I am originally from Orlando where we have a number of wonderful plant nurseries but I just transferred to USF and am trying to outfit my apartment balcony (my first free-reign *private* gardening space EVER!!!) with a number of hanging plants and possibly taro and whatever else suits my fancy....
but, alas, I am having issues finding somewhere with a large selection of plants without ending up at Kmart or Target or Lowes... maybe just aesthetically or economically I'd rather shop at a family/local store.
I have a car which gets awesome gas mileage and I drive approximately .3 miles to school and back during the day... so if you have a good place but its a tiny hike away I'm not opposed. ;-)
