Sperling Nursery

Best Plant Nurseries, October 2010
There are multiple terraces at the expansive Sperling Nursery, each devoted to a different horticultural category. The bottom level features manicured rows of healthy herbs (Italian parsley, tarragon, sage) and veggies (golden beets, pumpkins, shallots) that can stir up recipe ideas. The top tier is a fruit tree showplace, where Meyer lemon, dwarf olive, pluot, and pomegranate trees await. In the middle are ranks of roses, but if annuals and perennials are what you desire, you’ll find them organized in rainbow hues near the checkout-adjacent greenhouse.
