While you can purchase plants and gardening supplies at larger stores like Lowes, Home Depot and Ace Hardware, this blog is meant to highlight the best, smaller Nurseries located throughout the Northern VA area.  Many of these beautiful nurseries have unique plant varieties that are both high quality and uncommon in the average garden as well as herbs, trees and shrubs, lawn ornaments, fountains and charming little gift shops.  Several can offer valuable advice on building container gardens, flower beds, small garden ponds and more! Some may even be able to order in plants upon request. I highly encourage you to pay a visit to one (or several) if you enjoy gardening and/or are trying to improve your homes’ curb appeal.
