Here is the perfect event for all Brooklyn gardeners.
Just a few years ago, the Gowanus Nursery relocated from Third Street near Hoyt Street to Summit Street in Red Hook. Then, shortly after the move, it looked as though the nursery would have to move once again because the lot it occupied was going to be developed.
That was in 2007. Obviously, the business was able to stay at the Summit Street location for three more summers.
However, as the flier above would indicate, Gowanus Nursery will be relocating, but before the move, an auction of shrubs, trees and containers will be held at the end of September, followed by a perennial auction.
The nursery's new location will be announced at an auction pre-view on September 24th.
Make sure to mark the event on your calendar and to check it out.
