Into the Wild | Portland Nursery, Portland, Oregon

OK, this post is for all of you west of the Cascade Mountains. I stopped by Portland Nursery on Division Street last weekend. I will have to say that it may have been the highlight of my weekend. I was in the car for 10 hours with my husband, 2 tired kids, 2 barking dogs and an 8 week old puppy. Thaaaaaaaat's right. As you can imagine, it was QUITE the adventure. Did I mention that the new puppy gets car sick?

If you live in the Portland area, I would highly recommend going by Portland Nursery. The staff was very helpful and the displays are quite inspiring. They carry woolly pockets and other vertical modules too! The modules on the right are ones that Blooming Desert carries. Our Incredible, Edible, Vertical Garden class included these units and they are very easy to care for.

There is also a great interior plant selection offering unique tropicals and succulents. The exterior plants are separated into categories such a Rock Garden, Bioswale and Rain Garden, Edibles and Shade Garden, which makes it very easy to shop. I admit, living in Bend, I was a little jealous of all the beautiful plants that were available to the 'Westsiders'...guess I'll just have to make it over there again. Next time without the family.
