The family-owned Classic Nursery outfits growers for complete garden revampings with a slew of plants and gardening products. Friendly staffers help patrons navigate the nursery's selection of greenery and goods to find the perfect plant that enlivens green spaces or adds a natural touch to stone-walled emu enclosures. One-gallon succulents and cacti ($5) bring southwestern flair to vegetative offerings, and 15-gallon fruit trees ($45–$50) eventually pay back love and affection with edible interest. Five-gallon ferns and tropical plants ($15–$20) thrive with new growth, transforming indoor and outdoor spaces into tropical sanctuaries capable of luring flocks of toucans. A plethora of gardening products, such as a 4-pound container of assorted organic fertilizer ($7.99), provides a steady stream of organic nutrients to keep plants well fed, lively, and effortlessly conversational. Classic Nursery is open every day from 8 a.m.–5 p.m.
As guests peruse aisles of annuals, perennials, roses, trees, and shrubs at Classic Nursery, they are admiring a selection of backyard-ready plants that has been honed by the nursery's owners for more than 20 years. The chlorophyll-savvy staff can help to direct customers toward high-maintenance plants or the blooms that will flourish in all types of sunlight and soil. The staff can also recommend just the right organic compost, seed cover, or potting soil that will expedite plant growth or feed a vase that’s a picky eater.
