A good store for house plants?

house plant leaves closeupAaron emails:

I am relatively new to Albany and have not been able to locate a good house plant and house plant supply store. I know Lowe's and Home Depot have a small selection, but nothing impressive. Are there any such stores in the Capital District? Greenhouses that offer a selection, but only in the summer? Any help will be appreciated.

Off the top of our heads, you might try Faddegon's in Latham.

Have a suggestion for Aaron? Share, please!

2nd, 3rd and 4th the Faddegon's suggestion. I live in Albany and that's my favorite plant store hands down. The people are incredibly helpful and the prices are decent. They also really take care of their stock so you don't get them home only to find they're root bound or harboring some rotty plant disease.

George's Market is new and improved in its new location in Latham, Hewitt's and Gade Farm might also have what you're looking for.

I second Hewitt's. There are a couple around the area, so there's bound to be one close by.

Must back up the Faddegon's suggestion. They are so helpful, and informative. The staff there have spent toms of time talking with me about what would work in my sandy soil. I bought end of season sale berry bushes that have done wonderfully for the past 3 years. Hands down best plant place I know of in the area.

What about Renaissance on Western Ave. It's a pretty place to stop in at any rate.

You just missed the House and Garden show at HVCC this year. I always pick up my house plants there each year!

I have also been partial to George's in Latham.
