Now that it FINALLY is starting to feel chilly, it's so nice to have some reminder of the outdoors, inside. Plus, houseplants clean the air, and just make you feel good.
Crest Hardware's Urban Garden Center in Williamsburg, near the Lorimer L Train stop, is fab. Beside the hardware store, there is a 5,000 square foot garden filled with all sorts of indoor and outdoor plants, soil, pots. And the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. So are their store pets-Franklin the pig, or the African grey parrot. All true!
Another must is the Chelsea Garden Center, with locations in both Williamsburg and Red Hook. An enormous oasis that is sure to have everything you could need for adding beauty and freshness to your apartment. Unlike Crest Hardware, the Chelsea Garden Center also offers and array of delivery + design services for those who are getting super serious-they even do custom decking, patio, and stone services. And why not?
Now that you have your plants, how to pot them?
