Stopping by Sprout Home feels a little bit like dropping in at a friend's home - a friend with a fabulous modern aesthetic. The large open space, poured concrete floors and tons of light make the shop a perfect backdrop for all the plants, garden supplies, furnishings, tableware, and gifts.
Yes, there is a bit of everything here but the shopkeepers consistent vision makes it work beautifully. And the garden is full of gorgeous plants like passion flower and bamboo as well as organic herbs and vegetables to expand your notion of decor.
Sprout is not just about the products, they also offer design and installation services; their specialty is rooftop/container gardening.
If your edible gardening skills are not up to speed, you can also purchase fresh organic produce brought to Sprout from Prospera Farm, beginning in June.
