(Re)Discover Chattanooga - The Barn Nursery

"Thanks for shopping with us. Now go play in the yard!"

Last night my mom and I participated in a TN Aquarium member program at The Barn Nursery. It was a hanging basket workshop, and my Mother's Day present for Mom.

I haven't been to The Barn Nursery in over 10 years, and I was impressed. They have a new design center with durable counter space, recessed soil bins, and a hanging display area. The staff is CRAZY knowledgeable, and had some great handouts for us to take with us. (more available online)

Mom made a basket for shade, and I made one for sun. I was happy when my basket included two types of bi-colored Lantana I had been eying, and some petunias that should hold up well in the Hot Chattanooga summer sun. I also picked up a "Sweet 100" tomato, and an apricot Gerber Daisy & some yellow Moss Roses to go in a strawberry pot on my little patio.

It started raining after our class, so we didn't get to spend as much time looking around as I'd like - but I can't wait to go back!
