Drake's 7 Dees Nursery
Every once in a while good ideas grow into great ideas. Nurseries hover on the fantastic side of good ideas, design by itself is also pretty grand. Put the two together and, boom, you have the freshly renovated Drake's 7 Dees Design Showroom and Garden Center in southwest Portland, a WOW idea brought to you by some of the finest talent in the Portland nursery trade.
How clever is that?
Let's look around a bit.
Drake's 7 Dees goal is to provide design ideas and inspiration, as well as becoming a community resource for learning about gardening sustainably. One thing I really love is that all of their products are chemical and synthetic-free. An organic nursery- I LOVE it! And they have stopped using neonicotinoids. A very important step in the right direction for our pollinators and world health overall. Yay! Gardening for the planet for the long-term also by using long-lasting materials such as stone, not plastic to add to the landfill.
In the mean time, if you are in the area, I encourage you to get out to Southwest Portland at 5645 SW Scholls Ferry Rd and pay a visit.
That's it this week at Chickadee Gardens. Thank you so much for reading and until next time, happy gardening (and garden shopping)!
