Last Saturday I got to visit the Liberty Sunset Garden Center for the first time. Come for the selection. Stay for the views.
Statue of Liberty and New York Harbor viewed from Liberty Sunset Garden Center on Pier 41 in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
They have the best selection of plants I've found at any nursery in Brooklyn. They have a lot of space, which they've put to use by providing greater variety. They had many perennials and annuals I couldn't identify without looking at their tags, which is saying something. (Woodies, not so much; I'm notoriously bad in their identification.)
The plants - even annuals - were all in good shape, clearly well-tended and cared for. Their prices also seemed generally lower than those at the nearby Chelsea Garden Center and Gowanus Nursery.
This orange Echinacea spoke to me, so I bought it.
A couple more views. More photos available in the Flickr set of my visit.
