If you’d like to visit Very Good Plants nursery it is located about 20 minutes east of town at Arabia Mountain. If you live intown you know Arabia because it’s the coolest day hike within driving distance. Weekend parking lots tell me that the big shoulder of hot granite with its desert habitat and stark realities, is a popular place to smoke a bowl, snap some art pics, sneak a nap on a boulder and reconnect with Other. We are down the road from all that. Call or Email for an appointment. 

I’m gardening a lot of the ten acres and the site is pretty stunning and has a lot to see. I love to share, so call, please, and bring friends. Otherwise look for us to have open days in the spring and fall and maybe in the summer too, when the plants are the best. 

The physical address is 7011 South Goddard road, Lithonia (soon to be Stonecrest) Georgia

Often no one is there so don't "drop by" and we don't get mail here so don't send a note.

Very Good Plants is currently supplying plants to the best designers in Atlanta (seriously, I don’t send my list to the other ones!) and a couple of good nurseries.

Dana, at the Ace Garden Center on Scott Blvd. in Decatur has done a remarkable job of making a great garden center and I’m always thrilled to drop off plants to her. She’s generous and kind with compliments and criticism. This has become the biggest and best resource for Atlanta gardeners and the wares move quickly.

Butch, at Gardenhood in Grant Park used to be in my potting shed. I miss our conversations but I’m glad that the dust has settled at this wonderful place that I helped build and had to leave behind and that my nudge to him to land there made him happy. It feels full-circle to see my plants on the tables there again.

I wish I could list many more local nurseries where you’ll find my plants, but alas, there aren’t any other independent nurseries in Atlanta. What a shame. High rents and zoning laws prohibiting outside merchandise are to blame.
