People swear by Dimitris. Aside from being the largest garden center in NYC, it should go without saying that it's a great thing to have a nursery, meaning the kind where you can buy a shrub or a tree as well as a little pot of pansies, smack dab in the middle of the city.
Though some may argue that Dimitris isn't exactly "smack dab in the middle," it's quite accessible by transportation, and easy to hop in a cab with your loot and head home, no matter where you live. If you live on the East side, this is a no-brainer. The staff at Dimitris is knowledgeable, and although the selection isn't as hip or trendy as places like Chelsea Gardens, the prices tend to be a tad lower. If you're looking for something specific, definitely give them a call before making the trip.
