I went to Flora Grubb in SF a few days ago, and was reminded how much I like this place. Their plants are SO healthy, they have a huge variety, and the people who work there are both nice and knowledgeable. If you live (or are traveling) anywhere within, say, two hours, it's worth a trip. I love walking around FG and getting design ideas. Every time I go, they seem to have something I've never seen before.
Unfortunately, FG is very expensive ($3.95 for a two-incher? Yipes!) Nonetheless, I love it. There's also a Ritual Roasters inside. Drinking a perfectly-made latte while walking around hundreds of different kinds of succulents... what could be better? Here are some pics!
I Love Flora Grubb.
Somehow, I managed to confine my purchases to a single euphorbia obesa for my girlfriend... this time, anyway. What other places in (or near) the Bay Area should I be sure to check out?

I have three fav nursery a here in the BayArea. Flora Grubb is definitely my fav, but the Berkeley horticultural nursery in Berkeley and Annie's Annuals in Richmond are also amazing! :-). BTW, how in the work did u escape with only one plant???!!! Oh, also, cactus jungle in Berkeley and Dry Garden are worth a stop if you head over to the horticultural nursery. You could hit them all for a day across the bay! :-)

Have you been to Succulent Gardens in Castroville? The best succulent nursery I have ever been to. Plus, Castroville is an excuse for lunch at the Giant Artichoke
