Clifton Nurseries.

There aren’t many plant nurseries in the city (where real state is at a premium), but Clifton is an exception. Compact but well sorted, with the obligatory café/decor shop for the enjoyment of the less green fingered customers. The greenhouse is a favourite of mine and there’s something about the humidity, heat and sound of running water that reminds me of Brazil as soon as I walk in.

At this time of the year there are baskets fulls of daffodils bulbs everywhere and they also set up a lovely christmas shop at the Fern House. I didn’t buy the burrito sedum pictured here (I have one already and it’s gigantic) but did bring home a small string-of-pearls plant (finally!) inside a cute head shaped vase that I will show you another time, as I forgot to take pictures.
