Summer 2015 Field Trip
In July our members took a trip to Richmond to visit 2 nurseries and the new Gallery Furniture Store.
We did not see the usual display and selection of plants! A garden path throughout 1 large nursery was flanked with potted plants for sale. A highlight were the many varieties of clumping bamboo growing. The other nursery highlighted numerous unusual and creative container gardens.
Gallery Furniture was the biggest surprise. The atrium had an amazing 'green wall', beautiful plants including many orchids, a koi pond filled with water lilies, tropical birds and even a huge salt water aquarium with colorful fish and a couple sharks. All in a FURNITURE STORE!
