Flowerland is a gardener's delight. Located on Solano Avenue in Albany, California, this green thumb's heaven has a wide selection of plants, mostly native to the Bay Area.
If you don't have a green thumb, like me, they will help you select the perfect plant for your needs (me = cactus!). They also have a selection of organic potting soil and organic plant foods.
My favorite thing about Flowerland is driving past it on the way home from work each day. The owner changes the sign weekly with a nice quotation to muse on, things like "Have you hugged someone today?" or sometimes there will be a passage from a poem.
