I’m a big fan of the smaller mom & pop nurseries. They tend to be more personal and have quite an interesting assortment of plants, garden ornaments, sculptures, and water fountains that the bigger nurseries don’t carry.
One of my favorite nurseries is Cedros Gardens, 330 South Cedros Avenue, Solana Beach, in the Cedros Avenue Design District.

I still have to recommend getting something for your family first, though, just to help keep peace in the world.
