It’s time to plan and plant your own garden oasis this summer! Pittsburgh has options when it comes to making your yard bloom by shopping at your local greenhouse. Here are a few to ‘cart’ around in Pittsburgh:
When it comes to summer lawn, pond and garden care, Best Feeds Garden Centers have two locations on Babcock Blvd. and Wildwood Rd. and has been serving the North Hills since 1945. We can talk about all the plants but unique perks include being a rewards club member and how to grow your own kitchen garden. Keep an eye out for summer sales and other necessities such as bulk & bagged mulch, pottery & lawn accessories, pond supplies and water gardening. There’s a lot to soak in so take a stroll through their inventory and invent some new green spaces of your own.
Located on Mt. Troy Road, Brenckle’s Greenhouses has been a family-owned and operated business since 1921. Explore and dive your nose into the sweet aromas of bright, color-blasted flowers and buy some to help the bees this summer. The greenhouse has annuals, hanging baskets, vegetables, perennials/shrubs as well as seasonal items to go with the flow of nature. Learn about the family of four generations, plus their furry pets, Sky and Ginger.
