If you're a serious gardener, you forage for plants and supplies far and wide. If you're a serious Brooklyn gardener that used to mean a trip to Red Hook and a lot of online shopping. Botanica's my new go-to for its excellent selection of healthy perennials and hard-to-find annuals like Martha Washington geraniums. The store's owner, Marvin Paz, also has a construction business and built me a very modern shadowbox fence in ipe wood that is the most-commented thing about the house.

Great selection and exceptional service. I've shopped heavily at the large nuseries - Gowanus, Kings, Chelsea Garden and it's far and away the best service and shopping experience in Brooklyn. No snob appeal, reasonable prices, nice assortment of plants, pots, etc. They delivered for me the same day. HIGHLY recommended!
