In Atlanta for the weekend? Want to check out three fantastic garden shops and a small garden center in between sampling the city’s fantastic restaurant scene and beautiful botanical garden? Even in a short weekend trip, Atlanta doesn’t disappoint. From classic and traditional to artistic and crafts-driven to funky and fun, we’ve chosen three of our favorite garden shops and garden center. In between shopping, take a side-trip to Atlanta’s wonderful botanic garden. By car, it’s possible to visit all in a leisurely weekend of garden shopping.
In what at first appears to be a small 1920s house, Boxwoods is actually a deceptively large and expansive emporium of nooks and crannies that includes a very active floral shop, a small nursery (with boxwood topiaries of course), carefully curated and staged ‘rooms’ full of antiques for inside and out, gifts, and clothes. Although its underlying theme can best be described as Southern Classic, the Buckhead shop has inspiring vignettes galore and items at every price for any style garden.
