Urban gardening is all the rage these days, and whether you need to spruce up your lawn or living room, GRDN's got just the thing to tame your concrete jungle.
A wide range of plants and fresh cut flowers are on display in the store, which, along with a lofty ceiling, airy feel and cement floors, gives the space a true patio feel. A gravel backyard is a charming addition to the space, with additional plants stocked for sale. A fresh floral bouquet can be taken home for the table, or you can arrange for weekly delivery. Floral design services are also available for your next special occasion.
If you're fortunate enough to have a patio, balcony, or other outside space that needs some attention, you'll find everything you need at GRDN. Glazed pots, trays, saucers, and vases are on display, each easy to clean and maintain. Naturally aged terra cotta pots covered with dormant moss (which resurfaces when grown in the shade) and pots by Ben Wolff, a second generation Connecticut potter, are some of the highlights. A selection of outdoor mats made from durable fibers are offered, as well as bird feeders, watering cans, plant misters, and gardening books full of advice and ideas. If you can wait, GRDN will be offering full garden design services for individuals and businesses in Spring 2010.
Many of the pots and planters suitable for outdoor use make charming additions to your indoor living space. Also available for the home are scented candles, wall art, tabletop decor, kitchen and bath items. When it comes time to clean up, try Gardner's Skin Care line of freshly scented bars and liquid soaps, specially formulated for green thumbs.
