For several years my husband and I would drive by Blooming Junction on our way to Cornelius or Forest Grove and would say one of these days we need to stop by here. Two years ago we finally did just that, and we were not disappointed.
I honestly have never been to a nursery like this one. I could wander for a few hours just looking at all of the plants looking for the perfect ones to go into our planters and yard. The staff is very knowledgeable, and if you’re lucky you’ll get to see the resident cat who is very friendly. With regards to the knowledge of the staff I had been on the hunt for purple fountain grass for quite some time. We didn’t know what it was called but based off of our description the staff knew exactly what I was looking for and took us straight to it.
Their website is user friendly and provides you with a list plants that they currently have on hand. When you check out you can browse their grocery store, and if you’re looking for a Community Supported Agriculture group to join you can sign up with them. It’s a great way to support local agriculture and get in on some amazing fruits and veggies.
Now as I mentioned in a previous blog post I have a black thumb. When it comes to plants and our yard that’s my husband’s domain. However I might be able to learn to have green thumb thanks to all the classes and events that Blooming Junction offers.
As you get ready to look for your spring and summer plants be sure to take the drive to visit. Blooming Junction is located at 35105 NW Zion Church Road in Cornelius.
