How To Grow
Irrigation and you
We're open Wednesday through Sunday, 9:05-5:08 EST
30 Saint Frances St. Crawfordville, FL (850) 926-5644
Shipping resumes in October 2014.
For folks who can make the trip to the nursery, we're open year round except for July, part of August and Holidays.
For all our local customers (and anyone willing to make the trip & save money!) we have our Pickup at Nursery Price List available.
We've updated our web site so we can present more of the ornamental plants we love to collect. To check out the more than 175 kinds of fruit we stock, go to the Fruit Home page (CLICK HERE) for a complete list. For a taste of our rare and unique ornamental collections, check out the Ornamental Home page (CLICK HERE). Check back, as we'll be adding new collections as we are have the time. And of course, both our fruit and ornamentals are available at our retail nursury.
Just in case you didn't know, in addition to being a mail order nursery, Just Fruits and Exotics is also a great destination nursery, complete with 1 1/2 acres of interesting gardens filled with funky combinations of fruit trees and exotic ornamentals. There are lots of interesting signs to read along the way.
We take great pride in our mail order business and always ship the same trees that you could buy at our retail nursery. However, we strongly encourage you to come visit us at our retail nursery to make your selections. You save yourself the shipping and handling charges and avoid possible damage from the mail order process. You also get to pick your own trees and we'll teach you to prune them in person. You'll also save money another way. Mail order costs us much more than selling retail (imagine phone bills, labor, billing and inventory costs), so our mail order plants cost 25-33% more than the exact same plant from the retail nursery. Besides, we'd like to meet our customers and make sure they're happy with their plants.
We’re open Wednesday through Sunday, 9:05-5:08. We're always closed between Christmas and New Year's and on Thanksgiving Day, Easter Sunday, and 4th of July. If you are traveling a long ways, or are with a tour group, garden club or other organization, be sure to call ahead. We’d love to make your experience a good one. If your interest lies in how your fruit tree was created, be sure to take a guided tour of our growing field.
