Have you ever been to Flora Grubb? If you have, then the picture below is probably old news. But if you haven’t, and you live in the city, then you owe it to yourself to find some time to make your way out to this amazing garden center and nursery. Not only do they have amazing plant sculptures – like the car below – but they also have incredibly good plants, and really helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable people that know far more about plants than I probably ever will.
Even if trips to the Bayview aren’t your normal weekend (or evening) thing, if you have access to some yard and you are in need of plants, then I would strongly encourage you to find the time to visit Flora Grubb. Here are my top three reasons why you should visit the amazingly smart folks at Flora Grubb:
- I have yet to kill a plant that I have purchased at Flora Grubb. And while you might think I’m a Realtor, my main job is torturing plants before killing them. And so far, my black thumb has been no match for the great greenery of the Flora Grubb. If I can’t kill it, then you probably can’t either.
- It’s quirky. And sunny. Ok, make it four reasons. I can wander around the gardens at Flora Grubb for a very, very long time. They are filled with creatively arranged plants, plants I’ve never seen before, plants I didn’t know existed, and broken down cars that are filled with… plants.
