Gardening in Brooklyn: Brooklyn Nurseries

As planting season is wrapping up, I thought it would be helpful to share a list of some of the bigger nurseries and plant shops in Brooklyn.  I know there are a lot more than this--there are some great plants for sale on bodegas on 5th and 7th ave.  If you have a favorite that is not listed here, please share with the rest of the garden in the comments section.

May Ask a Gardener

Where do garden members go to purchase plants?  Any local favorites to share with the community? I'll try to put together a round-up for the next post.  Would love to hear where you go.
