There is a little oasis in Atlanta's Grant Park neighborhood called Garden*Hood, this is where I go when I want to add color to my yard or plant an edible garden.  The staff is friendly and helpful and I can feel confident that the plants I purchase have been nurtured and well taken care of.  I highly recommend visiting Garden*Hood or your local independently-owned garden retail center.

Bees like it too!
I had to take some of these home with me.
A pleasant welcome home.
I choose flowering plants, plants with vibrantly-colored leaves and a beautiful purple basil.  This arrangement was less than $50.
