Traveling through central ohio -

Any one recommend any great garden centers? We were watching PBS (WOSU) a few weeks ago and saw something called Possum....Looked interesting. No idea what it was though...

Baker's Acres in Alexandria Ohio! Number one in my book. In the metro area, Oakland Nursery just east of I-71 and north of east-north Broadway.

I think they were mentioning Possum Run Greenhouse, sorry I haven't been there.

Try this discussion, or this one for more ideas.

Has anyone been there? I looked Possum Run Greenhouse up on the web - Looks interesting. May head up that way this weekend . . . Not exactly sure what to expect. I just remember catching the tail end of their ad on WOSU - seemed interesting.

I've never heard of it but am wondering if it's near Mansfield.There's a place called Possum Run Rd that is always colder than anywhere else in Ohio...which seemingly would not be a great place for a greenhouse.

GOODNESS!! THIS PLACE IS INCREDIBLE! OUr computer was broken most of the week - Was killing me to not tell everyone of Possum Run. GORGEOUS. Best looking plants and selection around. I mean around. I've been to Bakers Village, Straders, Plantland, & Oakland. Their selection is clean and beautiful. THey have a glass greenhouse that you can shop in - We picked up some beautiful containers there too...

I don't know where to start or stop. They have a just an place. Aside from Gardening - I love my trinkets. They have the Carolers...Byer's. just awesome displays in an old barn. nice the way they mingle antiques with their displays....

BRIDGE - WATERFALL! THEY FILL THE ROOM. WORDS CAN'T DESCRIBE.

YOU HAVE TO SEE FOR YOURSELF!

Sounds wonderful! I might just schedule a little trip.

But, please don't mistake Baker's Village in Dublin with Baker's Acres in Alexandria - apples and oranges. I enjoy both - but the one in Dublin is more of a cute little boutique with nice plants. Baker's Acres in Alexandria is truly a gardener's dream with an incredible selection of hard to find plants - totally cool.

Straders has mixed reviews I use them for lawnmower and snow blower repair. Plantland is hit or miss for me although they have hort students there to answer questions.
I would rate Oakland higher for the knowledge of the employees and their answers to email questions, prompt and accurate. Plus, they did the bulk of my heavy landscaping and did a great job.

Here in Northern Ky (Florence) is a place called Reminiscent Herb Farm. They have an amazing selection on several acres.

I am from NW Columbus, but I love Dills in Canal Winchester, and go there everytime I get down that way. Now I'll have to check out this possum run place too!
