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.

  6. Organic gardening supplies leave no hazardous residue and break down naturally into the soil. Natural predators such as bats, praying mantis and ladybugs are great organic insect controls. Light deprivation greenhouse
