Sam's Farm, Falls Church, VA
On an overcast misty day I went to Sam's Farm to buy plants for my containers. I like to buy coleus for the shade containers. I walked around and enjoyed the garden statues and found areas of the garden center that I never knew existed. When I got to the back of the property on a hill I saw an apiary. I was totally surprised. What an interesting time I had. I ended up with lots of coleus, French Lavender, parsley, rosemary, curry (this is the greatest smelling herb ever) basil, tomatoes, Citronella geranium, eucalyptus, persian shield and Mezoo trailing red dorotheanthus (this is supposed to like full sun or full shade how can you go wrong with that?) I even bought a jar of honey from their apiary. When presented with so many plant options I kind of go blank, but think I ended up with a good variety. It's been a few weeks and all the container are doing great. There are even a few small tomatoes.
I know you are wondering - OK what would someone do with that? Just in case you can't live without if for $1150 plus tax and delivery you can have one in your yard.
I found this cute wire chair plant stand at the garden center too.
I totally want a hillside of budas
Artfully yours, Linda
