Nestled into a snug spot at the Magnolia Shopping Center, this nursery focuses on the city gardener. It attracts both neighborhood regulars and city clientele looking for useful horticultural advice and the latest plant news. The staff offers personal service to beginning as well as experienced gardeners, carefully guiding them through their planting projects. It's a nursery where the staff takes the time to give thorough information, so that customers' plants will thrive.
Magnolia Gardening Center features a basic selection of shrubs, perennials and annuals, as well as the latest gardening trends. The owners like to search out new and unusual perennials and to find innovative uses for old standards. Organic gardeners will like the variety of environment-friendly products. There is a good selection of large and small decorative pots, garden accessories and fountains, most of them hand-crafted.
Keep an eye out for Cookie, the black cat that roves the nursery. This personable pet likes to sit on the cash register computer keypads--occasionally, receipts simply have to be written out by hand.
