The gates are impressive, you may remember this place, it used to be downtown off 5th.
They have really nice patio art and furniture, the prices are very reasonable and there are some good buys up until the first of the year!
60% off whitewashed, unfinished pots! I didn't catch a shot of them but they have a large selection of chiminea's...better prices than Home Depot and Lowe's.
They have both folksy-rough and finished sculpture as well as metal work for collectors.
Randy and Terry are there in the back...they're looking for perfectly round pots with holes in the top...they had them but not big enough...
The second stop proved to be the best deal for me. Shoal Creek Nursery is just off Shoal Creek road on Hancock next to the Cemetery...a free source of rock by the way. Things tend to be pricey here but I found a Japanese Maple for $15! It was small...quart sized... I've never seen a price like that. They had several varieties ranging up to $160.
That's as far as we got before the boys were mooing about food! So, this again, was Randy's choice "El Azteca" at 2600 East 7th Street.
Oh yea, Bamboo of course.
As you can see, Ted's Trees offers more than just trees. There were several fields with large pots of shurbs and this one exposed greenhouse. Ted's is family owned and started as a wholesale nursery but they now sell to the public. They are just 2 miles east of downtown and were recently voted "Best Inner City Paradise" by the Chronicle, I may need to give them the heads up on The Utility Research Garden though!
We're adding another friend to the mix next week...Happy Gardening!
