Love this place, have been going there for years and years and it hasn't changed much except for the better - the model train out front, the demonstrations and lectures, good weekend sales.

If you're looking for some of that famous South Austin, laid-back vibe, this is the place.  You'll find knowledgeable staff, plenty of trees, perennials and annuals, ceramic pots and lots of whimsy.  They are definitely doing their part to keep Austin weird and growing!

"This place it just lovely!  Good prices, helpful staff and a certain wabi sabi Austin feel that will have me making the journey out to their place again. Next time I won't hesitate to bring the kids, birds, dirt, plants, trains...what's not to love!"
- JM (Yelp)

"This place is fantastic.  The owner and staff are really helpful, and it shows.  It's really a gem. There is a big variety of plants, fruit trees, herbs, and vegetables. AND... they have the coolest electric train set up."
