Sprout Home (from Chicago) has opened up shop in New York. It is almost impossible for a flower shop to have a large space in Manhattan, but over in Brooklyn they have found a beautiful and spacious location on Grand Street in Williamsburg, with dizzying high ceilings, a spacious back garden space, and the most refreshing cross breeze that travels right through the entire shop - no AC needed.
Sprout has a bit of everything, just as described on their website, with more to discover as one circles around. They had a large potted Passiflora which I only wish could survive in my dark apartment, as well as an entire wall of air plants that are easy enough to care for with a little misting. The garden area had quite a bit packed in - large pots of ornamental grasses, coneflowers, rudbeckia, hostas, and even enormous butterfly bushes for a backyard or balcony planter. And interesting choices of cut flowers (you know I loved the Nigella). With such a big space they also do a good job of keeping the plants watered and happy from front to back.
