We’ve got a secret (and it has nothing to do with the power of positive thinking) but not much willpower.
Twist our arms: It’s Sprout Home, a garden shop oasis we were really, really trying to keep to ourselves.
The Burg’s new peaceful indoor-outdoor nursery is stocked with hundreds of botanicals, must-have trinkets, and green-thumbed employees.
Co-owner/floral wonder Tassy Zimmerman, who helped run the popular Chicago shop of the same name, prides herself on the selection of low-maintenance, unusual flora finds. Her favorites (and ours) include the tillandsias, displayed like spiders on a wall (no soil!), and tough (but delicate) rock plants that grow in volcanic sediment.
Those with reputations as plant killers should head to the gift section, where kitschy ceramics from Prague rest next to melamine plates, hanging orbs, and Brooklyn’s own Foxy & Winston stationery.
Sprout also makes eye-popping flower arrangements and can help you decorate al fresco with customized urban landscaping services, already gaining momentum in BK.
And that’s the dirt.
Sprout Home, 44 Grand Street, between Kent and Wythe Avenues, Williamsburg (718-388-4440 or sprouthome.com).
