2009 BEST City Green Thumbs

City Planter

Since urban gardeners typically don’t have a whole lot of dirt to dig in, fabulous pots and planters are a must, and these wares reflect that. The converted brick quarters in Northern Liberties hold modern vessels of bright green plastic or cool metal, glazed and terra-cotta pots, and eco-friendly containers. Brimming with expertise in all things horticultural, co-owner Mary Costello can lead the most serial plant-killer to a thriving, blooming growing space, be it stoop, window box or roof deck. Or you can start DIY-ing with a few plants, and get advice from the staff.
