Poor Richards Almanac blog takes us on a virtual tour of an obscure Pennsylvania nursery in a town nobody has ever heard of (until today.)
Imagine the thrill of driving down a winding river road, passing tiny villages and lots of seemingly uninhabited woodland, then suddenly rounding a bend and seeing the huge dome of a Victorian glasshouse rising on your right…. an enormous greenhouse that is packed with every kind of marvelfigs and citrus, cacti and succulents, an incredible collection of coleus, an extensive herb section, hanging baskets of every kind, and innumerable flowering plants.
Strangely enough, some other people had previously discovered Ott’s. They posted on gardenweb.
…when i was a kid, sometimes our sunday drive would include a trip there. you couldn’t pull my mother out.
That’s enough about Ott’s for today.
