I received this question today from Patricia:

I’m a new transplant to NYC & G’point and was wondering if you could recommend any plant nurseries. I’m looking for bags of organic soil in particular, and am looking on yelp.com and elsewhere, but just thought I’d check with you to see if there were any you knew in the ‘hood.


P.S. Love the blog….

My suggestion would be the place on the corner of Manhattan Ave & India St. I’m not sure if they carry organic soil but I know they’re more than just a flower shop and I bet they’d have what you need or would be able to tell you where to get it. I have to note to get the name of the place on my way home tonight. I hate mentioning a business and not knowing the name/address of it.


Chime in if you have any further suggestions for Patricia!
