When will Green Jungle in Orlando open?
« on: May 29, 2020, 02:42:17 PM »
So apparently Green Jungle in Orlando has a recording saying they are closed for Corona virus. I looked for an email and on their Facebook page and couldn’t find out when they plan to open. Any chance someone here knows when they plan to open or have some other inside knowledge? Thanks

The gentleman, Bob, who ran it apparently passed away from the Covid19 virus. Shame...he was a nice guy with a great selection of trees.  :(

Too many good lives cut short by this pandemic.

That's too bad. Tragic loss. This was a great nursery.

I remember visiting his nursery a few years ago. Mr. Hopper was the name I believe. Such a nice guy.
