Costa Farms is the is the leader in the indoor houseplant and bedding plant industry. If you've purchased a potted plant at one of the big retail chains or garden centers, chances are you took home a plant grown at Costa Farms.
Costa Farms is a third generation, family owned business that globally stretches over 3,500 acres and employs 2,800 people. As you can see from the picture of their trial garden above, their farms are beautiful and lush & you can find anything and everything you can imagine in the indoor houseplant category. They currently grow over 1,500 types of houseplants including various popular indoor and outdoor tropical plants. Located in Goulds, Florida - I really would love to visit.
In reading up on Costa Farms, I hear that when you do visit you'll find some of the nicest people you'll ever hope to meet. That has been true of my experience with them this far. Their marketing director is friendly and personable and represents her company well.
I was sent several plants to review. They all arrived in great condition and are absolutely beautiful. Even those with fragile blooms reached me unharmed. I grow attached to my plants - to me it's almost like having a pet. I take the best care of them that I can.
As we were discussing what would make a good promotional giveaway, we decided on cacti & succulents -because of our overall drought across the country. Cacti & Succulents
So, let me show you some of the lovely cactus & succulent selection Costa Farms offers.
Remember when you're out and you want to bring a plant home, check the tag and see if you're bringing home a Costa Farms plant!
Five lucky winners will receive a wonderful cactus or succulent of their choice from the pictures above!
