While attending the Goochland - Powhatan Master Gardeners Spring Garden Fest last Saturday, I met Peggy who is opening a new garden center shop in one of the empty storefronts at Plum Tree corner on 250 / Broad Street in Manakin-Sabot, Goochland County. Her grand opening is today, Saturday May 2. I wish I could go but won't be able to. Any of you locals who will be in the area, please stop by and check out her new place! Her website is: http://www.thegrowingspot.com/ . One of the first thing she had that caught my eye were rain barrels and compost bins for a great price. We had searched hard for a rain barrel for my mother in law last summer and finally found one at Pleasant's Hardware. I may get one from this lady. You should consider it too!
