I want to own a nursery just like this!

During my trip to Wilmington, NC my mom took me to Zone 8, a fantastic nursery tucked away in the midst of strip malls and highways. Isn't that the best name? Love it. The property is a magical oasis jam-packed with really interesting finds and unusual combinations of plants. The greenhouse/store area in particular is like a dreamy wonderland filled with odds and bits that work together so well. My mom seemed to think it came under new ownership recently as it used to be a bit run down — but no longer! Have a peak…

I mostly took photos inside the space because I was so awed while wandering around outside. So I don't have a good "establishing" shot for you of the outside, but here's a wee little glimpse of some of the plants:

If you're ever in the area and need a little getaway, you should take a stroll through:

Zone 8 Gardens
3802 South College Road
Wilmington, NC 28412-2006
(910) 792-1118

Or maybe one day you'll be able to visit Zone 6 here in Ann Arbor!


  1. that'd be awesome and I'd love to own a farm too...;)

  2. I would love to own that, too! Maybe I'll just come visit Zone 6. ;)

  3. that place looks most amazing!

  4. One day… one day!! You can all visit me at Zone 6!
