The staff here know their stuff. They offer a great variety of plants that you will not find at the big box stores. They also have butterfly house, though I did not check that out.

Not only a great place to get your plants, but also take in the Butterfly Enclosure. A great thing to do "outdoors" on a rainy day. There is an extra charge for the experience, however it's worth it as you are allowed to visit as...More
