I set out on an adventure to find a garden oasis that I had been to some 15 years ago with Grandma. I'd thoughtbabout this place over the years and wanted to go back so badly, but Grandma and Pops couldnt remember where it was. I had a visual image in my head of where it was and was determined to find it - and I did!
The place has the most beautiful, plants, in any size and so many varieties, even the hard to find stuff. It's more than just a garden center. As one of the other customers put it , "it's like a sanctuary - beautiful!" So if you ever get the chance, you really ought to check this place out. ....very reasonable prices and in most cases, cheaper than home depot, etc...
To get there , go toward Opelika on 280. Get on the bypass as you come into Opelika and head toward Auburn. Take the Auburn exit and go about a mile and a half and its on your right....called "Blooming Colors". You wont be disappointed. It's sort of like a walk thru the gardens at Callaway, only smaller.....and the variety is much bigger. It's an adventure.
I have posted some pics of some of the plants I got on the main page at thechickenyard.com
