Diamond in the Rough

Most people do not venture out into the industrial Bayview district of San Francisco to explore the neighborhood, let alone travel out there for plants…until recently. I almost would like to keep it a secret but that would be impossible due to fame and press of it’s existence already. Flora Grubb Gardens, on Jerrold Avenue is truly a fabulous place filled with amazing plants, quirky furniture and a knowledgeable staff to assist people of all types that venture out there for the foliage of their dreams.

We go there for inspiration, to see new and unique plants for our gardens and to show our clients some other plants besides the typical species that they are used to. Upon walking in, large metal lotus sculptures that once grew out of the Black Rock Desert, now serve as bicycle racks for the non-driving visitors but there is plenty of parking in the surrounding area for you to fill your cars to the brim with lush green plants. I think the Ritual Coffee cafe inside is icing on the cake!
