Even more surprising was this! Not the chain link fence with the precious barbed wire ruffle, that's a common sight in this area, it's the sign and the plants. The plant mobile was equally excited and found the parking lot quickly!
They had some of my faves like this Abutilon 'Red Tiger' trained as a standard.
Cannas, brugmansia, tetrapanax, musa basjoo, the whole gang's here!
Looks like plans for raised beds!
Turns out, the fenced lot goes with Green Thumb Garden Supply which recently moved here from a different part of town. I'd shopped at the former location, an indoor gardening/hydroponics supply place (no plants) because they were the only place I could find Pro Mix potting soil and was disappointed when they left their location right between Home Depot and Lowe's. (handy, right?)
The good thing about this new location is that there is a great deal more space inside and a huge outdoor plant sales area. Hooray! It'll be interesting to watch the plant sales area of this place evolve.
