If you’re going to turn your little rowhouse plot into an English garden, Poor Boy’s has what you need: a big selection of annuals, perennials, shrubs, trees, and natural and non-natural boosters, killers, and fertilizers. The knowledgeable and friendly staff helps us figure out the best plants and arrangement for our limited space and lighting conditions, and while we’re gonna pay a little more than some places, we’re getting a ton of experience along with that plant. And we just like going there: walking around a beautifully landscaped fish pond (yes, there are supplies for that too) with a little red wagon full of plants is a laid-back and romantic way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
