Wow, I didn't think a place like this existed outside of a magazine!

There is just a much variety of heirloom seeds, this is a must see for those with a green thumb, and those interested in gardening. Why go to your big box store to buy basic and common seeds when you can pick from rare or even better and more exotic varieties!

Asides from the seeds they Also have tools, books, and other items for sale. Bring your children to the kids corner by the cash register. Yiu can spend hours looking and searching for the right seeds. What a place!!

You will be in awe upon entering this place! Beautiful selection of gardening items, seeds galore. Just don't ask for help unless you brought along your big girl panties. When I asked a few seemingly fair questions, the man made me feel like a fool. "I don't know why you'd buy those now since it's not the season," Sarcastic, cutting remarks.
I left not buying anything and ended up at a big box store with folks willing to answer my 'stupid questions'.

This is an old bank building...worth going in just to see it. There are so many packets of seeds, it would take you a half a day to see them all! Friendly staff. Other novel items for sale. It took my girlfriend in for her birthday...she loved it.

this is an old bank building full of rows and rows of seeds. The workers were extremely helpful in finding what I wanted - swiss chard seeds - I had at least 7 to chose from. There were 3 rows of watermelon seeds. I wish I had more time to explore the entire store - It would have drained my pocket book for sure. I got a catalog - it's about 1/2 inch thick. I enjoyed browsing this store. On a Friday afternoon there were at least 10 people in the store.

This story is very different from any other store that I have been to. There are so many different seeds to look at and consider. In addition downstairs there are some great gardening tools.

They also have some ready to eat foods and they sell some specialty beans which I really enjoy.

The old bank that houses the store is also worth going in to see.
