Flora Grubb Nursery: San Francisco's Coolest, Greenest Oasis
Even the blackest of thumbs can find inspiration at Flora Grubb’s eponymous nursery—or at least a good cup of coffee. Grubb runs the enormous space (complete with Ritual Coffee Roasters bar) with a gallery-like ethos, rotating in new displays every week along with plenty of gear from basics (Japanese pruners) to funky garden flair (succulent letters).
Flora Grubb Gardens is my favorite nursery in the Bay Area—because it's so much more than that. Located in the industrial Bayview neighborhood, Flora Grubb looks like Eden, full of native plants, succulents, and gorgeous ceramic pots. Oh, and did I mention there's also a Blue Bottle coffee counter on-site?
