San Francisco’s Newest Hidden Plant Store
Back in March, I wrote about San Francisco’s Hidden Plant Stores. Now there’s another, and it’s a gem.
If you’re into plants and live in San Francisco, you probably already know about the monthly plant sales at the San Francisco Botanical Garden. But did you know that, just last month, the SFBG opened a small plant store? The Arbor is a small shop at the front entrance to the park (on 9th Avenue at Lincoln Way). They’re open every day from 10am to 4pm.
All the plants are grown in the park, so you know they’re going to be happy in our climate. And it’s not the usual plant store stuff – there’s an eclectic mix. They’re much cheaper than other local plant stores, and all the money goes to support our wonderful local botanical garden. And the best part is, the Arbor is staffed with passionate volunteers like myself (I’ve been volunteering in the nursery for the last few months), so you can get helpful one-on-one advice from the people who actually grew the plants.
So next time you visit the garden, stop by and check it out. Tell ’em Plantgasm sentcha.
