A leafy oasis for city slickers who need a little country in their lives.. The Scene Set behind an asphalt parking lot, the Urban Gardener is very much what its name evokes--a small city space packed with plants and household decorations that are meant to help make small city spaces feel a little more pastoral. If Plant Killer is your nickname, talk to the employees here about low-maintenance options and plant care. They're full of suggestions and advice.
The Goods One room is devoted to all kinds of accoutrements for rooms, window boxes and porches--from pots to gloves to mini-kits that will help you build an edible flower garden. Another room overflows with handcrafted luminaries, scented candles, sunlight-catchers and mosquito socks that say Got Blood? Plants fill the front foyer, as well as the gated part of the parking lot (when weather allows).
