The time of year has come when we stash our winter clothes (for the most part) and opt for flip flops, shorts and loose T’s. Outfitted, we hit the streets to wherever our hearts lead and for a large percent of us it’s to the garden. The feel of the moist soil in your hands, or smooth edge of a flower petal as you gently plant, overwhelms and delights you. If that’s true for you, you share a passion with 35% of Americans who decide to grow food at home or in a community garden.
We made our community garden with everyone in mind! If you’re looking to enjoy your own tomatoes or beans later this year, or perhaps you’re looking to cultivate flowers for the serenity it brings, we have enough space for your project. If you don’t know where to begin or what to buy we’d like to introduce you to Oak Street Garden Shop.
Oak Street Garden Shop is a local garden shop located in Mountain Brook, just minutes from The Retreat. They’ve been located in Crestline Village within the city of Mountain Brook, Alabama, since 1990. They are known for offering unique annuals, perennials, tropical plants, and shrubs! They also offer custom outdoor planter combinations which just might be the best in Birmingham! If you fancy an indoor arrangement, they can do a mixture of houseplants, orchids, and other flowers too!
Oak Street Garden Shop is open Monday to Saturday from 9AM-5:30PM, April through December. We encourage you to stop by to check out what kinds of garden goodies you can find there as you prepare for your planting season.
Now that you know where to shop, we hope to see you in our community gardening area getting those thumbs green and pants dirty! Happy planting!
