Spring has sprung, and MAN, did Houston get the memo! Now that we’re basically getting summer weather, it’s the perfect time to garden. While there are a ton of fantastic nurseries in the Houston area, Thompson + Hanson is arguably one of the best. That’s why, for this month’s blog, we’ve put together a list of 5 reasons we think you should check out Thompson + Hanson this spring!
1. They Have an Amazing Selection
Out of all the nurseries in Houston, T+H has one of the best selections! From succulents to tiny boxwoods, fruit trees to the trendiest of indoor plants, this nursery has it all. As if that wasn’t enough, they also have a home decor boutique onsite with everything you need to make your home as beautiful as your garden!
2. They’re Attached to Tiny Boxwoods
If you hail from H-town, you’ve probably heard of Tiny Boxwoods, one of the city’s best hidden treasures. Sharing a courtyard and patio with T+H, this brunch hotspot has everything you could possibly want in a menu, and is well-known for their mint lemonade and the best chocolate chip cookies ever! With the perfect garden view and chic french music playing in the background, Tiny Boxwoods is the perfect place to eat and relax after a hot, hard day of deciding which of the hundreds of plants at T+H to put in your garden!
3. They Do Custom Pot Designs
Just when we thought this place couldn’t get any better, we found out that they do custom pot designs. If you haven’t heard of this, it’s basically like a flower arrangement in a planter, and it’s just as awesome as it sounds. They offer succulent arrangements as well as seasonal color arrangements, and have something for every occasion you can possibly think of! Honestly, this description doesn’t do it any justice, so do yourself a favor and check it out here.
4. They Sponsor Tons of Workshops & Events
If you head to the Thompson + Hanson website, you’ll notice that there’s a special little tab for Workshops and Events! T+H is well-known for the awesome workshops it hosts, and actually has a few that are coming up! We stan a company that contributes to its community, and T+H fits the bill.
5. They’re Carrying Spiked Soil!
Last, but certainly not least, we think you should check out T+H because they just started carrying our best-selling product, Dirt Martini! Dirt Martini is even better than its boozy name suggests. This potting soil is super light and airy, and with 18 quality ingredients, has just a bit of fertilizer to give your plants the extra kick they need to be the best they can be! We recommend it as a seed starter as well as a potting soil, and our customers have had nothing but great things to say about it!
We hope you found this blog helpful! Don’t forget to check out our story highlights for a video showing where to find our products within T+H, and make sure to say hi for us when you go! Happy Planting!
