Surely most “plant people” in southern Florida are familiar with Ramble. For those who aren’t, it is the annual plant-sale-and-more produced by Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. Its 72nd edition ran last weekend, November 9, 10, and 11th.
This year’s Ramble couldn’t have taken place in nicer weather, and for me as a vendor it presented the perfect atmosphere for seeing old friends and customers. Among other services to the community at large, Ramble offers participants the chance to see new introductions to the immense variety of tropical plants that can be grown successfully in our region.
I particularly wish to acknowledge Morgan Brooks for her role in the organization and coordination of the Ramble plant sale area, and I also would like to thank Rebecca Butler for her kindness and courtesy in assisting me to get around the Garden.
