!

    October 2nd, 3rd, 4th - 9th, 10th, 11th - 2015

    The spring and fall Searle Brothers Plant Extravaganzas have become a great way for IPS Members, Forum Members and fellow tropical palm & plant enthusiasts to come together and meet in the South Florida area. The events have always been a great way to spend a weekend in the company of those who share your passion for gardening and collecting tropical ornamental plants. To describe the events as just mere plant sales would be an understatement; as they have become much more in the form of social events for our friends and family. Forum members, friends and fellow plant collectors have all come from far and wide to attend and we are continuously surprised in the distances they will cover to share in the event. In regards to the following details, I have tried to include as much information about the upcoming Fall 'Ganza as I can.If you see something that you need to know that is missing and should be added, please post the idea(s) here or contact me, Jeff Searle or the nursery with the methods listed below and let us know...

    Directions:
    Following the link below will show you a general street map of western Broward County, Florida showing the location of the nursery (Palm tree symbol). Using Sheridan Street would be the best option to get to the nursery if you are heading west through the area. If you are taking the Florida Turnpike, use the Griffin Road exit from the north, or the Pines Blvd. exit from the south. If you need any additional directions, please contact the nursery, Jeff or I (Ryan). When you get close to the nursery, look for large power lines as they run east and west above the nursery. Parking is along the shoulder of 172nd Avenue in front of, and down the street from, the nursery entrance. If you intend to arrive early before sunrise (and many usually do) be wary of hard-to-see speed bumps along 172nd Avenue and there is a possibility of a speed trap as well.

    Plant Availability, Photo Requests:
    For plant availability including a copy of the ever-growing list of palms, cycads and other information regarding which plants and species will be for sale, please contact the nursery, Jeff Searle or I (Ryan). The plant selection process has already begun and will continue right up to the last day before the Extravaganza, (sometimes even on the mornings of the event if the need applies.) The sale lists for palms, cycads and crotons will be made available as soon as they are completed. Special selections might be pulled for sale as requests, but only if the plants are available. There will be certain species, varieties and cultivars that will only be available in limited quantities. These rarer plants will likely sell out quickly in the morning hours, so be sure to arrange your wish list accordingly. Plant groups may have been moved around the sales area, relocated, or added in with others. In order to speed your way to your favorite plants please ask a nearby volunteer as to their location.

    Like with previous events, I will be able to provide preview photos of the actual plants for sale. They will be posted in this topic for those who are interested. Post the request here or send me a message or an email with the names of the plants you would like to see, including members of specific groups or genera. Sale booklets or sale lists will be made available at the Extravaganza. They will include the list of palms, cycads and crotons for sale. Holders located at both entrances to the main shade house will have the booklets on display along with other important information. As soon as I have a basic list of species and varieties for sale, I will be able to email or PM it to anyone who would want a copy. Each plant will be priced with either a lavender tag or will have the price written on the pot.

    Featured Plant Groups:
    The plant selection at the Extravaganza is constantly growing and changing. The largest and most diverse group is by far the Palms, of which there will be over 300 species available in various different sizes. A large amount of Crotons will also be on display as their demand has increased production to new levels.

    Palms:
    Aroids:
    Bromeliads:
    Cycads:
    Crotons:
    Cordylines:
    Ferns:
    Heliconias and Gingers:
    Orchids:
    Tropical Flowering Trees, Shrubs, and Vines:
    Landscape Ornamentals:
    Tropical Fruit Trees:

    Rare and Hard-to-find Exotics:
    and more: There is always a chance a new & exotic species of tropical plant will make its way into the sales area.

    The Sale Flyer:
    The nursery will soon mail out sale flyers to everyone on our mailing list. If you are on the mailing list and do not receive one, please let Jeff or myself know. In addition, if you would like to be placed on the mailing list for future Extravaganza flyers, please send a message to Jeff or myself with your address.

    Plant Carts:

    We do provide a limited amount of carts for customers to use, but it is recommended that you bring your own plant shopping conveyance. The carts do go quickly in the morning of each day, soon after the gates open and customers make their way to the sales area. During the day when they are returned from the holding area or from the parking lot, they are placed back on the concrete pad across from the register area.

    Accommodations:
    A comfortable Hampton Inn is located within a short driving distance of the nursery. It has been used by our customers, volunteers and family members in the past who travel a long way to reach the 'Ganza and who require a comfortable place to stay. The Hampton Inn Pembroke Pines/Ft. Lauderdale West is located at the intersection of I-75 and Sheridan Street. (see map above...) If you like to inquire about the hotel, follow the link below:

    Previous Extravaganza:
    For a look back at the previous 'Ganza that took place in March of this year, follow the link below. It has a selection of posts and photos highlighting the key moments of the sale. The topic will also showcase many of the plants that may be available in October, as the selection changes from season to season.

    Information and Invitation:
    If you need any more details regarding plants, directions, or anything that I have not included above, feel free to contact the nursery, Jeff Searle or myself by the methods mentioned above. Feel free to post any messages, questions, etc. in this topic. Jeff Searle, I and all the family members and volunteers look forward to meeting everyone including new and familiar Forum members and IPS members at the upcoming Extravaganza. Be sure to find one of us and introduce yourself. You will be sure to find other Forum members at the event as well, possibly walking right past you down an aisle or grabbing for the same plant. The entire Searle family and the masses of volunteers will be waiting to help you find that perfect plant.

    We hope to see you there!

    > The Croton list will take longer than usual as recent heavy rainfall has hampered efforts to create the list as some areas of the nursery have been flooded. Jeff might have to compile the list via a boat. As soon as I have it ready, it shall be posted below.

    Hey Ryan - who designed the Flyer? Was that you? I pay attention to stuff like that - it is really well designed.

    Hey Dean,

    The flyer was my handiwork, thank you for the comment. It was actually the second-string draft of the flyer. I was trying to do something a bit fancier with the design but it did not work out as intended... and I ran out of time. Time to mail it out had come fast, as it always does, and I went with this version.

    Lamar, I'm not real good at specific ID's on most Date (Phoenix species) palms, but this is definitely one of them. It almost looks a bit hybridized to me, but I can see P. sylvestris in it for sure.

    I'm pretty certain it's P. sylvestris. And one that needs to be watered more often.

    Thanks, On aside note I was out riding my bike and went by John Binders home sad to say there is not a croton on the property. At one time it was truly one of the finest collections ever. As it is often said time marches on.

    Ryan, do you have a picture of the croton section set up yet? I always love seeing the entire stash before it gets picked over on Friday morning.

    I will get a photo of the Croton section tomorrow. It was still being setup today during the afternoon hours and I think it is ready.

    Tim,

    The croton section is complete. Because of so many plants, their all closer together and will take some real poking around to find the goodies. But hey...that's part of the fun in finding what your looking for!

    I just wanted to thank all of you that dropped by this past weekend. I'm sorry that I couldn't spend more time talking with some of you, but I tend to get very bust at times. After talking to Judy Glock and Tim ( came up from Key West ) it's amazing to hear just how many crotons are going out of the nursery to so many new homes.
    I restocked with some more plants and dropped the price on several varieties for the second weekend. Hope to send many more to good homes!

    As collectors, we stay connected looking for the rarest of the rares. What Jeff's sale is doing is introducing many newbies to these wonderfull plants. Judy, Tim and myself spend a lot of time talking crotons to those unfamiliar. Often they pick out 2 or 3, but you see them at the next sale picking up 5 or 6.

    I really wish the old Croton Society could reestablish itself. They got the Croton Rennessansce going. This forum and Jeff's sales are the main venue promoting the use of these plants in the garden. At least the more unusual cultivars.
