A Little Bit About Me . . .  


Alaska highway 2002

Hello, I'm Onalee and I thought some of you may want to know a little about me . . . . 

I'm a true native Floridian, as was my mother - my dad came to Florida on vacation from Missouri in the late 50's and decided to stay - he'd had enough of the cold!  My mother died in childbirth and I was raised by my very hard working and loving Dad.  Here we are in 1966: 

 1966 Dad and Lawnmower


My Dad never went on another vacation, but thanks to wonderful family friends (thanks Brenda and Doug!), I got to go on numerous camping trips across the country as a child and developed a real love of nature.

Not too long ago, my husband and I got the opportunity to travel to Alaska - WOW! If you've never been, I highly recommend putting that on your 'to see' list!

So, how did I start selling seeds and plants?  Well, I think it all comes back to my love of nature and my Dad's work ethic - he taught me to never waste anything (he was the ORIGINAL king of recycling, trust me!) So when the plants that I loved started producing seeds, I just couldn't let them fall on the ground, I knew there had to be something I could do with them so they wouldn't be wasted. 

Then I discovered Ebay and selling on the internet; that was in 2001. I started with a few seeds from the plants in my yard and as I added more plants, I added more seeds and my husband got in on the act, too.

Neither of us are 'professional' gardeners or even a master gardeners, we're just regular gardeners and plant lovers sharing the flowers and plants that we love and that we find easy to grow (because we don't have the patience to dote on plants!) with other plant lovers like you!

We have a farm in central Florida with my Australian Shepherd, "Bob" (meet Bob), a small herd of Katahdin/Dorper hair sheep  - and, of course, all the plants!
