Beneath the tall palm trees that dot Amelia's SmartyPlants' outdoor garden lies a vast stock of lush plants and vibrant blooms handpicked by an expert staff. The 2-acre independent gardening center amasses plant species both familiar and unusual, helping homeowners beautify their yards and the environment with native florals, ornamental shrubs and trees, and colorful glass garden art that adds color and whimsy to natural plots. Aside from dishing out advice in a monthly newsletter or through their regular in-shop seminars, the plant pros can offer tips on garden design, fertilization, and how to control pests via hypnosis or the shop’s selection of organic and synthetic products. An indoor shopping area also awaits to show off shelves stocked with tools and garden accessories––many made in the United States—such as fountains and statues, all waiting to add interest to landscapes or the miniature dioramas of middle-school giants.
