Dear PoP – Old City Green To Reopen For Spring Planting


“Dear PoP,

Driving around, I came across Old City Green at the intersection of N and 9th Street, a few blocks north of the convention center. They are an uncovered, fenced lot that sold Christmas trees back in Nov and Dec. I stopped by today to check on what they got going on, and hoped to buy some supplies/plants, but they are not yet open. They will open to customers on 3/28, but will be welcome landscape professionals this weekend. Appeared that they’ll be selling plants (seemed to have a good selection already), garden supplies (soil, wood chips/mulch, etc) and likely other stuff, and seemed to be working on setting up there space well. Very friendly people working the lot.”

Cool. I checked them out last weekend. They will be open to the public on 3/28 but just for the weekend. Starting April, 11th they’ll be open 7 days a week! And the folks were super nice. More info here.
