    Tropical Fern and Exotic Plant Society Meeting April 27, 2014

    Thailand, A Plant Lover’s Paradise

    The Tropical Fern & Exotic Plant Society presents Mr. Jeff Searle who will speak on Thailand, A Plant Lover’s Paradise on Monday, April 28th at 7:30 pm. The meeting will take place at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, 10901 Old Cutler Rd., Coral Gables, FL in the Corbin Building.
    A year and a half ago, Jeff Searle attended the International Palm Society’s Biennial meeting at Nong Nooch in Thailand. He extended his stay to go the plant markets in Bangkok and Chang Mai and his Thai friends took him to some local gardens and nurseries as well. His talk will be a pictorial presentation of his trip and the amazing plants he saw along the way.

    Jeff owns Searle Brother’s Nursery in Southwest Ranches in Broward with his brothers and father, “Pops”. He is well known for his Rainforest Collection of rare tropical palms and plants. The nursery is a wholesale operation but does open to the public for two weekends in March and in October. His personal collection of crotons numbers in the hundreds.

    There is no admission fee and the public is invited to attend this presentation. There will be plants donated by Stelmar Gardens (Philip Iloo) for Raffle. Refreshments will be served. For more information please visit www.tfeps.org or call 305 232-2257.
